EZ pass

I know that many toll roads and bridges in Europe require a toll payment. Is there a transEurope EZ pass that covers all these tolls?

Surely SOMEBODY on this board knows how electronic tolls are paid in Europe. (Some tollways in the US and Canada do not have toll booths.) Will a chip-enabled credit card suffice in all situations?

No help for Europe, but in Australia you can pay for tolls as follows:

Create an account - online or telephone
Register a credit card for all fees
Register the plate number to your pass account- you can register a rental car to your account
When you drive thrugh a toll, they flash the plate and debit your account. You pay a bit more for the plate match process
You can set a 'start time' and 'stop time' to the minute. I set the Hertz plate to expire 1 hrs before my flight out of SYD-

In australia, especially around Sydney, there are toll roads with no toll booths- you simply cannot pay with cash, or any kind of chipped card....

GL in the quest for EU info....
