How to pay your Toyota car bill

Making an auto loan or lease payment to Toyota Financial Services is really convenient thanks to the number of options available. Let’s take a look at the ways you can pay. 

Online

One of the easiest ways to pay your Toyota car bill is online. All you need to do is to
create a TFS account
and provide your banking information to make monthly payments or enroll in
AutoCheque
—Toyota’s version of autopay
You can also sign up for Toyota’s myTFS app and link your TFS account with your app profile to pay your bill right through the app. 

By phone

Toyota Financial Services has an automated phone payment system that’s available 24/7—just call (800) 874-8822 to get started. If you’d rather speak to an agent when you pay your bill over the phone,
contact the customer service line
. Live agents are available Monday through Friday from 8 am to 5 pm local time. 

By mail

If you prefer to send your car payment by mail, you can! Just mail a check and your payment stub to the address provided on your statement. Or, you can send your payment to the following locations:

Western Union Quick Collect

You can make a cash or debit card payment using Western Union Quick Collect (WUQC). Access their services by calling 1-800-325-6000, visiting
westernunion.com
, or going in person to a Western Union location (often located in grocery stores or check cashing facilities). 
After you make a payment to Toyota, you’ll receive a 10-digit Money Transfer Control Number, which will help you confirm that the payment has been delivered. 
In order to complete the transaction, Western Union will ask that you provide the following:
  • Toyota Financial Services account number
  • Account type (i.e. whether you’re leasing or financing your vehicle)
Like most third-party services, WUQC will charge an additional fee for processing the payment.

CheckFreePay 

Another way to make a cash payment to Toyota is CheckFreePay—a third-party service that is similar to Western Union. You can find a location near you at
checkfreepay.com
. You’ll need to bring your billing statement and a valid photo ID, plus a little extra cash to cover the service fee. 

Can I make my Toyota payments with a credit card? 

No. Technically, the only way to pay your Toyota bill using a line of credit is to request a cash advance—which involves more fees and should only be used as a last-resort payment option

Is there a grace period for Toyota car payments?

Toyota Financial Services does have grace periods for car payments, but the length varies by contract. You’ll want to review your TFS contract for details on your specific grace period agreement. 

How much are Toyota payments?

Toyota is one of the most popular auto brands in the US thanks to its longstanding reputation for affordable and well-made vehicles. If you want to finance a new Toyota, your monthly payments will be lower than average—but considering that the average car payment in 2022 was in the $700 range, you’ll want to make sure financing something brand new or close to it is a financial responsibility you’re prepared to take on before you sign any contracts.
Take a look at the table below for more information about the average monthly
loan payments
for some of Toyota’s most popular 2022 and 2023 models. Keep in mind that these figures are for the base trim of each model after putting 10% down on a 72-month loan with an estimated annual percentage rate (APR) of 4.9%

Remember, the exact monthly loan amount will depend on not just the model and model year of your Toyota, but also how much money you put toward a down payment, the
trade-in value
of your old car, your credit score (which affects your
APR
), and the loan term length. 
Your monthly payment will be lower if you choose a
72-month term
over an 84-month one, but your APR is typically lower when financing a brand-new vehicle versus a used one.
