■About flat-rate and non-flat-rate expressways
1．You use the ETC card outside the designated area.
2．You use the ETC card on an expressway not operated by NEXCO-Central, such as those of the Metropolitan Expressway Company Limited and the Nagoya Expressway Public Corporation.
3．You use the ETC card on an expressway outside of the period for which you applied.
When you drive through the ETC lane at a tollgate, you will see a display of the toll charges that apply from where you got on to where you are about to get off.
If your trip was within the designated area, you will not be charged this toll.
If the barrier does not let you through at the tollgate, use the intercom to call an attendant. The attendant will assist you.
If part of an expressway is closed due to an accident or disaster, you will be unable to travel through that section.
Exit the expressway at last interchange before the closed section and take a detour on local roads until you are able to get back on the expressway.
In such cases, be sure to use the ETC card you were given by the car rental company.
