Toll Rates

The M50 motorway features a barrier-free tolling point operated by eFlow. Vehicles pass beneath an overhead camera gantry which records license plate information and assigns the appropriate toll charge. This toll charge is dependent on:

  • Vehicle type (e.g. motor car, heavy goods vehicle)
  • Whether the driver’s vehicle is registered with an eFlow Tag or Video account, any other tag provider, or is unregistered.

Why not register for an eFlow Tag or Video account? You’ll spend up to €1.00 less and you’ll avoid the 8:00pm next-day payment deadline. Find out more about the perks of an eFlow account – including the offers and discounts of the eFlow rewardcard.

Penalties for Non-Payment

If you’re not registered with eFlow or any other tag provider, use of the M50 toll road requires you to make your toll payment before 8:00pm the following day. If you do not make payment by this time, an extra penalty charge of €3.00 will be incurred.

If you haven’t paid the toll and the penalty within a further 14 days, an additional late penalty of €41.00 will be incurred.

Failure to pay this outstanding amount after a further 56 days will result in an additional late penalty charge of €102.50. If you have still not paid the amount due, legal proceedings may be initiated.
