When entering a toll highway you have to pass a barrier (mostly).
There you take from the slot machine a ticket which you have to keep carefully until you reach your exit.
There you should join into an exit lane, which is not exclusively dedicated for “Telepass” owners.
There you hand over your ticket to the cashier and pay the indicated amount cash or feed the ticket to the automatic sytem, paying the amount with a “Viacard” (from travell agencies or motorway restaurants in Italy), coins/banknotes or credit card. The “Viacard” is very practical.!
