There are over 500 ENI petrol stations in Italy that are also active as Telepass Point.
While you are refueling your car, you can now also order a Telepass receiver and purchase accessories.
For example, I bought a second Telepass holder for a second car, because a receiver can normally be used for 2 vehicles. Took only 1 minute then the yellow plastic bracket was already glued to the windshield.
A quick solution, otherwise I would have had to order the bracket online.
On the ENI website you can activate the filter "Telepass" to show a list of all petrol stations with this service.

When you exit the Italian motorway you will reach the toll gate - the so-called "casello".
If you have a Telepass receiver then you can take the yellow lane "TELEPASS" (reservated TELEPASS track) or a lane with the symbol "T".
In this track there is no queue because the drivers do not have to stop to buy (full automatic payment without staff, you can drive through the toll gate with a speed up to 30 km / h).
When you drive through the toll gate you will hear a high tone from the receiver that confirms the successful payment.
The traffic light gets green, the barrier opens and you can already speed up again.
