Fast travel does cost you credits. Initially, they’ll set you back 10,000 credits per travel. However, you’ll be able to get discounts by running over these purple fast travel boards that you can find all over the map.
For every one Fast Travel Board smashed, it will reduce the cost of fast traveling by 200 credits.
