You have booked a Green Motion rental in one of the most exciting and adventure filled locations in the USA with a population of over 20 million residents permanently living in the Sunshine State. It is unsurprising that millions of tourists travel here every year to get a taste of the American dream.
In order to accommodate for the constant influx of tourists and to maintain the high quality of their roads, Florida has over 1,150 km of Tolls dispersed across the state. Each toll fee varies from $1 to $6 per one-way trip. Due to the high number of these roads in Florida, these charges can really mount up into a large unexpected expense.
What Is the Sun Pass?
A Sun Pass is an electronic device called a ‘toll transponder’, which can be attached to the inside windscreen of your rental car and covers all Toll costs during your visit to Florida. Every toll road and Express lane in Florida accepts these passes along with the majority of bridges as complete coverage of Toll fees at the lowest rate possible, no matter how many you choose to travel through.
Cameras are stationed at each Toll gate and they will recognise your vehicle as being registered with a SunPass and will automatically allow you immediate access through the toll. This not only substantially decreases the time you spend waiting to continue your journey but also eliminates the possibility of incurring large fines due to insufficient cash funds or entry into the incorrect toll lane. It should also be noted that whilst most roads accept cash as an alternate payment, some locations in Miami only have SunPass lanes and therefore require one of these transponders to pass through.
Purchasing the Sun Pass through Green Motion:
Green Motion offer the option of purchasing the Sun Pass at a cost of $12.99 per day. If the Sun Pass is not purchased with Green Motion, the customer accepts full liability for all Toll charges or violations within their rental period. Additionally, a charge of £50 per Toll fee will be applied by Green Motion to cover admin costs.
Purchasing the Sun Pass through Other Suppliers / Using Your Own Sun Pass:
A Sun Pass is not exclusive to Green Motion and they are available to purchase from other companies, as well as online, but please be aware that you would be responsible for the installation and activation of the Sun Pass in these cases.
