Car toll in Italy with the Telepass box
The Italian toll system proves to be complicated for car drivers. The toll box Telepass is a substantial relief.
Many motorway operator companies divide the route network among themselves and partly demand different fees which are usually based on the actual traveled distance. In addition, there are also motorway sections for which a certain flat rate is payable.
The toll in Italy is usually payable at toll stations with barriers. If you are driving without a Telepass, you must take a ticket at the entrance to the motorway, store it carefully and, at the exit, present it again for the calculation of the toll in order to pay the amount due by credit card, ViaCard or cash.
Unlike with the toll box Telepass: This device opens the barrier at the toll station automatically, both at the entrance and at the exit. Thus, Telepass users drive nonstop through the tollbooth, often on specially reserved lanes that lead by the traffic jams in the other lanes.
An automatic collection of the toll with a Telepass was previously only possible for users with an Italian bank account. tolltickets now also provides the Telepass to all drivers without a bank account in Italy.
An online registration is sufficient and the dispatch of the toll box Telepass takes place on the desired day.
The Telepass also functions on the ferry Villa San Giovanni – Messina from the Italian mainland to Sicily. Please drive to the Telepass lane. The purchase of a ticket in the Biglietteria is not necessary. Further information can be found at this link: Please click here!
Also the Telepass can be used in many Italian parking buildings. You will find more detailed information via this link: Please click here!

A Telepass per vehicle is provided to you through tolltickets.
Very often there are extra lanes reserved exclusively for Telepass (yellow lanes). As a rule, these lanes begin many hundred metres ahead of the toll station and allow you to drive on past the queues at the manual toll booths.
Almost all lanes are marked with this "T". It allows fully automated use with a Telepass.
You can manage the Telepass easily and above all quickly, as a small electronic receiver which is attached to the windscreen. This box enables you to use the specifically designated Telepass lanes at Italian toll stations, thereby enabling you to continue without having to stop. The Telepass registers every transit passage and automatically transmits the corresponding data to tolltickets for charging purposes.
The Telepass toll box is linked to the license plate of your vehicle. However, the toll box can be used at any time in another vehicle. Before changing the vehicle, you only have to change the toll box to the new vehicle in your My account area.

You should not rely on payment by credit card because credit cards or all credit cards are not accepted everywhere. The credit card lanes are not manned by personnel. If you drive into a lane with credit card acceptance and your card is not accepted then you will need to get manual help. Turning around is strictly prohibited and can be very expensive.
