Mersey Tunnels - Fast Tag
If you use the Mersey Tunnels you could save money on every journey no matter how many times you travel through. The Fast Tag itself is FREE and you can save over £150 a year on all your journeys under the Mersey!
Fast Tag is the most efficient and cost effective way to pass through the Mersey Tunnels. It’s an electronic pre-payment system which you pay by monthly direct debt and top-up as and when you need more funds to travel. If your account credit builds up you can request a refund at any time.
There’s a number of benefits when using a Fast Tag for your tunnel journeys:
Save 30p on each journey through the tunnel which could save you over £150 a year.
Unused credit on your account rolls over to the following month (or request a refund at any time).
The Fast Tag device is free* – all your funds go towards your journey.
Use the auto lanes at the Tunnel Toll Plaza – no need to scrabble for change (Class 1 Tags only).
Check your credit or top-up online via our “account management” options.
Pay by monthly direct debit, so that the amount you set is automatically added to your Fast Tag account each month.
Have a number of Fast Tags linked to the same account, tags can be used in any vehicle of the same class.
Set your own low credit warning (an amber light will show at the tunnel plaza barrier when you’ve reached this amount).
Online statements show a full itemised history of your journeys – ideal for receipt purposes. Request monthly e-statements to keep a check of your balance.
