Toll roads

Driving on most national motorways, as well as some bridges and tunnels in Turkey, requires payment of a  toll. 

Most Turkish toll roads only accept electronic, contactless payment from an electronic transponder that’s in a car or by a sticker with an electronic chip affixed to the car’s windshield. This means that you cannot pay either by cash or credit card for most toll roads. 

All rental cars have to be equipped either with a toll transponder or sticker. Some rental car providers might charge an extra fee for this service. contact your rental car provided in advance to find out more. 

The toll roads in Turkey are divided among HGS, the High-Speed Passage System (Hızlı Geçiş Sistemi in Turkish), and OGS (Otomatik Geçiş Sistemi in Turkish). On HGS roads, you can pass through the toll area at a higher speed. On OGS roads, you need to slow down as you go through a toll gate and the toll payment is registered through the electronic transponder that’s in a car. The exact amount you’ll have to pay will depend on the specific road you drive on and on the distance of your travels.

Find out more about toll roads in Turkey on the European toll road website.
