Given the extreme diversity in prizing schemes in use worldwide - don't hold your breath. Pricing can vary upon vehicletype, number of axes, number of occupants, season, day of the week, time, traffic conditions on other roads.

Too subtle, maybe?

Make it red?

Yes, and have it blink and make it bigger. I agree with you that it is easily overseen. And don't listen to the young folks, by the time they need glasses they will be happy to have a big red blinking toll-sign too.

I've not read the whole thread, so apologies if this has been requested previously!

After a journey which involved a suggested route along the M6 toll, I enabled the avoid toll option to get a more 'pocket friendly' route, only to 'forget' to disable it on a journey where the expected route would have been the Dartford Crossing. The suggested route on that trip was via the Blackwall Tunnel, thus doing what it should, but not an ideal route for me!

I would like to see an 'avoid toll roads' option on a per journey basis. Some toll roads I prefer to avoid (ie M6 toll) whereas others I don't mind as the alternative route is a little convoluted (ie Dartford Crossing or Humber Bridge!)

Perhaps a popup that only appears if the global avoid is unselected and the route suggested then contains a toll road?

We have experienced first-hand the down-side of addressing this issue by making toll penalties cumulative: Eventually, the penalty builds up to the point where it is "better" to violate a turn restriction or directionality.

IMO, if you're already on a toll road when you start to navigate, and you have "avoid tolls" set, Waze can leave it to the driver to find a legal way off the toll system. Scenario: user has "avoid tolls" set, but on a particular trip selects an alternate route that includes a toll road. While on the toll road, Waze recalculates for whatever reason. Does the driver want Waze to keep trying to route him off of a toll road that he voluntarily entered?

This is another case where Waze should assume a certain amount of competence on the part of the driver. Exits on toll roads are usually clearly marked.

But he should be navigated away, ASAP...

In my experience, exits from toll roads are usually clearly marked, and there aren't many opportunities to get lost or go off-track (e.g., they usually don't even let you reverse direction). If you're on a toll road and you navigate somewhere with "Avoid Tolls" enabled, I think it's fine if Waze lets you choose with the steering wheel whether to leave the toll road or not. Maybe you took this one toll road for a reason, and don't want Waze telling you to get off at every exit.

Hi,

Greece covered over 90% of toll roads. Please enable avoid tolls option for driving directions in Greece.

Many thanks!
