    We know that excellent service is your bread and butter. We’re here to help you get those 5-star Uber reviews every time.

    Toll roads make this difficult – you’ll either get a fine, or will waste precious time finding a way around them. If you sign up for an e-TAG, toll roads will no longer be an obstacle.

    Why you need an e-TAG

    • Get to your destination faster
    • Skip intense traffic
    • Avoid fines
    • Zero-contact paperwork

    How to get an e-TAG

    1. Go to service.nsw.gov.au
    2. Click ‘Apply online’
    3. Open an e-Toll account
      You’ll need:
      – Car registration
      – Your ABN number
      – Personal details
    4. Provide payment details
      Minimum opening balance: $40

    Important: If you rent your Uber car from Splend, any unpaid fees will come through to us and we’ll pay them for you. You can avoid the $40 late payment fee if you always keep your e-TAG payments up to date.
