Rental Cars and paying the electronic tolls in Portugal

Jump to last reply

Here is some information from Europcar concerning paying the electronic tolls in Portugal that you might find useful:

Starting in early July 2012 , Europcar in Portugal is providing a new service called Electronic Toll Service - "Toll Management", a solution for payment of ex-SCUTs (highways with virtual tolls) and highways with toll booths.

All our vehicles (passenger light cars and light commercial vehicles) are equipped with an electronic toll device “Via Verde”. This service is effective ​​from the time when the electronic device is installed in the Europcar vehicle.

If you choose this service, you just need to fill out and sign the appropriate form (“Terms & Conditions”) and present a valid credit card at rental time.

This service has the cost of € 1.50 + VAT per day, charged up to a maximum of 10 days per rental. The value of the tolls will be debited at no additional cost to your customer’s credit card until 30 days after the end date of the rental.

The benefits of this new service, “Toll Management”, for you are very simple and clear:

• Facilitates compliance with Portuguese law, avoiding fines and additional administrative costs;
• Avoids stopping and waiting in queues at pay toll booths;
• Simplifies the payment of ex-SCUTs;
• Prevents unnecessary trips and waiting in queues at authorized payment authorities (Post Offices and Payshops).

Terms & Conditions of the Toll Management Service (“Toll Management”) to be filled out and signed by the Driver at the time of pick-up of the car.
