You don’t have to register with merseyflow but registering is the only way to get cheaper journeys across the river in Halton.

Anyone, whatever type of vehicle they drive, can save up to 10% on the standard toll charge by registering for a Select plan and paying a £5 one-off fee for each vehicle they register.

Pre-pay sticker accounts can be set up so they are automatically topped up from your bank account in advance – ensuring you never forget to pay.

You can also register more than one vehicle to your account, so if you’re running a business with lots of vehicles it will be easier to keep track of your total activity levels and costs. You will need to pay a £5 fee for each vehicle you register.

For more information, please see our FAQs for business users.

Pre-pay or monthly pass?
