The EASYToll system is a new solution for automatic payment of electronic tolls, for tourists and immigrants, with the association of a credit card (Mastercard and Visa) to the license plate of the vehicle. The driver, not having to leave the vehicle, enters the credit card in the payment terminal and the system automatically associates the vehicle's license plate to the bankcard. The tolls rates owed are directly debited to the account associated with the card.
At the time of sign up, valid for 30 days, a ticket is issued as proof and must be kept.
The driver is always able to correct license plates numbers or cancel the membership, through the Call Center:
The sign up has a cost of 0.60€+VAT and each journey has an administrative cost of 0.26€+VAT.
Sign up at the Welcome Points located at the border posts at the following locations:
A28 - Viana do Castelo; A24 - Chaves; A25 – Vilar Formoso; A22 – Vila Real de Santo António

The driver can buy a prepaid ticket, with unlimited use for 3 days, for 20€ (only applies to light vehicles) which is added a service cost of 0.60€+VAT and an administrative cost of 0.26€+VAT per journey. There is also an option of a pre-paid ticket with previously defined date and journey:
Journey from Spain - Porto Airport, via A28 or A41 (round trip).
Journey from Spain - Faro Airport via A22 (round trip).
You can still purchase it at A24 highway service areas, at Porto and Faro airports and Matosinhos IKEA.

The TOLLCard is an "on the shelf" product, activated through an SMS, with a fixed amount to be consumed depending on circulation. This solution allows payment in cash or with bankcard, is valid for one year and your balance can be found on the Internet. It is aimed at tourists and immigrants. The driver can buy a pre-loaded card with 5, 10, 20 or 40 € (with an added service cost of 0.60€+VAT for each purchased card).
After purchasing the card, the driver shall proceed to its activation by sending an SMS by mobile phone with the code printed on the card and the license plate of the vehicle (instructions on the card), so that it is associated with the license plate of the vehicle. You can activate more than one card, with the accumulation of balances.
The driver can check the card balance HERE and when the card balance runs out, the customer will receive an alert SMS. The activated balances will be consumed depending on the use of highways with electronic toll collection only and for each journey it´s applied an administrative cost of 0.26€+VAT.
Each card is valid for one year after its activation.
A tollcard that is not activated or damaged can be returned in any CTT office and its purchasing cost will be refunded. The remaining credit can also be refunded if a credit card was used for the payment (as long this was ordered during the sign up), in a 6 month maximum period.
Buy it at CTT post-offices, at Portuguese highway´s service areas or at www.tollcard.pt.
