He clarified that with this provision, the savings in time of crossing will be significantly reduced since the time allocated for charging with credit or debit cards is up to six times higher than that made with TAG or cash, modalities that will continue to be accepted.

IAVE prepaid

The most efficient way to travel on Mexico’s highways is Tag IAVE, the electronic means of payment that allows you to make the crossing of booths quickly and easily.

IAVE prepaid is the addable device that works through recharges, that is, before making your trip you pay the amount you want to your tag.
