I'm traveling to Denver next month and will be on the ground for about 9 days. Best car rental rate I could find is from Dollar. I read about the tolling issues as they affect car rental drivers and then looked into Dollar's Pass24 solution. If I were to take this option it would add over $100 to the cost of my rental.
I corresponded with Dollar and asked if I could 'use my own device' and received a response that I could. I also spoke to someone at Dollar's customer service and asked if I had my own ExpressToll account if I could add the license plate of the rental car to the account and they said I could. I called ExpressToll and they said I could sign up for an account online at: www.expresstoll.com and then add the license plate number for the rental car to my account from the rental agency's lot and indicate the start and end dates for the the license plate. I can do this from my iphone.
Looking at the ExpressToll website it appears that this is a viable solution. There are no recurring charges for the ExpressToll account and if you use the 'license plate reader' option instead of the sticker, you do not need to keep a credit balance in your account.
Has anyone else used this solution before, and if so, were there any problems later?
Thanks for your help.
