Quick Start Tag

Get a Tag - save time and money!


Tags are the M6toll's electronic pre-payment system. They're the easiest, most efficient way to pay, allowing you to pass through a dedicated tag lane, usually without the need to stop, saving money on every trip.

You benefit from a 5% discount per trip. For regular users the saving soon mounts up.

A Tag is a small self contained electronic device which fixes to your windscreen.
