I don't know. Not even though about how to cancel it.
Have you checked their web site or called them?

Yes I called today. They said that you can close your account and all you have to do is send in the transponder.
I calculate that it will cost me around $130 in tolls and the 5% savings is not worth the effort or worry about any delays.
I have plenty of time.

In Florida if you don't use the Sunpass, they just bill you for the toll plus a five dollar "handling fee." They photograph your tag and send the bill to the address of record. If you don't pay in 30 days the late fees start piling up.

Is the $5 handling fee every time you use the tolls?

I am not sure if it is monthly or per toll. I only had to use the photo system for one toll and the five dollar fee was on the bill.

According to my fading memory you still can pay cash using the cash lines. If you process through sunpass lines without a transponder you are issued a bill to the address the vehicle is registered to plus a "handling fee". This applies per violation.

No more cash lanes anywhere in FL.
just Sunpass and cameras.

What a ripoff! Go through a $2 toll and get a $7 bill. That's plain ole highway robbery.

Well, the "stick-on" transponder is "free" you just need to "pre-load" it with 25 bucks and an auto-refill credit card.

I wouldn't go back to FL without it.

Herk that depends on where in Florida you drive.
Here is a full understanding about Florida Toll Raods. Very simple...
If you are a visitor like my I may get a bill sent to my home but if I'm not there to see it or pay it I get fined if I'm on the road for a few months. LOL
I don;t want to buy a Sunpass in Florida for a 10 day visit when I will only be on these toll road going and leaving. What a joke.

Florida Traveler Information
Paying Tolls

Tips for paying toll
When approaching toll plazas along Florida's Turnpike, be alert for some congestion and be prepared to stop. Consider the following tips to ensure smooth travels along Florida's Turnpike:
  • Never get out of your vehicle at any toll plaza.
  • If you are in a SunPass-Only lane never stop. Vehicles behind you are not expecting a vehicle to stop in an automated lane.
  • Blue highway signs, located about a quarter of a mile in advance of the plaza, list toll prices for two-axle (passenger) vehicles. Overhead signs above the lane show the amount and the fee also is posted electronically at the gate.
  • At exact change lanes, wait for the green light; if the light says red, check the coin return on the collection basket. Damaged and foreign coins will be returned. As long as you have deposited the correct number of coins, even if the light stays red, continue through the lane. Customers are never expected to pay more than the posted amount. You will not receive a violation in the mail.
  • Toll plazas along the Mainline feature at least one lane staffed by an attendant 24 hours per day. If you require change, receipts or even directions, look for an overhead green sign. If you have exact change, proceed toward the lanes featuring overhead blue signs.
  • Most toll plazas on Florida's Turnpike contain special lanes marked SunPass-Only. These lanes are reserved for vehicles equipped with SunPass, the state of Florida's method of electronic toll collection. SunPass-Only lanes are identified by white and yellow signs in advance of, and eventually over the SunPass-Only lanes. A motorist who enters a SunPass Only lane, without a SunPass, may be subject to a toll violation warning or a uniform traffic citation.
    • If you feel you have passed through a SunPass-Only lane by mistake, contact the SunPass operations center directly at 888-865-5352.
    • If you are interested in becoming a SunPass customer please call 888-865-5352 or go to www.sunpass.com
  • Not all exit and entrance ramp toll plazas are staffed, so motorists should be prepared to have exact change at these interchanges, especially after 7 p.m. or on weekends. Toll collection baskets do not make change and drivers should not attempt to insert paper currency in the machinery. Quarters are preferred, but coin baskets accept any combination of nickels, dimes and quarters. You may purchase a roll of quarters from an attendant at any toll plaza along the Mainline. The collection baskets do not accept credit or debit cards and inserting them in the machine may result in the loss of or damage to the card.
  • While the northern and southern sections of Florida's Turnpike employ the coin system of toll collection, the rural area in between uses the ticket system. Motorists traveling between Three Lakes in Osceola County and Lantana in Palm Beach County will receive an electronically-created toll card showing their point of origin and time they traveled through the lane. This card is not a SunPass and you shouldn't use it to travel through SunPass-only lanes, as you'll receive a violation notice. SunPass customers may proceed through the cash/ticket lanes if marked with a SunPass logo, but must stop and wait for the gate to raise.
  • Beginning February 19, 2011, all Turnpike tolls are collected electronically between the U.S. 1 (Exit 1) and County Line Road (Exit 47) interchanges in Miami-Dade County, and cash tolls are not accepted. Motorists will use either SunPass or TOLL‑BY‑PLATE, and everyone will enjoy the benefit of paying their toll without having to stop.

    SunPass is Florida’s prepaid electronic toll program. For customers without SunPass, the alternative is TOLL-BY-PLATE, a collection system that takes a photo of a vehicle’s license plate as it travels under tolling equipment installed overhead and mails a bill for the tolls incurred over a 30-day period, plus a $2.50 administrative charge, to the registered owner of the vehicle. For additional information about all-electronic tolling in Miami-Dade County, click here.
