Tolls and rental cars

We’re renting a car from Hertz, and have been calling them to get the exact scoop on how tolls are collected- no definitive answer yet. We’re concerned due to some bad experiences of others who have rec’d toll bills in the many hundreds of dollars…$900, and not sure why.
I think Hertz uses Plate Pass. How is this different from Auto Pass? Do we have a choice, and does it matter? Are they under the same umbrella, or competitive?
We continue to research, but any help would be SO appreciated!

Never heard of Plate pass, Autopass is the payment system used for road and ferry tolls in Norway. https://www.autopass.no/en/ A car rented in Norway will most likely come with some kind of toll tag.

Thank you. I think Plate Pass might be a toll collection system specific to Hertz.

I rented a car last August and it had the toll reader, whatever it was called, built in. It automatically registered tolls from roads and ferries. When I turned the car in, they emailed me the next day with the list of tolls I was charged. It was a very smooth, seamless process. Just drive onto the ferry - didn’t have to stop and figure out how to pay. My car was from Hertz and was a hybrid Toyota that also got great gas mileage!
