Mersey Tunnels - Fast Tag

Fast Tag

If you use the Mersey Tunnels you could save money on every trip no matter how many times you travel through.

Plus we now have a Fast Tag only lane at the Kingsway Tunnel Toll Plaza to make your journey even quicker. The device comes free when you sign up to be a Fast Tag user and you could go on to save over £150 a year.

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 Fast Tag only lane at Kingsway Tunnel Toll Plaza and if you’ve got a Class 1 tag, you can use any auto lane at either tunnel - no need to scrabble for change.
  • 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.

Visit the Mersey Tunnel’s website to apply for your Fast Tag or call 0151 330 1702 for an application form.
