As it turns out, there's now an upside to forking out heaps of money on road tolls, thanks to a new initiative by the NSW Government.

It's expected almost 100,000 of the state's drivers will benefit from the new Toll Relief program, which offers reduced rego costs for those spending big on toll fares. If you're handing over $25 or more for tolls each week, or $1,300 over the financial year, you'll now save up to $729 when renewing your vehicle registration.

To access the reduced rego, and find out how much you're eligible for, next time you're doing your rego renewal just add in your licence plate number and toll account. The rego discounts depend on the size of your car — which coincides with rego fees costing more, the heavier the car — with a full list of savings and sizes listed on the NSW Government website.

As an added bonus, the government's backdating the toll spend from July 1, 2017, to June 30, 2018, which means you can still reap the benefits of all that money you spent last year.

"So far 938 free regos have been claimed and $397,000 has been given back to drivers, with the average driver saving $423," said Minister for Finance, Services and Property Victor Dominello in statement.
