Renter Question PlatePass® Response
1. What does it cost? Customers will be charged the cash or pay-by-mail toll rate, whichever is higher, as published by the toll authority, plus a service fee per rental day or a maximum monthly fee. If the Advantage rental is for multiple months, the PlatePass fees will only apply for the month when the PlatePass service was actually used. For example, if the car is rented for a two-month period, and PlatePass was only used during the first month, the fees will not apply to the second month. The month starts on the first day of the rental. Customers will be charged approximately 10 days after the rental car is returned. See your rental agreement for more information on service fees.
2. Why should I be interested? Speed and convenience. With PlatePass, you don’t need to wait in long lines to pay cash so you can get where you are going faster. There is no risk to use PlatePass as you are only charged if you go through a toll lane and do not pay cash at the time for the toll.
3. How do I sign up for PlatePass? Every rental car is PlatePass ready. No pre-enrollment or sign up is required. No extra paperwork is required and you do not have to stop at the Advantage counter.
4. How am I being charged for this service? The service fee is applied on a rental day basis. One daily fee for the entire day until midnight, whether 1 or 50 tolls are incurred during that day. The renter will not be charged an administrative fee for more than 5 days during a 30 day period, although tolls will be charged at the posted cash rate.
5. Why am I charged a service fee? The fee pays for the convenience of the program.
6. Where can I use this program? Colorado, Florida, North Carolina, the Greater San Francisco Bay Area, Texas, Washington and Puerto Rico
