Telepass Device

Everything you need to know

In this section you can find the answers to all your questions about the Telepass device for motorway tolls: What it is, what it's for, how to position it in a car or on a motorcycle, and what the beeping sounds you hear indicate. Here you can find all the information related to costs, timing and replacement methods in case of loss, theft, return and shipment of the device.

You can request the replacement of your Telepass device at one of our Punto Blu centers located along the highway network. Click here to consult map and timetables.

As an alternative, you can request the replacement directly through the Telepass App or Telepass Pay X App, and choose collection at the affiliated Pick-up Point or request home delivery.

For best performance, place your Telepass device at the top-center of the windshield. If your vehicle has a screened windshield, we recommend that you consult your car's user manual.

The Telepass device can also be used on motorcycles with an engine displacement equal to or greater than 150 cc. In this case, when crossing a toll booth, you need to transit paying close attention to the road surface signs (yellow motorcycle symbol on the ground).

It is a small device that you can simply place on the windshield of your car or on your motorcycle and that allows you to pay tolls passing through the dedicated Telepass gates and without the need to stop at the booth, and debits your bank/postal account or credit card.

Besides tolls, with Telepass you can also pay for parking, Area C Milan Congestion Charge, and Strait of Messina ferries: all at no additional cost.

The Telepass device is equipped with an acoustic signaling system that emits continuous or intermittent sounds, with low or high tones, to let users know if their Telepass device is working properly.

A high-pitched tone indicates that transit was successfully completed.

A low-pitched tone indicates that an error occurred during transit, in which case you should check the activity record directly from your Telepass App or from the Reserved Area of the site. In the event of another low-pitched tone during a subsequent transit, contact Punto Blu to verify that your device is working properly.

Three high-pitched tones indicate that the battery is low and therefore you need to contact Punto Blu to request the replacement of the Telepass device.

Depending on the motorcycle model, the Telepass device can be placed in one of the following ways:

  • in the glovebox (if made of plastic), using the same anchoring technique for placement on vehicles, that is by positioning the device with the adhesive velcro side facing upwards;
  • on the handlebar, using a special support available at authorized dealers;
  • in a bag with a suitable pocket and anchored on the tank.

In any case, you need to place the Telepass device with the adhesive side facing forward to allow correct functioning.

Telepass devices can be returned at Punto Blu centers or by registered shipping to this address: Telepass SpA Customer Care c. p. 2310 succ.le 39 50123 Firenze
