AVIS/Budget Pricing

Toll Payment Options

  • Renters should plan ahead if they anticipate incurring toll charges during their travel.
  • Renters are strongly encouraged to use a SunPass transponder. Renters must add the rental vehicle’s license plate number to the SunPass account at time of pick-up and remove the license plate number from the account when the vehicle is returned.
  • If the renter uses a SunPass transponder or pays cash for tolls, the renter must ensure that the shield box for the Avis/Budget e-Toll transponder is in the “closed” position.
  • If the renter travels through a toll plaza without using a SunPass transponder or paying cash, the renter will automatically be charged for using the Avis/Budget e-Toll service. The renter will be charged the actual cost for all tolls plus an e-Toll convenience fee of $4.95 for each day a toll is incurred. The convenience fee will not exceed $24.75 for the entire rental period. Toll charges and convenience fees will be charged to the method of payment for the associated rental within two to eight weeks after the vehicle is returned.
