NSW Toll Relief

NSW Toll Relief scheme

The new NSW Toll Relief scheme is the NSW Government’s new scheme which is designed to reduce the cost of living for Sydney motorists.

Toll Relief Rebate 2023

The new Toll Rebate Scheme for Toll expenditure between 1 July 2022 and 30 June 2023.

Starting from the 2022-23 financial year, eligible motorists who spend more than $375 a year on tolls, will receive a 40% rebate. Motorists can claim once a quarter, up to $750 for the financial year.

Under the new relief scheme, you have until June 30 2024 to claim for any tolls spent in the 2023-2024 financial year. The rebates would provide a boost to household budgets, while the government expects half a million drivers across New South Wales to be eligible for the new rebate scheme.

Toll Relief 2022

For Toll expenses between 1 July 2021 and 30 June 2022, you can still claim your free or half-price registration. It’s available until 30 June 2023 if you meet the eligibility requirements.

Drivers who have spent $1406 or more on Sydney’s toll roads in the previous financial year 20/21 (an average of $27 a week) are eligible for free vehicle registration.

NSW motorists who’ve spent $843 or more during the previous financial year 20/21 (an average of $16 a week), will be eligible for half-price registration.

The Toll Relief scheme does not include tolls paid:

  • on vehicles registered for any use other than private
  • on the M5 South-West by drivers opted into the M5 South-West Cashback Scheme
