So can I bring my EZ Pass to Orlando and use it there, or are they still not using EZ Pass? If not, what is the best way to deal with tolls? Thanks!

Just a half dozen threads down from this one is a thread entitled Help with Florida Tolls, where you'll find among the 32 posts all the info you seek and more.
No EZ Pass functionality (yet) in FL; they have their own incompatible Sun Pass. Apparently all the other many eastern states with EZ Pass somehow have it wrong.:rolleyes:

Theo is right. www.sunpass.com. You can have it mailed to you (mine took 4 days) or buy it in Florida. Just mount it on your car and you are good to go. If you are renting, it is a little more complicated. You must add the rental info (plate #, make and model) to your account so that your sunpass is recognized. You do that by internet or 800#.

I leave Friday - - with my new sunpass!!! Good luck...

It is a small nuisance, but the portable sunpass device works very well. We have had ours for 2-3 years now, and have used it in a number of rentals and our own cars when visiting FL. It easily attaches to/detaches from the windshield. You have to update your sunpass account only when you are using a rental, as mentioned before, but that is easy also. And that update includes an end date for the rental, so only one access is needed.

We have EZpass and are looking forward to the changeover, but we like how the sunpass is portable.

When we're in Orlando, we easily just avoid using the toll roads as there are plenty of alternative routes. Are you sure you will need to travel on the toll roads?

No need to pay tolls

We take our GPS with us & use it in the rental car. Just say 'yes' on the page where it asks you if you want to avoid toll roads. I would think it works the same if you use the rental car company's GPS. You will undoubtedly get sent through areas with red lights & stop signs but ... If you have the time to spare, save the money.

Just to clarify, you only need to add your rental car information to your SunPass account so if your transponder is not recognized. The system will first look to charge your account instead of billing back to the rental car agency. Even if you don't register your rental car in the SunPass system, it will still charge tolls to your transponder when you go through a toll. So you don't have to register your SunPass, but it is best to do so. The registration is just a fail safe.

Customers with SunPass Portable transponders may use their transponders in their rental vehicles. It is strongly recommended that SunPass customers access their online SunPass accounts or contact the SunPass Customer Service Center to add the rental vehicle subscription to their account for the rental period....
