We've been loads and I didn't know about this either

We have used Car on the Drive for the last 5 trips and didn't need this

Prefer using that garage as its easier for the South exit.
Didn't spot that. Hopefully they will add B as, like you, we're on auto-pilot out of there to the 417 south.

I'll send Joan ahead to Alamo at B to pick a nice car whilst I sprint to level 1 side A

The web site appearance has changed and I must have a quick read to see if it's still the same as before. If it is it's truly a no-brainer.

I've just had a quick look at the link and this looks really good. Thanks for posting Mick

After so many trips there is always something new

We've hired a car on all our 37 trips and this is the best toll aid since sliced bread. The VTP was only launched in summer 2019 and suspended 2020.

Quite simply you hang the tag from the rear view mirror and its bar code is read as you leave the garage. You can then drive through any lane at the toll plazas without stopping. Somehow the toll authority's technology will sift out VTP use and filter out any hire car data - you won't get double-dipped by the VTP and your CC.

Makes absolute sense Helen as VS and BA, at least, fly into B.

We will use it if we get out as we will have 2 cars so Ill use our Toll pass and DH the Visitors pass just to compare charges etc might be the way to go if it works and saves faffing about registering the rental details on our toll pass every trip

Can you use it if you collect the tag at the airport and then put it in your hire car if you are picking up from the WDW car care centre?

This was my experience in 2019.

I logged on to my VTP account when we reached the villa about 40 minutes after leaving MCO. It already showed which lane I passed through and the times at the three plazas on the 417. The exit ramp at j3 on the 417 was also charged at 56 cents instead of a dollar.

No admin fee and some tolls cheaper. What's not to like?
