Can I use LinktGO for rental or hire cars?
When driving a rental or car share vehicle, please check with your rental agency first about how to pay for planned or unplanned toll road travel, as many of their vehicles come equipped with toll payment accounts.
Proceed with caution
We do not recommend using LinktGO with any rental or car share vehicles that have a tag or other toll payment account, including but not limited to the following:
- Jucy Car Rental
And also: Ace Rentals, Alpha Car Hire, Andy's Auto, Apex, Atlas Car, Bargain, Bear Rentals, Bike Round OZ, Brisbane Car Rentals, Carnet Rentals, East Coast Car Rentals, Freebie Rentals, Haynes Hire, LTD Bus & Truck Rentals, Mobile Truck Rental, Newcastle Rental, PHD Refrigerated Van Rentals, Rent-a-Bomb Mascot, Rent-a-Ride, Rentco, Roadway Rental Car, RTH Refrigerated Transport Hire, Save Rent-a-Car, Southern Cross, Sydney Ute Van Hire, Turnbull's.
Your trips will automatically charge to the tag, not LinktGO.
If you’re unsure, ask your rental agency if your vehicle has a tolling account.
Even if you pay with LinktGO, you may be charged extra fees by the rental agency.
Good to GO
You can use LinktGO if you’re renting from an agency that does not have any toll payment account or tag.
Set an end date
When adding the vehicle, tap Rental Vehicle? To add an end date. This is the date and time you’d like LinktGO to stop applying the rental vehicle’s toll travel to your app. We recommend setting it to the time you return the rental so that you don’t get sent the next driver’s trips. Don't worry, even after you've removed the vehicle, you'll receive your trips for payment.
If you set your end date to less than 24 hours, you may see a warning recommending you keep the vehicle registered for a minimum of 24 hours. When you travel on the roads below, it takes 24 hours for that road to register your arrangement with LinktGO. Arranging for less than 24 hours may result in a toll notice or invoice with added fees, so we recommend extending your registration time to ensure your toll travel is covered.
Register for at least 24 hours if you plan to travel on the following roads:
- Sydney Harbour Bridge/Tunnel (NSW)
- EastLink (VIC)
Cover past travel
If you've already travelled, LinktGO can cover travel for up to 5 days prior to registering to the app.

Alternatively, if the vehicle doesn’t already have an account, you can open an account, to cover travel prior to registering for up to 9 days in QLD or 10 days in NSW or VIC.
