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.

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.

If your Telepass device has been stolen or if you lost it, you can notify us via Telepass App, through your Reserved Area on the site, calling 840 043 043, or contacting a Punto Blu.

Please note that the block of the Telepass device must be confirmed within 30 days, by sending a report to the Public Security authority or declaration in lieu of affidavit (this only in case of loss, not for theft).

If the block is not confirmed, the Telepass device will be reactivated and can therefore be used.

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.

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.

To retrieve the return label, access your Reserved Area, then in the "Contract" section select the "old" device. Inside the "Title Detail" you will find copy of the pre-filled label, download it and print it in A4 format.

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).

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.
