Tolls are an inevitable and expensive part of life for many Sydney drivers. But there is a way to claw back some of your hard earned cash, you’ll just have to act quickly.

The toll relief rebate allows NSW motorists to claim a 40 per cent rebate for money spent on tolls for both the 2022-23 and 2023-24 financial years. This is on top of the $60 weekly toll cap introduced earlier this year.

Eligible drivers can claim up to $750 if they spent more than $375 on tolls during the 2022-23 financial year. The claims deadline is June 30.



Drivers can also claim up to $802 if they spent more than $402 on tolls in the current 2023-24 financial year, with the claims deadline not until June 30, 2025.

The rebates can definitely be worth your while. Sydney driver Hannah shared she claimed back $280 on tolls for last year and $177 for the current financial year. Another driver Llani said she got hundreds back in minutes.

“It took three minutes and I just got $560 back from doing nothing other than driving through tolls, which you do literally every second of every day when you live in Sydney,” she said.

NSW motorists can claim the toll rebate through Service NSW. You can claim once a quarter and up to one year after the financial year ends.

You’ll need to link your toll account to your MyServiceNSW account. Once you do this, you’ll also be able to check your toll spent and see when you can claim future rebates.

Once your claim has been approved, you can expect to receive your payment within 10 to 15 business days.

NSW motorists can claim a rebate of up to $340 if they spend more than $60 a week on tolls.

This applies for toll spend from January 1, 2024. For example, if you spent $100 in one week on tolls, you’d be eligible for a rebate of $40.

You can make a claim through Service NSW.

You can claim for toll each quarter quarter, with claims opening from April 9, July 9, October 9 and January 9. Any quarterly rebates you don't claim will accrue until the claim period closes on June 30, 2025.
