It is quite disconcerting when you can approach the barrier at slow speed and it just lifts.... at the last minute!!
On a couple of the tolls when we got to the barrier a ticket came out of the machine and was then whipped back in when the device registered. Most alarming.
It gives off a small beep when it registers, so you will know whether it has worked or not.
Good device, saved some time and queuing and they take the money out of your account on the dot of when they say they will. Easy website, easy to see the tolls you have used and very efficient service. We did check that we had been charged the car rate because we have a large 4x4 and they say you can be mistaken by the system for the next toll rate up but we did not have any problems, even with skis on top.
I recommend it.
This device worked well, but Im not convinced. Im sure it did save us some time, but not much since we travelled outside of peak hours and the tolls were clear. For me it is a convenience thing ( not having to have cash or cards ready...or...diving out the window for a ticket ).
Im waiting to get the final bill through, including the monthly charges for using the tag ( sods law we used it in 2 months, so 2 charges ).
if you plan to travel in peak hours then I can see the advantages
We did comment that some cars obviously had a tag, but we caught them up in minutes, so from a time point of view not much benefit when tolls not chocka.
The roads were pretty good weren't they. Much like the slopes. No queues.
