Dollar Rent A Car is bundling the fee for its Pass24 prepaid toll service into the rates for rental cars in certain Florida locations when an American Express credit card is used for payment.

Using the Pass24 service, drivers are permitted to drive through designated express toll lanes without stopping to physically pay the toll. The Pass24 service enables the toll to be collected through a video technology system that records the vehicle license plate.

Ordinarily, the Pass24 pre-paid toll service is available to Dollar customers in Florida for $5.95 per day, or $27.95 per week, which includes all toll charges.

However, through March 31 the Pass24 fee will be included in the Dollar car rental rate for customers using an American Express card for payment. Customers must use promo code AXTL when making the booking.

"With this promotion in Florida, not only will travelers get a great rate with Dollar, they'll also get the convenience of prepaid tolls with Pass24, said Brian Carpenter, vice president of sales, marketing and advertising, in a statement.

Pass24 is currently offered at all Dollar locations in Florida, including Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, Fort Meyers, Jacksonville, Key West, Miami, Naples, Sanford, Tallahassee, West Palm Beach and Tampa. Pass24 allows drivers to use the SunPass Only and E-Pass Only express lanes on the Florida toll road system.
