Allow declaring Toll Roads and the option to not navigate through them
Waze wants to route me through a toll road every day and can't seem to find an alternate route until I actually drive it. I want to be able to avoid Toll roads, which means tolls roads need to be able to be declared in the editor.
Countries in which we have already enabled the feature on the client are:
The United Kingdom

Latvia?? There are no toll roads in Latvia, but drivers do have to pay to enter the resort city of Jurmala. Instead of Latvia please consider about adding Poland and Austria.
This should be a per-trip option, not a global option. Some trips the toll road is worth it, sometimes it's a waste of money.
As it was already said, it would be great to have an option 'Avoid toll roads if they are no faster than X min/ OR X percent of travelling time'

You could do this 1 of 2 ways
1 options always avoid toll roads yes or no
2 ask every time this route has toll roads avoid yes or no
somtimes the are 2 or 3 companies for toll road
add the ability to choose which toll road you want to go through and which you dot want
exp: in israel , road 6 -> i want , and fastlane -> no
Yeah i got a ticket from waze taking me on a toll road. really annoying
I live in New York City, and would love to be able to tell Waze to only give me toll road options if they are X minutes faster. For instance, I'll pay the $5 toll if it will save me 30 minutes, but to save just 5 minutes, I'd rather take the non-toll route.
OR, even better, I'd love to be able to manually mark and save my favorite routes between work and home, and have Waze compare those saved routes each time I am commuting so that I can see whether the toll option is worth it!

Apparently this is now working in Italy, Switzerland and Austria.
However, it would be great adding an option to declare the sticker/vignette validity (country scope and time period) and avoid toll roads based on that
When we click on routes for the address selected, indicating on the to with the word "toll" can help us to choose which route we want rather than choosing a route and clicking on turns and finding there are tolls and again going back to routes and so on. Thanks for an excellent waze

It works in South Africa too.

At one point I had the option to avoid toll road - in the profile, now I can't anymore ... why? I live in Dubai

Malaysia has been added to the list where this is supported, yay!
Andrew, the "Auto-learn routes..." option is misnamed. This setting does not affect the route chosen. It only enables the ability for Waze to suggest a destination for you when you start up the app, i.e., "Good Morning! Heading to work?"

Andrew, please post this information on the forum http://world.waze.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=6 providing permalinks to the toll area on the M2 road that fails so we can try to help you.
While I have the "Avoid tolls" option on my Android phone in Australia, Waze blithely ignores it, and goes to incredible lengths to try to route me onto the M2 tollroad *every* morning!
And it doesn't seem to "learn my routes" either, as I take the same alternative non-toll route every day!
It will be great to know the amount af the toll in order to choose one road or an other!

The feature is working and gets enabled when the italian editors guarantee that a big percentage of the tolls were added to the italian map. It's up to the italian editors to do their work, not Waze. Push your community ;)
.....and Italy???? (we pay a lot of taxes and this option will be verrrrrrry helpful! Thanks
Woohoo! USA client can now avoid toll roads! Thanks Waze!
Thanks for the post Sascha! I hadn't seen that. As soon as Waze HQ is confident that all the toll roads in your country are marked correctly, then they'll release an update to the app that has "avoid toll road" or some such option!
