How does it work?
Tollcard purchased from the website
Tollcards purchased directly from the website are already active. No further operation is required. After buying the customer can immediately start to use it.
Tollcard purchased in post office
To activate the balance of the tollcard, the customer must send a text message (1) to the number +351 922 29 89 89 with the details of the license plate and the card CODE hidden under the grey area of the card (e.g.: CTTCD *1111AA* A0OA0AAO0). To see the card CODE, the customer must scratch the hidden area of the card. The customer will receive a confirmation text message with the balance associated to the given vehicle license plate number.
The customer will receive, at no extra cost, a text message alert when the balance of the card is insufficient for toll payment.
One can also access www.tollcard.pt to get the balance.
For activating multiple cards for one license plate you can include up to 4 CODEs in the same text message (i.e: CTTCD *1111AA* CODE_card1 CODE_card2 CODE_card3 CODE_card4).
