I did that thanks. I even was able to put the hotels that we had reserved and that will dictate where we drive each day.

You could also go to the web site of each state you're going through and check for tolls.

I think that's where I'm not sure if you checked each route. You have to plot the route that you want, and see if any tolls show up on that route. You have to actually read the turn by turn directions that Google Maps delivers, before you know if there are tolls. If you plot a route and it doesn't show partial tolls or toll road, then you shouldn't see any tolls.

If you drive I-10 to Las Cruces, then north to Albuquerque on the 25, then hook up with I-40, you should have a toll-free drive. There is only one little climb out of ABQ, then it's just plains until you get to the Appalachians. Done it. The rest is more moderate climb and descent.

Even if you take the 10 all the way to the 20 and continue to the 85 (or whatever gets you to your final destination), you shouldn't have any tolls. But that's a longer route.

Sorry if I'm telling you what you already know, or not understanding your question.

It doesn't matter. Whether it's I-40 or I-10,20,85 or 95, there are no tolls. Period. Not even a toll bridge.

Thanks for the feedback everyone. I think my confusion was that I did not realize that if there is a toll it shows on the directions.

Most maps show toll roads in green.

I've done similar traveling to that trip multiple ways and don't remember any tolls. There are very few places like the NJ Turnpike and parts of CA in middle America.

Here's a list of toll roads by state that you can compare to your itinerary:List of toll roads in the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

You may also want to compare your plans to the following for highways and bridges that have tolls since this site also gives the cost: Tolls in USA You'll note the high number in PA and the fact that FL, NJ and NY require whole pages to themselves.
