The fixed ERP fee will be deducted from your Autopass Card when your car exits Singapore.

You can also choose to rent a temporary In-vehicle Unit (IU) at the Tuas or Woodlands Checkpoint to pay your ERP charges, or permanently install an IU in your car by visiting any authorised IU Service Centre. To use the IU, you will need to insert a stored-value card:
