No. You are not required to have a transponder or participate in a rental car company’s toll program. Cash is accepted on some expressways in Florida. It is important to remember many on- and off-ramp toll plazas have no attendants and require exact change in coins. Some tollways can be cashless (Miami and Tampa areas).
A solution for cash and cashless lanes is to Sign Up and use PayTollo.
You can pay cash on some expressways. On cashless lanes an image of the license plate will be captured on camera and an invoice for the toll will be sent to the rental car company. The rental car company may pay the toll invoice on your behalf and may charge you extra fees for their time and service. Check your rental agreement about fees for unpaid tolls if you do not use PayTollo.

For visitors, tourists and the infrequent local driver who uses the tollway, this can be an issue since there are no toll attendants or coin toll baskets . Miami and Tampa tollways are cashless or AET (All Electronic Tolling). Using PayTollo is a great solution for Florida AET tollways.
