Last updated on Apr 15, 2024 · 1 minute

The web toll calculator is a user-friendly tool available on our website TollGuru, allowing you to manually input your trip details to calculate toll and fuel costs.

Benefits of using the TollGuru web calculator:

  • User-friendly Interface: Easy-to-use interface for quick trip planning.
  • Manual Input: Allows users to input trip details manually, including vehicle type, start, and endpoints, to calculate toll costs.
  • Pre-trip Planning: Suited for pre-trip planning for individuals or small fleets, providing toll costs before the journey begins.

On the other hand, the toll API is a programmable interface that enables seamless integration of toll calculations into your fleet management systems. It automates toll cost calculations based on specific routes and vehicle details, providing accurate real-time and historical toll costs.

Benefits of using the toll API for large fleets:

  • Automation: The toll API automates toll calculations, saving time and effort compared to manual input with the web toll calculator.
  • Integration: Integrate the toll API directly into your fleet management systems, streamlining toll cost management within your existing workflow. 
  • Customization: Customize toll calculations based on your fleet’s specific needs, including route preferences, vehicle types, and toll discounts.
  • Scalability: The toll API is scalable and can handle large volumes of toll calculations, making it ideal for managing toll costs for extensive fleets efficiently.
  • Multiple endpoints: Offers multiple endpoints like Origin, Destination & Waypoint, Route from Polyline, and TollTally – GPS Tracks to Toll, providing flexibility to choose the endpoint that best suits your business needs.

For your large fleet, the toll API offers enhanced automation, integration, and customization capabilities, providing a seamless and efficient solution for toll cost management.
