Motorway toll refund, how Autostrade cashback works

Here comes the reimbursement of the motorway toll in case of code with the new cashback of Motorways for Italy, which comes after the fine of the Antitrust combined with ASPI precisely for missing refunds. The cashback is operational from September 15, 2021 and is accessible thanks to the app of Free To X, free on device stores Android And IOS.

How the reimbursement of the motorway toll works

Thanks to new digital technologies, the reimbursement provided for by the cashback takes place automatically and commensurate with the actual travel times. You are entitled to reimbursement of the motorway toll after exceeding a certain limit of the normal travel times due to a construction site.

The cashbask is triggered only in the event of slowdowns caused by road works

It can already be recognized for short itineraries, starting from 15 minutes late, allowing access to reimbursements from 25% to 100% of the toll, based on the actual travel time and on the length of the route taken.

For example, if the average travel time for commuters is 20 minutes, the refund is triggered after 15 minutes of delay, on a 4-hour journey with a 20-minute delay there is no refund. The quarter of an hour is therefore the minimum limit.

The measurement of the delay is based on the average travel times, that is 100 km for cars And 70 km for heavy vehicles. The refund that can be obtained concerns the entire toll of the route, therefore not only the section affected by the works.
