It’s going to be a busy year for the motor industry. January saw car sales exceed 39,000*, and the 2017 forecast of new car sales is expected to reach 142,000*.
We want to remind you to avoid the hassle and save time by updating your vehicle details. This is important if you are buying a new car or van, or indeed selling your own vehicle to avoid incurring toll bills, in particular eFlow penalty notices from M50. Easytrip doesn’t penalise customers and we don’t want to see our customers being charged unnecessarily.
Possible scenarios that can lead to you paying unnecessary toll charges include:
- Buying a new car: if you’ve bought a new car and transferred your existing tag to it but forgot to update your account details, you’ll risk receiving a toll bill (billed at the higher rate) and penalty charge if you’ve travelled through the M50 toll plaza as your new car registration is not connected to your toll tag account.
- Selling your old car: if you’ve sold your old car and inadvertently left your tag in the car and haven’t updated your toll tag account, the new owner could continue to use your tag at most barrier toll plazas, racking up a bill connected to your account.
