Guidelines for Using Your ETC Card Across Multiple Vehicles

Adding a Secondary Vehicle

You can add a secondary vehicle to your account and use the same ETC card for both vehicles. The ETC card is compatible with any vehicle, including taxis and rental cars. If you're in a vehicle without an installed ETC unit, you can manually charge your ETC card by handing the toll ticket to the teller.

Obtaining a Second ETC Card

To acquire a second ETC card for your additional vehicle:

  • Create a new account using a different email address (other information can remain the same).

Linking Accounts for Secondary Vehicles

When adding a secondary vehicle to your account, we will ensure a seamless integration. After creating the second account, please notify us via email. We will then link the two accounts together to streamline the process. Upon submitting the required paperwork for your secondary vehicle, we will promptly adjust the deposit requirements. Please note that each account maintains its own payment plan.

  • Submit the necessary paperwork (Shaken certificate, ETC Setup document) for your secondary vehicle.
  • The deposit for the second ETC card will be reduced to ¥20,000 from ¥40,000.
  • Each account maintains its own payment plan, but linked accounts simplify deposit requirements for additional ETC cards.

Proper Setup and Registration

  • Ensure that your ETC unit is correctly registered to your vehicle.
  • NEXCO policy requires that ETC units match the license plate and vehicle information from the shaken certificate.
  • Verify that the ETC unit data aligns with the vehicle's registration when driving through toll gates.

Looking Ahead

  • As NEXCO implements more stringent security standards, adherence to proper registration becomes increasingly important.
  • By 2030, all toll gates in Japan will be exclusively ETC-only, emphasizing the necessity for accurate vehicle setup.

Keep these guidelines in mind to effectively utilize your ETC card across different vehicles. If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to ask!
