A22 tolls electronic payment
Always with the aim of providing the best possible service to our customers and knowing that the payment of tolls on the A22 or Via do Infante in Algarve is a major concern, from now on all the Algarve Car Hire cars delivered by Yor Car Hire in the Algarve and booked using our booking form for Algarve will be equiped with the electronic transponders for automatic payment of the A22 tolls.
The transponder does not need to be pre-booked as it will be available on arrival for all the clients that wish to have it.
All rental cars have the transponders and are connected to the license car number. They can't be removed from the car.
How can I have a transponder to go legally into the A22 road?
The transponders that YOR car hire offers you are available on arrival for all the clients that wish to have them; they do not need to be pre-booked.
How much will cost the transponder?
The transponder will have a cost of 20 euros, cash payment, and it already includes 15 euros of passages in it.
For minibus car models will have a cost of 30 euro, cash payment, and includes 25 euros of passages in it.
I know in advance, these initial 15 euros will not be enough for my journeys. How can I add more money?
On arrival should you choose to add more money to the transponder, our representatives can recharge it with a minimum of 10 euros and multiples of 10 euros, which will be added to the initial 15 euros.
I have started and finished my holidays and I did not spend the initial 15 euros. Will I get a refund?
Unfortunately no. Any amount left to use will not be possible to refund as we do not have that facility as well.
In case I decide not to use the A22, what will happen?
You need to provide the 20 euro for deposit, in cash. In case you did not use the A22 , we will refund the 20 euro.
When you lose the transponder or return damaged?
The company will charge 57 euro+ Vat for the replacement of the new transponder. You must not take the transponder form the car,as the cameras in the motorways will identify the car with the plate number, and will consider as a crime , punish by the European Law.
