Traveling to Georgia



PlatePass® is an electronic toll payment system that enables renters to use high-speed electronic toll lanes. The PlatePass service also enables rental car customers to avoid costly toll violation fines otherwise incurred if high-speed toll lanes are used without special equipment. PlatePass is offered by participating rental car companies including Hertz and Dollar Thrifty throughout Georgia. When renters travel with PlatePass on the I-85 express toll lanes when driving a participating rental vehicle, they are protected from costly fines.

If the tag is not functional or not mounted properly on the windshield, the tag will not be activated or be read by the toll system when the customer passes through the toll lane. In this case, the customer would be charged for the toll through the PlatePass service. Although not possible, if a customer feels that they have been double billed by PeachPass and PlatePass, they can contact PlatePass at 1-877-411-4300.
