EZ Pass: The Ultimate RV Driving CompanionEZ Pass is the ultimate RV driving companion. This program allows you to pass through east coast toll lanes at toll plazas without having to stop and pay with cash. EZ Pass will automatically deduct your toll from your account. You can also set up an E-ZPass account for someone else – like a spouse or family member who does not drive with you on every trip – so that they can benefit too!
How Do I Get An EZ Pass?
Table of Contents
You can get an EZ Pass by visiting the website of the E-ZPass company in your state. You will need to create an account and provide personal information, including your driver’s license number. Once you have registered, you will be able to purchase a transponder (or “tag”) to put on your windshield. transponders can either be installed right onto the glass, or they can be fitted with a mount that sticks to the window using suction cups.
A tag costs about $25, and it will typically come with an available toll balance of around $20 (which you will have to add). You’ll fill out some personal information when you buy the EZ Pass, and the company will send you a sticker to put on your windshield. You can also get more tags for additional vehicles.
What States Does It Work In?
EZ Pass is accepted in 15 states/ locations and toll roads in Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Virginia. E-ZPass also works in the District of Columbia. For a full list of E-ZPass participating states/ locations and more information, visit the E-ZPass website.
There are other types of toll payment systems that work in some states and not others: The main ones include EZ Tag (Texas), FasTrak (California), and Sunpass (Florida). If you’re traveling to one of these states from out of state, find out if this will work there and what you’ll need to do differently to pay your toll road fees and toll invoices.
How Much Does EZ Pass Cost?
There is an initial cost for the transponder (for example, $35 in the state of VA), and then some states charge a small monthly or annual fee to keep your account active. The amount of tolls you’ll pay also varies by state. You can find a full list of rates on the E-ZPass website. Each state manages its own website for tolls and transponder/ pay by plate sites.
How Does EZ Pass Work?
When you approach a toll plaza, your EZ Pass will detect it and automatically deduct the toll from your EZ Pass account. You do not need to stop, slow down or take any special action at all! E-ZPass is completely hands-free -you can access a service toll plaza as if you had no tag on your windshield.
What Are The Benefits Of EZ Pass?
There are many benefits, including:
– EZ Pass is a convenient way to pay your tolls. You never need to worry about exact change or to have coins on hand – drive through any E-ZPass lane as you normally would, and the system will take care of the rest. This system is a real-time saver!
– Reduced tolls – in some states, drivers pay a discounted rate on all tolls
– No need to stop or slow down at the toll plaza
-E Zpass only lane (less traffic and waiting)
– E Z Pass is completely hands-free!
– The transponder can be used in 15 states and the District of Columbia
How Can I Manage My E ZPass Account?
You can manage your account online, including adding money, viewing past transactions, and updating your personal information. It is also possible to receive email or text alerts when your balance gets low. You never have to worry about running out of funds while on the road.
Can I Save Money With an EZ Pass Transponder?
Yes! Drivers typically pay a discounted rate on all tolls. EZ Pass is the only way to get this discount in some states, so if you’re traveling in one of these states, be sure to have your transponder with you. You can find a full list of rates on the website.
Ways To Pay
Forms of payment accepted by E-ZPass include cash, check, debit card, and credit card.
There are a few different ways to pay your bill:
You can pay online using a debit or credit card.
– By Mail:
Send a check or money order payable to the E-ZPass agency.
What If I Have a Rental RV or Car?
Rental vehicles are EZ Pass-friendly, as long as the vehicle is equipped with the correct hardware. You can either purchase this through your rental agency, or you’ll have the option of renting a transponder for a small fee if there isn’t one built into your car when you pick it up. Depending on your needs and the rental agency’s policies, transponders can be rented for a day or several months.
If You’re Not From An E-ZPass State, Is There An Alternative To Purchasing A Transponder When Traveling?
Some alternatives allow you to use EZ Pass even if it isn’t offered where you live:
– Use a toll service like EZ Pay (which works with EZ Pass) or PlatePass (which uses your license plate number).
– Get an EZ Pass from a different state. If you’re traveling to one of the 15 states that accept this pass, this could be a good option for you.
-Pay by plate. You can pay by plate for tolls if you would rather pay tolls and not get an transponder for the E-ZPass toll states. Register your license plate on the website and pay the tolls as needed. This is an option if you are only visiting the states for a short time. (Same as PlatePass).
In conclusion, EZ Pass is the ultimate driving companion. You never have to worry about exact change or having coins on hand – drive through any E-ZPass lane as you normally would, and the system will take care of the rest. This system is a real-time saver!
