You keep them in the cup holder and grab when needed rather than fumbling for bills. Just a personal preference.

That does seem like a good idea. Thanks!

Obviously my mistake. It seemed from my pov that other people suggested ways of avoiding tolls and related expenses.

It's not the toll money that would be an issue. It's just paying 12 dollars a day for an easy pass or a big fine from the rental car company if you have to pay the tolls by plate. That's why I was suggesting that the OP should just not use the tolls to go in the tunnel.

That's the way I took it. I know it will be $13/day for the transponder (the $12/day is the car rental fee) apparently just to get in and out of Boston and wouldn't need it any other time. That's $65 for the transponder plus the toll fees of course. Or if I don't get the transponder the way I took it from the girl's mutterings at the rental place, it would be a $75 dollar fine every time going through a toll booth without the transponder. So even if I think I figured out how to avoid toll roads if for some reason end up getting in a jam and have to go through one anyway, there's $75. And if I get charged again going through a booth leaving the toll road there's $150...
