Rent an E-Z Pass on Vacation?

Springtime is a peak vacation time.  You may be traveling yourself or hosting out of town family and might have occasion to use rental cars.

Some rental car companies are offering those electronic bridge/toll passes (E-Z Pass) as part of their services.  Having an E-Z Pass is a big time saver if you anticipate being on toll roads as they can save a lot of time on toll both lines.

However, be wary of the cost!  Some of these rental car companies tack on a daily charge even if don’t use it AND they charge the cash-rate for the toll . . . not the discounted E-Z Pass rate.

We suggest that you take your own EZ-Pass with you (check to see if it works at your destination) or pay cash (have exact change).
