Toll Roads & Infringements

Toll road


If you travel on a toll road, the toll fee must be paid within 5 days of using the road. Toll fees can be paid online at Tollroad or by calling 0800 40 20 20.

During the rental period, you, as the Hirer or Credit Card Holder are fully responsible for the payment of any infringements incurred. Please refer to clause 16 of the Rental Agreement for full details.

There are three toll roads in New Zealand: the Northern Gateway Toll Road north (Auckland), the Tauranga Eastern Link Toll Road (Tauranga) and the Takitimu Drive Toll Road (Tauranga).

Please Note: If you fail to pay a toll fee and Apex receives a notice of unpaid tolls, we will transfer liability for the infringement to you and charge administration fees for our time. At no point does Apex pay for toll fees or any other infringement, nor does Apex receive money to pay for them on your behalf.


In the event that Apex receives an infringement notice for a speeding, parking, or other traffic infringement relating to the period the vehicle was on hire, Apex will process a statutory declaration stating that the vehicle was on hire and provide name, address, and driver licence details of the hirer. The authority who issues the infringement notice will then forward the infringement notice to the hirer requesting payment. Apex charges the hirer a $25 administration fee for the time taken to process the statutory declaration and transfer of liability notice.

Please Note: Apex New Zealand does not pay any infringement notices and it is the sole responsibility of the hirer to pay all fines in relation to infringement notices issued during the rental period.
