No tag required with a Breeze non-tag account
The Breeze non-tag account is a pre-paid account, and can be opened with a single opening payment of $40. The opening payment will be credited to your account as a pre-paid balance, ready to pay your tolls and charges.
The Breeze non-tag account works on EastLink and CityLink, and calculates your tolls by tracking images of your vehicle's licence plate. The Breeze non-tag account won't work on interstate tollways.
With a non-tag account, each trip you make on EastLink or CityLink will be charged an image processing fee in addition to the toll. The image processing fee is (from 1 July 2012) 26 cents for each trip on EastLink, and 75 cents for each trip on CityLink. The image processing fee is waived for motorcycles.
If you have more than one vehicle, you can register the licence plate number of each of your vehicles on the one Breeze non-tag account.
Non-tag account with the flexible payment option
If you want a Breeze non-tag account with an account set up amount as low as $5 (compared to the usual minimum of $40), or make top up payments as low as $5 (compared to the usual minimum of $30), or operate your account with a minimum account balance as low as $3.14 (compared to the usual minimum balance of $12.56), you can choose to open a non-tag account with the flexible payment option.
This option includes a small top up fee, which is charged each time you make a top up payment lower than the usual minimum of $30.
You will still be required to maintain your account in credit, with a positive account balance.
