Stopping at tolls is a hassle most of us simply accept – especially when we are abroad and can’t have an automated pass for the toll system in the country we’re visiting.
National Car Rental has decided that isn’t good enough for its customers. According to Greg Stubblefield, President of National Car Rental, “our customers want to get on the road and to their destination quickly and safely. We know from listening to our customers that they don’t like fumbling for loose change and waiting in line at toll booths.”
To address this issue, National has introduced the Toll Pass system in the USA. Initially being piloted at Newark Liberty International Airport, Toll Pass uses the established E-ZPass automated toll payment system. Customers will pay an additional fee to use Toll Pass and will then be billed for all the tolls they incur after the car rental has been completed.
The scheme will shortly be expanded to National’s sister company Alamo and will be expanded to other states including Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia over the coming months.
