What are my options for crossing the Golden Gate and Bay Area Bridges with my rental car?
Simply proceed over the Golden Gate and Bay Area bridges. A picture of the license plate will be captured at the toll plaza and payment for your tolls will be made electronically. Your use of these bridges will automatically enroll you in our TollPass™ Service. Your credit card or debit card on file with the rental agreement will be charged for all tolls plus a TollPass™ Convenience Charge (TCC) of $3.95 per usage day, not to exceed $19.75 per rental period. There is no TollPass™ Convenience Charge on rental days that you don't use a toll road.
How can I avoid TollPass™ charges?
To avoid our TollPass™ Convenience Charge simply pay for your toll BEFORE or within 48 hours AFTER you cross the Golden Gate Bridge southbound into San Francisco.
