What is the M50 toll?
The M50 is a 40km motorway around Dublin that connects all the major inter-urban routes to Dublin. It is Irelands busiest motorway and carries over 150,000 vehicles per day
The tolling point is located between Junction 6 and Junction 7 on the M50 and is clearly marked with purple ‘Toll’ signs overhead.
The M50 Motorway has a barrier-free toll. This means that there are no traditional toll booths.
Instead of a conventional barrier toll plaza, drivers pass beneath overhead cameras, which use advanced vehicle recognition technology to record number plates.
If you use the M50 Motorway and do not pass the tolling point at Junction 6 and Junction 7, there is no charge. The toll charge only relates to the section of the M50 between Junction 6 and Junction 7.
The toll for passing the M50 must be paid by 8pm the following day.
Car Rental Information
Before you cross the M50 toll point in a rental car, you must contact your rental company to find out if your rental agreement covers the payment of toll charges.
Some companies will include toll charges in your bill, others will require you to pay toll charges yourself.
If you are required to pay the toll charge yourself, it can be done before you travel.
If you do not pay in advance of travelling, you must pay after you pass the M50 toll point, before the 8pm next day payment deadline.
If you are required to pay toll charges yourself, any queries on your bill such as late payment penalties should be directed to your car rental company and not to eFlow.
