Google Maps will soon help you plan your journey better by adding toll amounts along your route. So you may select the one that is less expensive or has no tolls.
The functionality is now accessible for iOS and Android users in the United States, India, Japan, and Indonesia, with support for other countries on the way. Previously, Google Maps would only display whether a route had tolls.

The company obtained toll costs from local governments for roughly 2,000 roadways in those nations. It’s not much in comparison to the extensive network of roads in these areas, but it’s a start.

“You will have the choice inside settings to show toll charges with or without a toll pass–as the price varies by geography and payment type.”
The Google Maps toggle to display toll costs is enabled by default, but you may disable it by going to Settings> Navigation> See Toll Prices.
