I have heard of this before. Hopefully you have your receipt which you can photograph and send to them as proof.

I had an occasion a few years ago where the guy in Apple green put one digit wrong on my receipt. I got him to change it and he wasn't happy. After that I always checked and kept my receipts.
We now have an online account.

I just got a toll charge request today for a journey in April which I knew I had paid, unfortunately I hadn’t the receipt but I rang up and the guy confirmed it had been paid. Hady

Be careful, check with the M50 toll people, that the charge is from them. since it refers to a bill that should have been paid in May, I would have expected them to be looking for a lot more than 6 euro now, I would think there should be penalties on that at this stage.

Any chance you have the wrong reg? I gave the car instead of the van one time; phoned them up and sorted it once they saw the other reg paid but didn’t use it.

Yes I got one last year, I think it was about one month after I passed through the toll.I paid for a return trip and was assured I would be covered,and I was told by the shop to keep the receipt just in case,Needless to say I also got a 6 euro fine,which included a photograph of the van,I also paid it so as to avoid any hassle .

Best just to pay online or with the M50 quick pay app in future as you will always have proof then.

That is exactly why I advised Robert to get in touch with the M50 people before making any payment, I'm sure just like you I would love to be proved wrong and they are only looking for 6 euro even if he has paid it.

I got fed up trying to remember to pay this by 8pm the next day, so in 2016 I set up a Video account on the eflow.ie website. We used the M50 twice in the last 10 days and I have just checked and both trips are showing on my statement at €2.60 each. Eflow take the balance payment once a month from my credit card. Also, unlike the tag scheme there is no charge for having this account. I just wish I could pay all the other motorway tolls with the same system but apparently the M50 is unique in this type of payment.

Please be aware that toll tags on camper-vans are potentially a pain in the butt.
I had one and had to give it up because all the tolls except the M50 kept changing my class to commercial 3.5tonne.
They do not have number plate recognition so it does not matter how your van is registered.
If it looks even a bit like a van, rather than obviously a coach-built motor-home, then they change the fee after you have passed - so even if the screen at the toll says the correct 1.90 your bill will show 3.60.

Now I pay cash at all tolls but have a video account with eflow for the M50 and that's works well.

When I challenged this changing of class with the Government department I was told: "The lower fee for camper-vans and motor homes is voluntary by the toll operators, so there was nothing they could or would do to stop them changing bills retrospectively.
At that point I thought: too much fuss from us MH types and the toll operators might just scrap the 1.90 charge and make it 3.60.

It's not much bother to pay cash since we can't use the fast lanes anyway due to height restrictions.

I’ve a little Renault megavan commercial...... charged the high rate as its commercial !....

All our vehicles are registered with www.eflow.ie and it automatically charges us at the end of the month, and at a discounted rate for being registered. Our motorhome is 3500kg and 3.2m high and always charged as a car.
The www.eflow.ie website is good as you can just forget about paying the m50 toll and it’s debited at the end of the month after you receive an invoice by email.

Reccomended service, it never leaves you with unpaid tolls and anyone can register, with an Irish/NI/UK/European registrated vehicle.

Also, if you're ever in a bit of bother after forgetting to pay a toll, ring them up and ask if they can waive the penalties if you open an account (video or tag), the answer is almost always yes.
