PlatePass® is an automated toll payment solution that enables Budget Truck Rental customers to use toll gated lanes, cashless toll collection lanes, or all-electronic toll roads and bridges. Tolls are assessed when the radio frequency signal collects information from the PlatePass® transponder mounted to the windshield of the truck. The vehicle’s license plate is electronically registered in video tolling regions of the country.
Customers can purchase PlatePass® on the road by sliding open the PlatePass® transponder box. Customers automatically opt in when traveling through cashless toll collection lanes or on all-electronic toll roads and bridges. The PlatePass® service adds a $3.95 convenience fee for each rental day with a maximum fee of $19.75 per rental agreement, plus incurred tolls at the maximum prevailing rates posted by the toll authority. All toll and fee charges will be assessed by PlatePass® (post rental) to the credit card/account associated with the rental agreement.
Video-Plate-Based Electronic Tolling
If you do not pay cash for tolls at an issuer-designated toll payment station, or if the roadway does not accept cash payment, once you pass through an in-network electronic toll, a photo will be taken of the license plate and you automatically opt into the PlatePass® toll service.
If the truck is equipped with an electronic toll collection device (transponder) operable with the toll road you are traveling and you wish to use the PlatePass® toll service, slide open the transponder box located on the windshield and drive through a designated transponder-based lane. If a transponder box is present and you do not wish to use the toll service, do not open the transponder box.
Fines, Expenses, Costs, Convenience Fees, and Administrative Fees
You agree to pay us or the PlatePass® toll program administrator, ATS Processing Services, LLC and affiliates (ATS), with whom we will share your credit card/debit card and contact information, for all tolls incurred during your rental and all related fees, charges and penalties. Under the PlatePass® toll program, once you pass through an electronic toll or open the transponder box, and a toll is assessed, you will pay a convenience fee of $3.95 for each day, with a maximum fee of $19.75 per rental agreement, including any days on which tolling is not used, plus incurred tolls at the maximum prevailing rates posted by the toll authority. Toll charges will be billed separate from your rental charges and to the same credit card/debit card used for the rental, or you will be invoiced in the absence of a card on file. Charges may take up to six (6) months after the rental to be billed.
Toll violations will result in an administrative fee not to exceed $50 per toll issuer.
YOU CAN AVOID THE CONVENIENCE FEE AND ANY OTHER TOLL CHARGES BY PAYING THE TOLL IN CASH, USING YOUR OWN ELECTRONIC TOLL DEVICE, OR AVOIDING ANY CASHLESS TOLL ROAD OR PASSAGE.
You authorize us to release the rental and credit/debit card information regarding your rental to ATS Processing Services, LLC and affiliates (ATS) as our agent for the purpose of processing and billing you for tolls and toll violations incurred by you or assessed against us or the vehicle during your rental. You authorize ATS as our agent to bill the credit/debit card you used to rent the vehicle or you will be invoiced in the absence of a card on file. You authorize ATS to contact you directly regarding any tolls, toll violations, tickets, citations, fines and penalties incurred by you or assessed against us or to our vehicle while the vehicle was rented to you. In the event we use a third party collection and/or administrative agent, you agree to pay all costs and collection fees including, but not limited to, administrative and legal costs to such agent upon demand without protest. You agree to indemnify and hold us and ATS harmless for any tolls, tickets, citations, fines, penalties and administrative fees.
