(PRWEB UK) 3 March 2013
The toll fee for the Mersey tunnels is set to increase its prices for motorists who pay by cash. Drivers will see a 10p rise for cars and a 40p surplus for larger vehicles, taking the price for a car to £1.60 and £1.90, respectively. Those who choose to use the longer term regular use option, Fast Tag, and to pay by Direct Debit, will not be effected by the price hikes as Chairman Liam Robinson explained, “The decision to make no change to Fast Tag charges means that many motorists will feel no adverse impact at all.”
The move follows recent news regarding the benefits of paying by Direct Debit in a bid to save money and aid consumers with the management of their personal finance.
