Prepay tolls at car hire desk?

We were persuaded to buy a 'toll pass' when hiring our car in Miami - costing us way over the odds. How many toll roads are we likely encounter and at what approx. cost on a trip from Boston airport to Cape Cod, Newport and return.

I think the only toll you'll have driving from Logan to Cape Cod to Newport and back to the airport will be the tunnel toll upon leaving the airport. I think the toll is $3.50.

The big toll road in Massachusetts is the Mass. Turnpike.

Ting is correct. What did it cost you and how does that supposedly work?

Is it really prepaying the tolls or just paying for a transponder and you will be charged a fee for that plus the tolls?

Isn't there a toll bridge on way to Newport? haven't been in a while but thought there was.

There is a toll bridge to Newport if you are arriving from the West, the Narragansett side. But if you drive from the Cape or Boston on Rt. 24 into Newport, there's no toll.

I would definitely pass on that offer. Pay your $3.50 to leave the airport, and that will be all the tolls you'll encounter with your current itinerary.

The toll booth near the rentals is fairly easy to get thru. Paying cash will not take long.
