Hertz rental vehicles
New toll product for Hertz rental vehicles
Launching on 15 September 2013, the new Hertz Toll Day Pass will cover all your toll charges under one flat fee. The rate is $9.90 incl GST per rental day for passenger cars. Heavy vehicles will incur a higher variable toll charge per rental day. You can choose to take this option at any time during your rental. Charges for the service will then appear on your invoice at the end of the rental period, and you will never receive any subsequent toll charges or administration fees.
For longer term rentals, there is an alternate option that records all toll roads you’ve driven on, and the actual toll amounts and matching fee plus a per rental/monthly fee of $11 incl GST to cover administration costs and matching fee will be invoiced to you by Hertz shortly after your rental.
If you choose one of these options when collecting your Hertz rental vehicle, you can register your details for automatic payment of tolls on EastLink and CityLink as well as interstate tollways. This enables you to travel on EastLink without having to arrange a tag or pass before renting your vehicle.
If you do NOT choose either of these options when collecting your Hertz rental vehicle, then you need to make your own arrangements for payment of tolls. In this case we recommend that you buy an EastLink trip pass for each one way trip on EastLink.

Information correct at time of publication (Sep 2013).
When driving a Hertz rental vehicle which you have asked Hertz to register for automatic payment of tolls you should not use any other tag or tolling product of any other toll provider. This means you should not buy an EastLink trip pass, otherwise you would incur an unnecessary cost (as EastLink trip passes are not refundable).
When driving a Hertz rental vehicle which you have NOT asked Hertz to register for automatic payment of tolls or for any other reason has not been registered by Hertz for automatic payment of tolls we recommend that you buy an EastLink trip pass for each one way trip on EastLink.
