Driving around Dublin got slightly easier with the introduction of Barrier Free Tolls (eToll) on the M50 ringroad. When you approach and drive through the Toll Plazas one of the following happens:
1) If your car is fitted with an electronic tag your pre-pay account will be debited – or you can pay on-line. Details of all tag operators and types of accounts are available at www.tagcompare.ie.
2) If you have a video account with eFlow you can pay from this account.
3) A photo is taken of your vehicle’s registration data and you have until 20:00 the following day to pay the toll. You can pay at www.eflow.ie, by phone (LoCall 1890 50 10 50) or at Payzone branded shops nationwide through a type of chip and pin machine. To find your nearest outlet visit www.payzone.ie.
Be careful, though, as there is a debt collection agency in operation to follow toll avoiders back to their home countries, so prompt payment is advised. If you forget, a €3 toll could rapidly become a €145 bill. Not a nice welcome home present. For more info log onto www.tii.ie.
