Experience Our Services

Driving in Japan can be stressful. Save money and time with a 60-day free trial of our ETC services.

Customers Still Responsible For Toll Usage

During the first 2 months of the trial, you are only responsible for the toll charges incurred while using the ETC card. It is important to note that customers are still required to pay for their monthly toll usage throughout the trial period.

The 60-day trial waives the ¥1,200 monthly ETC card fee, which is part of our Pay-As-You-Go plan. This fee will not be charged during the first 2 months of the trial. Please refer to the graphic above, which outlines the specific month the ¥1,200 fee will begin, based on when you receive your ETC card.

In addition to the toll charges, customers are also responsible for any processing fees associated with their ETC usage. For a detailed breakdown of the various fees, please visit our processing fess. Pricing Page

To summarize, the 60-day trial exclusively waives the ¥1,200 monthly ETC card fee, while customers remain responsible for their toll usage and any applicable processing fees.

After the Trial Period

On the third billing cycle, you will be automatically switched to the Pay-As-You-Go plan. See pricing details:
