Change of e-tags on Peloponnese highway

Drivers who want to beat the long lines at toll booths when they head out to the Peloponnese will need to get hold of new electronic tags as of next week, as the electronic toll collection system run by the Greek National Road Fund, also known as TEO Pass, will stop operating. Motorists on Monday will be able to return their TEO Pass, which will no longer work at the Elefsina, Corinth Canal, Zevgolatio and Rio toll posts, as this route is being taken over by the private company Olympia Odos, which will now collect the tolls. Anyone handing in their tag will have the 25-euro deposit returned plus any unused credit. Drivers can get the new tag at any of Olympia Odos’s offices or by calling 22960.95555. The tags used on the Attiki Odos will also work at these tollgates. Motorists who use the TEO Pass on journeys to Thessaloniki will continue to be able to do so.
