5th July 2016 - Contactless Payment


We now accept payment using contactless credit/debit cards* at all staffed and automated lanes, excluding dedicated SevernTAG lanes.

What are the benefits?
Using contactless payment is quicker than paying toll operators or using your card’s chip. What’s more, a contactless transaction also means you generally spend less time waiting to pay, which makes your journey more efficient. Contactless is also more convenient than paying by cash, as it eliminates the need to search for change.

How do I pay using contactless?
Each lane features contactless terminals in two locations, so whether you’re driving a car, commercial vehicle or HGV, you can easily make a payment using your contactless credit/debit card using the terminal nearest to you.

If your credit/debit card has a contactless symbol, simply place it in front of the terminal and wait for the transaction to be authorised.

So the next time you’re crossing, look for the contactless logo and terminals and get yourself back on the road in no time.

Looking for more?
If you’re a regular commuter and are looking for truly hassle-free and cost-effective trips across the bridges, why not apply for a SevernTAG?

23rd June 2016 - Change to Non Payment of Toll Charges

With effect from today, our Non Payment of Tolls charging structure is changing.  If you are given a Non Payment of Tolls Invoice, we ask you to pay this within 24 hours, if the invoice is not paid within 24 hours an additional administration charge will be added.
The administration charge is £80 and must be paid within 7 days. It's reduced to £40 if you pay within 3 days and increased to £105 if you don't pay. The original Toll Charge and £5 administration charge is also payable.
This change has been made to align our charging structure with other similar service providers and offers a discount period for early payers.
