When you’re driving from place to place, depending on the distance and the route you take, you might encounter tolls. For some, they try their best to avoid paying tolls if possible and try to look for routes that are free, while others don’t mind paying, but it will depend on the cost.

If you’re trying to figure out if a route with a toll is worth the cost, then Google Maps could help with that. It seems that according to a message that was sent to members of the Google Maps preview program, one of the upcoming features that Google will be testing is the displaying of toll prices in the maps.

What this means is that when you’re driving and there’s a toll on the way, it will show you how much that toll will cost. Then it will be up to you to decide if that amount is worth paying, or if you’d rather find an alternative route that’s free. It might be a while before the feature debuts because based on the message, Google is apparently surveying the best way to implement the feature.

It is possible that the company might port it over from Waze, which is also owned by Google and exists alongside Google Maps as an alternative navigation app. Either way, it sounds like it will be a pretty useful feature and we can’t wait for its implementation, whenever that is.
