3.1 Applying for an account

You can apply for an account by:

  • completing an electronic application at govia.com.au, or
  • calling our Customer Contact Centre and giving us the relevant details.

3.2 Acceptance of your application

You apply over the phone
When you verbally accept this Agreement

3.3 Agreements for businesses

If the account is for a business, the person who accepts or signs these terms and conditions on behalf of the business represents that they are authorised to enter into this Agreement on behalf of the business.

3.4 When your account starts

Your account will start once we receive a successful payment from you.  You may add a vehicle to your account and nominate a start date for your account up to seven days prior to when your application is received.  Any tolls, fees or charges you incur during this period will be charged to your account, except for any tolls, fees or charges incurred on some compatible roads. Visit govia.com.au for a list of compatible roads which are excluded.

You agree that this Agreement will apply to you on and from the date that your account starts, which may be a date in the past (at your request). 

3.5 Linking vehicles to your account

You must give us the details of each vehicle that you want to link to your account. We will then link those vehicles to your account.  You may have multiple linked vehicles on your account. 

You can enter a future start date for linking a particular vehicle to your account. You can also nominate a start date for linking a particular vehicle to your account which is up to seven days prior to the date you make the application to us to link the vehicle.   Any tolls, fees or charges you incur from that nominated start date will be charged to your account (except for any tolls, fees or charges incurred on some compatible roads when the start date is before the date you make the application to link the vehicle). Visit govia.com.au for a list of compatible roads which are excluded.

By linking a vehicle to your account, you confirm that you are the registered vehicle owner or that you have the permission of the registered vehicle owner to link the vehicle to your account.  For all linked vehicles, you agree that you also consent, or have the consent of the registered vehicle owner, to us disclosing information to you about that vehicle’s use of our roads.

For each vehicle that is linked to your account, you must inform us whether you want a tag for that linked vehicle. You may also choose not to have a tag. In this case, if a linked vehicle travels on our roads and a tag is not detected, a video matching fee will be payable for each toll point on that trip in addition to the tolls. Also see section 6.1.

Provided your account is not suspended, you may add or remove linked vehicles on your account or request an additional tag.  At any time, you may report a tag lost or stolen, or return a tag to us.  When a tag is returned to us it will be removed from your account. 

If you lose a tag and notify us of the lost tag, we will mark it lost so that you will not continue be charged. We will also charge the tag non-return fee and will refund the fee if the tag is found again. The tag will not be removed from the account unless requested by you, or upon closure of the account.

3.6 Correct details

You must ensure that all the details on your account are correct at all times. In particular, you must ensure that the details of the linked vehicles on your account are correct. If the details for your linked vehicles recorded on our system are wrong, then you are responsible for updating those details either by:

  • correcting those details yourself by logging onto your account at govia.com.au, or
  • asking us to correct those details by calling our Customer Contact Centre.

If you sell or transfer a linked vehicle, you are responsible for updating all the details on your account, and also removing any tag installed in that linked vehicle. You remain responsible for all tolls, fees and charges incurred by that linked vehicle or tag, until you request it to be removed from your account.

3.7 Incorrect details

If we don’t have the correct details for a linked vehicle (especially the licence plate details), then we may not be able to identify the vehicle as linked to your account when it travels on our roads, and we will not be able to charge your account. If this occurs, unless an arrangement to pay that toll is made within three days of travel on our roads, then the registered owner of the vehicle will receive a toll invoice from us (including a video matching fee and a toll invoice fee).

You must also ensure that all payments you make to us correctly identify you and your account.

If you make payments to us without correctly identifying yourself and the account the money is to be applied against, we will retain those funds in an unidentified monies account for a period of at least six months. If you do not contact us and properly identify your funds within that six month period, we may retain those funds and are not obliged to return them to you.

3.8 Confirming your identity

You should record your account number and make sure you remember (and keep secure) your login details to access your account electronically at govia.com.au.

If you call us about your account, we will confirm your identity by asking you some questions.

3.9 Statements

You may view and download electronic statements by logging onto your account. Your statement shows all tolls, fees and charges that were processed to your account during the statement period.

You can access, free of charge, your previous statements online for the last 18 months.  You can choose either monthly or quarterly statements.  We will send an email to notify you of a statement if your statement delivery method is online. 

You may ask us to mail or email you a copy of your statement.

We will charge you a requested statement fee for each statement we provide to you at your request.

3.10 Account balance

You can view your account balance by logging onto your account.  You can also ask for your balance by calling our Customer Contact Centre.

4 Paying for your tolls

4.1 How we charge

For travel on our roads we will charge tolls based on the class of vehicle (which depends on the type of vehicle and its purpose of use), for each toll point that the vehicle passes.  We may contact the relevant road authority in the State that any linked vehicle is registered to confirm the class of your vehicle.

For travel on compatible roads, tolls, fees and charges will be determined by the operator of the compatible road.

See section 6.1 for more details.

4.2 Applying tolls, fees and charges when there is more than one valid tolling product

A linked vehicle may be associated with more than one valid tolling product (eg, an account and a road pass) when it travels on our roads or a compatible road. We apply the tolls, fees and charges in this order:

  1. to a pre-paid or post-paid go via account or an account issued by a compatible road operator, if we detect a tag linked to one of those accounts which is valid at the time of travel
  2. to a pass or an account in the order listed below, if we don’t detect a tag at the time of travel or are unable to charge the account associated with a detected tag:
    1. go via toll credit pass
    2. go via road pass
    3. pre-paid or post-paid go via account.

    If there are multiple passes linked to the vehicle at the time of travel, the pass with the earliest expiry date will be charged.

    If there are multiple accounts linked to the vehicle at the time of travel, the account to which the vehicle was most recently linked will be charged.

  3. to a valid pass or account with a compatible road operator.

4.3 Topping up your account

You must keep your account balance positive at all times. You can top up your account using one of these payment options. We may charge the applicable and additional fees as set out in this table.

4.4 Low balance warning amount

If you do not have an active automatic direct debit payment option, you will receive a low balance warning when your account balance drops to or below the low balance warning amount.  

If your account reaches the low balance warning amount, we will transmit 1 beep + 2 short beeps to indicate that your balance is low.  If your account remains in low balance, shortly after we will send you a notification using the contact details you have provided to us.  If you don’t make a payment and you continue to incur tolls and fees, your account may be suspended.  

4.5 Automatic direct debit payment option

If you choose an automatic direct debit payment option, you agree to the additional terms set out in the application form for direct debit payments.  You must also nominate the following levels:

  • top-up trigger level amount – when your account balance drops to this amount (or below) this will trigger the direct debit to occur, and
  • top-up amount – this is the amount deducted from your bank account or credit card via automatic direct debit. You must choose a top-up amount which is the same or higher than the minimum top-up amount which is currently listed at govia.com.au.

If you have authorised payment by direct debit from a bank account or credit card and that direct debit is unsuccessful, then:

  • we will transmit 1 beep + 2 short beeps when we detect a tag at a toll point on our roads 
  • we will send you a payment failure notification using the details you have provided 
  • we may charge a dishonour fee to your account
  • you may provide us with a new direct debit authority, and
  • you may top up your account using a manual payment option. If you do this you will be charged a manual top-up fee (see section 4.3).

See section 8.1 for more details about what happens if your account goes into negative as a result of a direct debit failure.

4.6 All other payment options

When making a manual top-up payment, you must choose a top-up amount which is the same or higher than the minimum top-up amount which is currently listed at govia.com.au.

If you make a manual top-up payment using a cheque, and that cheque is dishonoured, we may charge a dishonour fee to your account.

4.7 Set off

We may set off or deduct from any positive account balance or positive pass balance which you have with us, any amounts due, or which may become due, to us from you at any time and for any reason whatsoever.

4.8 Incorrect charges

If we incorrectly charge a toll or a fee to your account for a trip on our roads, we will refund that toll or fee to you within a reasonable time after:

  • you notify us of the error and we confirm it was an incorrect toll or fee, or
  • we become aware of the error.

4.9 Positive balance limits

The maximum positive balance you can have on your account is $4,999.

5 Our tags

5.1 We own the tags

Each tag we provide to you remains the property of Transurban Queensland.

We may ask you to return a tag at any time.  All tags must be returned prior to closure of your account.

If you do not return a tag within seven business days of being requested to do so, you may be charged a tag non-return fee.  This fee will also apply if the tag is returned to us and it is damaged or cannot be re-used, other than as a result of normal wear and tear.

5.2 Tag beeps on our roads

We send messages about your account through beeps from the tag. The beeps will be heard when a tag correctly installed passes through a toll point on one of our roads. It’s important for you to understand what the beeps mean so you can effectively manage your account.

Beeps What it means Your action
1 beep We have successfully charged the toll to your account.
None.
3 beeps
(1 beep plus 2 short beeps)
If you have not set up an automatic top-up, this means your account balance has dropped to or below the low balance warning amount.

If you have set up an automatic top-up, this means that your last payment has failed. 
If you have not set up an automatic top-up, it’s time to manually top up your account.  

If you have set up an automatic top-up, your last payment has failed and you need to contact us to update your details or to set up an alternative form of payment.
4 beeps Your account balance is negative. Your account may be suspended.
Contact us immediately. Also see section 8.1.
No beep The tag may be faulty or incorrectly installed. 
Check the tag placement in your vehicle. If the tag is not installed as per our instructions (see section 5.3), please install it correctly and see if this corrects the problem. If it does not, or you have any questions, please contact us.

Please refer to section 6 regarding fees associated with travel where a tag is not detected.

 

We do not operate the compatible roads, and therefore any beeps heard or not heard when travelling on a compatible road may not be consistent with the meanings set out above.

5.3 Using tags

If we provide you with a tag you must:

  • install and use the tag in accordance with our instructions. We will provide you with instructions when we send the tag to you, or you can download them at govia.com.au
  • take reasonable care of the tag and keep it safe so it doesn’t get lost, stolen, damaged, spoiled or destroyed, and
  • only use the tag in a vehicle of the same class as the vehicle for which you requested that tag. If you install the tag in a different class of vehicle, then we may charge the tolls, fees and charges that apply to that different class of vehicle.

5.4 Lost or stolen tags

If a tag is lost or stolen, you must:

  • notify us immediately, and
  • if we ask you, provide us with a copy of the police report or other evidence.

From when you notify us that a tag is lost or stolen, we won’t hold you responsible for any tolls, fees or charges that might result from someone else using that tag.  However, we may charge a tag non-return fee to your account. We will send you a replacement tag if you ask us.

5.5 Damaged or destroyed tags

If a tag is damaged, you must return it to us.  When you return a tag that is damaged or cannot be re-used, other than as a result of normal wear and tear, section 5.1 will apply.

If a tag is destroyed, then you must:

  • notify us immediately, and
  • if we ask you, provide us with evidence.

5.6 Faulty tags

  • if you think that a tag is faulty, then you must contact us immediately
  • if we ask you to return the tag to us and you request a replacement tag, we will send you a replacement tag.

5.7 Motorcycles 

Motorcycles are not required to carry a tag.  We will not charge a video matching fee if a motorcycle is linked to your account and travels on our roads.  However, operators of compatible roads may charge a video matching fee if the motorcycle travels on a compatible road.

5.8 Multiple tags in a linked vehicle

If you carry more than one tag in a linked vehicle, we will do our best to only charge the relevant toll once when that linked vehicle passes through a toll point. However, we are not obliged to refund your account for multiple toll charges.

6 Using our roads

6.1 Tolls, fees and charges

If we detect a tag which is linked to your account on our roads, we will charge the relevant tolls and fees for the linked vehicle associated with that tag to your account.

If we don’t detect a tag when a linked vehicle travels on our roads (eg, if a tag was not requested for that linked vehicle, the tag is not in the linked vehicle or the tag has not been correctly installed) we will charge these tolls and fees to your account:

  • the toll amount, and
  • the video matching fee.

However, we won’t charge a video matching fee if:

  • the linked vehicle is a motorcycle, or
  • the tag was faulty and you notified us and returned the tag to us promptly.
If we charge a video matching fee, but you contact us and we confirm that there was a tag correctly installed at the time of travel, we will refund the video matching fee.

The tolls, fees and charges that apply to our roads and toll products may change from time to time. The toll amount depends on the class of the vehicle that travels on our roads. We may offer discounts, promotions and other special offers from time to time. These offers are subject to change and may be altered or discontinued at our discretion.

To find out the current tolls, fees and charges, you can:

  • visit govia.com.au
  • call our Customer Contact Centre on 13 33 31
  • contact us on any of the other methods set out in section 16.

6.2 Refunds

If we need to pay a refund to you under this Agreement we may pay it to the card or bank account which you used to make the original transaction.  

If you request closure of your account under clause 8.2, we will refund you in accordance with clause 8.3.3.

7 Travelling on compatible roads

7.1 Conditions that apply to compatible roads

We have an agreement with certain operators of compatible roads to charge your account with the relevant tolls, fees and charges that apply for use of those compatible roads when a tag or a linked vehicle is detected on those compatible roads.

7.2 How we process the tolls, fees and charges

When a tag or a linked vehicle is detected on a compatible road, the operator may notify us of the tolls, fees and charges that apply to that trip. Additional fees and charges may apply if you do not have a tag or it is incorrectly installed or faulty.

If your account has a positive balance we pay the operator on your behalf and charge the relevant tolls, fees and charges to your account as soon as we have received all the relevant information related to your trip.

However, if your account is suspended or if the operator is unable to identify your linked vehicle then:

  • we may reject the tolls, fees and charges notified by the compatible road operator, and
  • as a result, the compatible road operator may send the registered owner of the detected vehicle an invoice or request for payment (which may include additional fees or charges).

If you have a query about tolls, fees or charges applied to your account as a result of use of a compatible road, you should contact the operator of that compatible road.

7.3 Liability

Apart from any obligations we may have under the Australian Consumer Law, Transurban Queensland and the Transurban Queensland Group are not liable to you, any person who drives a linked vehicle or any other road user or any person claiming through you in relation to any loss or damage you suffer as a result of:

  • us rejecting the toll, fees and charges notified to us by a compatible road operator, in accordance with these terms and conditions, or
  • use of the compatible road.

8 Suspending and closing your account

8.1 When your account may be suspended

If at any time your account does not have a positive balance, we may suspend your account.  We will try to notify you via the contact details you have provided to us if your account is at risk of being suspended, and again when your account is actually suspended.  We will reinstate your account once you return your account to a positive balance. 

We may also suspend your account if you breach this Agreement, or as set out in clause 8.4.  In these circumstances, we will notify you when your account is reinstated.   Alternatively, your account may be closed in accordance with clause 8.2 or clause 8.4.

A suspension of your account means that your rights under this Agreement are temporarily suspended. 

While your account is suspended you will need to make another arrangement for travel on our roads.  If another arrangement has not been made within three days of any travel on our roads, then we may:

  • send you a toll invoice in respect of that trip (including a toll invoice fee and video matching fee), or
  • send the registered owner of the vehicle a toll invoice in respect of that trip (including a toll invoice fee and video matching fee).

Also see section 7.2 in relation to travel on compatible roads.

8.2 When your account may be closed

Reason What it means
Negative balance on your account 
We may close your account if you have a negative balance.   Before closing your account, we will notify you via the contact details you have provided to us that your account has a negative balance.  If your account has a negative balance after our reasonable attempt to notify you, then we may attempt to recover the debt from you through a debt collection agency (with or without closing your account) and we may close your account.
You ask us to close your account
At any time, you may ask us to close your account by: 
  • notifying us in writing
  • calling our Customer Contact Centre.
Your account is inactive
We may close your account if no tolls, fees or charges have been charged to your account for a period of two years or more.  Before closing your account, we will notify you that we are considering closing your account for this reason. We may agree to keep your account open at your request. If we are unable to contact you, or you do not respond to our notice, then we will proceed to close your account.
Your account is being used for fraudulent purposes
As set out in clause 8.4.
Breach of this Agreement
We may close your account if you breach this Agreement.

8.3 Closing your account

8.3.1 Tags must be returned

You must return any tags prior to requesting your account to be closed.  If you are unable to return tags because they are lost or stolen, or if your tag is damaged, you must notify us when you request that your account is closed and we may charge a tag non-return fee to your account for each tag.  We will close your account once outstanding fees have been paid. 

8.3.2 Transferring balances

Before we close your account we may transfer any positive balance on this account to any other accounts or passes you may have with us to partially or entirely clear their negative balances, or we may transfer the positive balance of any other accounts or passes you may have with us to this account to partially or entirely clear any negative balance on this account. If we do this, we will try to notify you via the contact details you have provided to us.

8.3.3 Positive balance

If your account has a positive balance (after any outstanding tolls, fees and charges have been applied and after we have exercised any rights to transfer that balance to any of your other accounts or passes), then approximately 30 days after we close it we will pay the balance as follows (and in this order):

  • we will refund the balance to the card or bank account which you used to make the original transaction or the card or bank account that is listed on your account. 
  • we will mail a cheque for the balance to the address listed on your account - payable to the account holder, or
  • if we can’t reasonably contact you, we will hold the balance for you for a period of two years, after which the balance will be considered unclaimed money in accordance with our obligations at law.

8.3.4 Negative balance

If your account has a negative balance (after any outstanding tolls, fees and charges have been applied and after we have exercised any rights to transfer the balances of any of your other accounts or passes to this account), we will contact you and you must pay the outstanding balance. If you don’t pay the outstanding balance within seven business days of our request, then we may attempt to recover the debt from you through a debt collection agency.

8.4 Fraud

We may suspend or close your account if we reasonably believe your account or any card linked to your account or use of your account:

  • is using our system to determine the validity of a credit card;
  • poses a risk to us or any third party, including the integrity, security or reliability of us or our system;
  • was obtained fraudulently or using false details; or
  • is, or may be, being used for fraudulent, illegal, dishonest or malicious purposes.

We may suspend or close your account if you do not cooperate with any investigation in relation to your account regarding suspected fraudulent, illegal, dishonest or malicious behaviour, or if you refuse to confirm your identity in response to a request made by us in connection with any suspected fraudulent, illegal, dishonest or malicious behaviour.

For the purposes of this Agreement, fraudulent, illegal, dishonest or malicious behaviour means dishonest activity which may cause financial loss to any persons or entity including theft of money or other property whether or not deception is used at the time.
