EastLink Account & Pass Options

We offer a range of options for paying EastLink tolls. To help you choose, explore their features and benefits below.

Tag Account

Key benefit

Tolls are cheapest when using a tag.

How it works

EastLink's pre-paid tag account can be opened with a single opening payment of $40, even if you want more than one tag. The opening payment is credited to your account as a pre-paid Account Balance. As you  incur tolls and charges, they are deducted from your Account Balance.

When your Account Balance drops below the Minimum Balance Amount for your account:

  • If you have automatic payment set up, the Top Up Amount will be deducted from your nominated credit/debit card or bank account.
  • Otherwise, your tag will beep three times when passing under a tolling gantry to tell you it's time to make a top up payment.

If your Account Balance drops below $0, we will send you a Suspension Warning to provide an opportunity to make a payment prior to your account being suspended.

If your account is suspended, we will send you a Suspension Notice and your tag will beep four times when passing under a tolling gantry. A suspended account can't be used to pay tolls, and you will receive a toll invoice with additional fees if you travel on any tollway. 

Compatible toll roads

A tag account works on all tollways in Australia.

Fees

Fees, charges and amounts may apply in addition to tolls.

Quick tips

Ensure that the class of the tag installed in each of your vehicles is exactly the same as the class of the vehicle. The tag class is printed next to the barcode on the side of each tag issued by EastLink.

To avoid unnecessary image processing fees, fit the tag in your vehicle according to the instructions provided with the tag:

Non-Tag Account

Key benefit

All the convenience of a pre-paid tag account, but without a tag.

How it works

EastLink's pre-paid non-tag account can be opened with a single opening payment of $40. The opening payment is credited to your account as a pre-paid Account Balance. As you incur tolls and charges, they are deducted from your Account Balance.

When your Account Balance drops below the Minimum Balance Amount for your account:

  • If you have automatic payment set up, the Top Up Amount will be deducted from your nominated credit/debit card or bank account.
  • Otherwise, we will send you a Low Balance Warning email (or SMS) to tell you it's time to make a top up payment.

If your Account Balance drops below $0, we will send you a Suspension Warning to provide an opportunity to make a payment prior to your account being suspended.

If your account is suspended, we will send you a Suspension Notice. A suspended account can't be used to pay tolls, and you will receive a toll invoice with additional fees if you travel on any tollway.

A non-tag account only works on EastLink and CityLink. It does not work interstate.

Fees

An Image Processing Fee will be charged in addition to the toll for every trip made. (The image processing fee is waived for motorcycles as they don't have a tag option.)

EastLink Trip Pass

Key benefit

Pay per trip without needing an account. 

How it works

One EastLink trip pass pays for a single trip in one direction on EastLink only. E.g. a return trip on EastLink requires two trip passes.

The price of each EastLink trip pass is fixed, and does not vary with the length of your journey on EastLink. You can travel the full length of EastLink in one direction for the cost of one trip pass.

A trip pass can be purchased before your trip on EastLink, or up to 3 days after.

You can buy more than one EastLink trip pass at a time. When you buy a trip pass you don't need to tell us when you're going to use it. We'll store each trip pass until you make the trip on EastLink.

A trip pass is not refundable or transferable. An unused trip pass expires 6 months after purchase.

Compatible toll roads

An EastLink trip pass only works on EastLink. It does not work on any other tollway.

Fees

Fees, charges and amounts apply in addition to tolls.

Quick tips

On our website you can check to see if there are any unused trip passes available for your vehicle.

With one trip pass you can exit EastLink and re-enter in the same direction provided you don't repeat a section and you complete your trip within one hour after you first entered EastLink.

Toll Invoice

Key benefit

No need to arrange an account or trip pass - just wait for our invoice to arrive.

How it works

If you travel on EastLink without a valid tag or account, and without buying an EastLink trip pass within three days after your trip, we will send a Toll Invoice to the registered owner of the vehicle. The Toll Invoice includes fees in addition to the tolls incurred.

You have three main options when settling a toll invoice, one of which you need to have completed by the Due Date displayed on the toll invoice:

  • pay it
  • nominate someone else as the driver at the time of travel
  • transfer it to a non-EastLink account, if you believe at the time of travel you had a valid tolling account issued by a tollway other than EastLink. (You cannot transfer a toll invoice to an EastLink account. We would already have done that if it was possible.)

If you do not take action by the Due Date, we will send you an Overdue Notice, which has higher fees.

Failure to settle an Overdue Notice will result in Victoria Police issuing an infringement notice (a "fine") to the vehicle's owner or driver. The cost of an infringement notice would be $159 for each day of unregistered travel on EastLink.

Compatible toll roads

EastLink toll invoices only cover trips on EastLink.

Fees

Additional fees apply in addition to tolls.

Quick tips

You must ensure that your VicRoads (or interstate) vehicle registration details including your address details are accurate and up to date.

If your tolling account is suspended and you receive a Toll Invoice or Overdue Notice for unregistered travel on EastLink, you need to top up your account AND pay the toll invoice or overdue notice separately. Reactivating your account by topping it up will not cover trips taken on EastLink while the account was suspended.

If your vehicle is a Taxi, you cannot transfer a toll invoice to an account - you can only pay it or nominate someone else.

Business Account

Key benefit

Monthly invoicing in arrears.

How it works

EastLink's post-paid business account is only available to businesses and organisations that want to pay monthly in arrears.

Businesses and organisations applying for a post-paid business account are subject to a credit check.

Tolls and charges are invoiced monthly in arrears.

Payment options include EFT, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Diners Club and cheque.

Tag option

A tag account works on all tollways in Australia.

Non-tag option

A non-tag account only works on EastLink and CityLink. It does not work interstate.

Fees

Fees, charges and amounts apply in addition to tolls, including a quarterly Account Management Fee.

Quick tips
