The PASSANGO Toll Badge / On-Board-Unit (OBU), which already covers France, Spain, Portugal and the Belgian Liefkenshoek tunnel, will be accepted in Belgium from the beginning of 2017, as part of the new kilometer-based VIAPASS toll system. By the end of 2016, the badge will also be useable in Austria and on the bridges linking Denmark to Sweden.
TOTAL thus facilitates its customers’ toll accounting by centralizing all toll payments made in Europe and by simplifying in particular the recovery of VAT. The Toll Badge / OBU also provides access to a geo-localization service for the trucks of a fleet and to numerous associated alerts.
The extension of PASSANGO to Belgium was made possible by the inscription of TOTAL in the register of Providers of the European Electronic Toll Service (EETS) on February 25, 2016. TOTAL thus became the first European oil company to be registered as an EETS Provider and is one of the rare players capable of ensuring the acceptance of its interoperable Toll Badge / OBU in all of Europe as the various national markets join the system.
