How to claim
- Check you meet the eligibility requirements.
- Select the ‘Claim online’ button.
- Follow the prompts to claim your rebate.
Once your claim has been approved, you’ll receive your payment within 3 to 8 business days. If you are claiming for 2 separate toll accounts, you will receive a separate payment for each account.
- If you want to claim as a sole trader but you've already claimed the toll relief rebate as a personal customer, you’ll need to:
- unlink your personal toll account
- link your mixed toll account.
- If a trip is not recorded on your tag, the toll spend will count towards the rebate if your vehicle number plate is linked to your account and can be photo-matched through video capture.
- Tolls for other future toll roads will be included when the roads open.
- Under the current Toll Relief Scheme, eligible motorists can claim free or half-price registration renewal until 30 June 2023.
