A22 TOLL SYSTEM 
The Algarve's main motorway, the A22, operates an unmanned toll system.

All cars are equipped with a toll transponder device, upon collection of your rental car you'll be asked for a 20 euro cash deposit (30 euro for mini buses) for the transponder.

This includes 15 EUR (25 euro for mini buses) worth of pre-loaded credit and enables clients to use the toll road without having to visit local pay stations/post offices.

An option to add more credit (by a minimum of 10 euro and multiples hereof) to the transponder is available upon collection or during the rental.

Remaining unused toll can unfortunately not be refunded.

If you know in advance that you'll not use the A22 a credit card slip will be made as security and kept for 5 days after the return of the car, then destroyed. Return to top.
