We are driving from Navaree Florida to Key West, then to Georgia and North Carolina. Do we need a Sun Pass or how does this work?

I live in TX.
Called them by landline.
Got the sunpass by mail.
Still have it as we plan to return someday.

No need to get a SunPass. Some of the toll booths are manned- there you just pay cash. Others, they take a picture of your license plate and just mail you a bill.The SunPass does give you a little discount and for the manned toll booths, you can by pass the booth, but for a one time trip just getting a bill in the mail is much easier, and you don't end up with money on your account that you will not use again.

Read all about it. Used to be able to pick them up at Publix. Saves time and money.

In 2010 we rode our motorcycle/tent trailer to Key West and absolutely disliked stopping for tolls every few miles and the toll takers were rude. In 2016 we went back to Florida and found we could drive on the toll roads and the cameras would record our license plate and send us a bill. We really liked doing it that way.

The letter you get with the bill is really nice, they thank you for visiting ect, then by the way you owe us $xx.xx. We thought it was pretty funny.

You will regret traveling on Florida toll roads without having a SunPass. I believe they cost $10 and the convenience is well worth it. Many of the toll roads no longer have manned toll booths - which means you get the bill in the mail - plus I'm sure some administrative fee.

I like the convenience of the SunPass. The amount you have to keep is small compared to others and they don't have any fees when the pass isn't used for a long time.
Just wish they would install better cameras/sensors so you don't have to slow down to 25MPH at some toll stations.[emoticon]

Indeed.

Florida is considering joining the EZ Pass network but seems to be having trouble getting it done.

Call or visit the Sun Pass website to keep up on the current situation.

I have enough trouble keeping track of my one ez-pass. Does anyone know what the surcharge is if you don’t have one and they send an invoice? Their web site doesn’t make that very obvious.
