USING THE BRIDGE
The Humber Bridge is a toll bridge. With the exception of motorcycles and approved concessions, vehicles must pay a toll every time they cross.
Vehicles are charged a toll according to their classification. Drivers with a valid HumberTag installed will receive a 10% discount on their crossings.
There are two ways to cross the Humber Bridge. Customers who have a HumberTag account/ approved concessions/motorcycles are able to use the Taglane (Open Road Toll). The HumberTag is a pre-paid account that enables account holders to travel through the toll plaza without stopping. Payments are deducted from their account automatically each time they travel across the Bridge.
Customers without a HumberTag should stop at one of the manned tollbooths instead.
HOW TO PAY
Quick and easy contact-free payments can be made with a contactless card. Chip and pin is also available.
If you have a HumberTAG this can also be used at the toll booths.
THE HUMBER BRIDGE NO LONGER ACCEPTS CASH PAYMENTS.
UNPAID TOLL CHARGES
IF YOU CROSS THE HUMBER BRIDGE USING THE TOLL BOOTH OR TAG LANE (OPEN ROAD TOLL) WITHOUT PAYING YOU MUST PAY FOR YOUR CROSSING WITHIN 72 HOURS, OR AN ADMIN CHARGE OF £15 WILL BE ADDED. THIS IS PER CROSSING.
Crossings are uploaded to the payment portal on Humbertag.com the following working day from 1pm (Mon – Fri, excluding bank holidays). The 72 hours to pay only begins once the crossing has been uploaded.
If you have received an unpaid toll notification and wish to dispute this, please contact us.
We offer free crossings to those who are eligible under certain criteria. The criteria and requirements are listed on our Toll Concessions page.
Vehicles carrying an abnormal load (defined as over 44 tonnes and/or over 3.05m (10’0”) wide), must pay an additional charge.
There is a strict process for vehicles with abnormal loads to follow in order to cross the Humber bridge. Please click here for more information.
These are issued to drivers in use of emergencies and may be subject to administration charges.
Please see Deferred Payment ‘leaflet’ below.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
We stopped taking cash in 2021.
There are a variety of accepted electronic payment methods which you can use at the Toll Booths including using a debit or credit card ( chip & pin or contactless), Apple/Google/Samsung Pay via a mobile or smart device, and the HumberTag. Alternatively, you can also use Concessionary Vouchers where applicable.
The vast majority of Humber Bridge users make payments via card or using a HumberTag. This reflects a prevailing trend of moving towards a cashless society as a whole.
In recent months we have also announced plans to change the existing Toll system to a Free Flow Toll system with a new website and more ways for customers to pay the toll for crossing the bridge. This will also include an option for those customers who prefer not to pay online. We will be providing further updates on this project in due course on our website and via social media.
If someone really doesn’t have the means to pay, we would encourage them to ring our Customer Services team (01482 647161) and we will work with them to find the best way to take payment.
