Google Maps Feature To Tell Toll Amount
While almost all the toll plazas in India have become digital which requires a FASTag, there are some remote locations where the process is still manual. For such cases, you could calculate the total amount beforehand and have the cash ready to save you a lot of time. In addition to that, you could also have the required amount in the FASTag account in case you are travelling on a new route depending on what the app suggests. Google Maps also has a feature in the settings where you could choose the route that avoids all tolls. If you have time on your hands and want to save some money, you could follow that route, if available.
