Auto Rent now provides a service that allows you to drive on the A-22 without worries!

The A-22 Motorway has automatic tolls that charge when you drive under the gates spread between the exits.

Introducing the E-Tolls extra

  • You pay €1.85/day for the rental of the device
  • You're free to drive around on the A-22 and avoid traffic on the N-125
  • When you return the car, you only pay for the tolls you used
  • No pre-pay, no extra costs, no tolls in your mail

Should you choose not to use our E-Tolls service, any tolls that are not paid will be sent to your home address, and you will be charged an administration fee by the highway company.

Please note that due to the tolling company stating that it can present tolls up to 15 days later, some charges may come after your departure, but we will contact you should that happen.

Auto Rent Rating

Here are some customer reviews left by our customers:

Anonymous, 5 Aug 2014
Faultless experience - staff were quick and friendly on arrival and departure. Car was ideal - no problems at all. Would recommend to friends.

Bill, 17 Feb 2014
Excellent courteous service. The gentlemen who dealt with us advised us to pay for the motorway toll transponder, which we did, and although we mostly used the N125 we had a worry free driving experience. The toll charges we did incur were automatically charged to our credit card. The car was excellent.
