Hertz offers PlatePass® for toll roads!!!

Avoid slow toll lanes and traffic getting in your way when you use PlatePass®. PlatePass® is currently available in the 12 Northeast and Mid-Atlantic States, Florida, Colorado, Texas and Northern California Bay area. Specific locations are listed below.

In the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states, PlatePass® works with transponders which are small devices that affix to the windshield below the rearview mirror. This device allows you to use the EZ Pass and I Pass lanes.

All of our vehicles in Florida, Colorado, Texas, the Greater San Francisco Bay Area and Northern California are PlatePass® enabled. There is no need to sign up or reserve anything. If you would like to use the cashless toll lanes all you have to do is drive through. In this area, your rental car license plate acts as the transponder.
