Travelers renting a car in Orlando are familiar with the tollways leading to Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando, I-Drive, and Fort Lauderdale. Previously, guests would need to carry spare change or purchase a toll program from the rental car companies. Now visitors can partake in a trial Visitor Toll Pass starting May 1 and running through August 1, 2019. The new pass promises to save money for those who pay cash or purchase a toll pass through a rental car company.
How Does It Work?
Visitors register online for their Visitor Toll Pass prior to their trip and pick up their passes in the airport. Visitor Toll Pass are hung on the rear view mirror of their vehicle, granting entry through any E-Pass, SunPass, or LeeWay express lanes. Tolls are automatically paid for using an on file credit card.
Once your vacation is complete return the Visitor Toll Pass at a drop box located along the pedestrian walkways from the rental cars to the airport terminals. Any Visitor Toll Passes not returned will incur a $10 fee in addition to any tolls the vehicle passed through.
Why Use A Visitor Toll Pass?
There are two advantages to using a visitor toll pass: time and money. Travelers with a visitor toll pass can skip the staffed toll booths lines and use the express lanes to pay for tolls. Additionally the Visitor Toll Pass grants travelers a reduced electronic toll rate, 23% off the listed toll (a $2 toll would reduce to $1.54).
How Much Does It Cost?
The Visitor Toll Pass is free, you just have to pay for the tolls you pass through. If a Visitor Toll Pass is not returned at the end of a trip a $10 fee is applied to the credit card.
How and Where Do I Get One?
Register online prior to the trip with the name, address, trip information, and a credit card of the guest using the pass. Once at the Orlando International Airport proceed to the Visitor Toll Pass counter on Level 1 of Terminal A or B between 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 a.m. to pick up the pass.
