South Africa's first interactive toll fees calculator from Drive South Africa
Before you take a road trip, there is a lot of preparation that needs to take place. Your budget, which plays a big role in how your road trip turns out, is one of the steps in that preparation process. To assist South African road users on the budget side, we created the Toll Roads Cost Calculator (also known as toll fees calculator). This online tool lets you automatically work out the estimated toll plaza costs for your road trip from point A to point B on South Africa’s national toll roads.
The first of its kind – South African interactive toll road fees calculator
How the toll fees calculator works
- Type in your point of departure
- Type in your destination
- Select your vehicle type
- Click on “Calculate toll fees”
- Get your toll road cost results (and you will see on your right-hand side your route will also be highlighted in the Google Map)
- Note: Toll fees differ according to the vehicle class
