The Express Pass is a prize given out to teams that arrive first on certain pre-determined legs early in the race, often the first leg. The Express Pass can then be used to completely skip any task that the team does not wish to complete. It can be used on a Detour, Roadblock, or additional Route Info task, but cannot be used on a Fast Forward. It can be used to skip the second Detour task if a team has been U-Turned.

It is almost always given on the first leg of the race, but may be given on the second or third leg if other prizes exist for the first leg.

In most editions, it is stated that the Express Pass cannot be used past the 8th leg of the race. However, in some editions this limitation is not stated. It is unknown if it exists for these versions. More specifically, there is no limit in The Amazing Race Vietnam, and the limit in The Amazing Race Australia 3 is only leg 5, due to the shortened race length.

In The Amazing Race 22, a second Express Pass was introduced. This second Pass cannot be used by the team that arrived first and won it. It instead must be given to another team before the third leg of the race ends, later extended to the fifth leg. This was featured again in The Amazing Race Canada, the fifth version of The Amazing Race (Latin America) and The Amazing Race Australia 3.

During The Amazing Race 25, the Express Pass was hidden during the Second leg, and teams would have to take the time to search for it while racing. This practice was repeated in The Amazing Race Canada 3 with the double Express Pass.

In The Amazing Race 27, the rules of the pass were changed again. Only one pass was given out as a prize on the first leg, with the winning team being permitted to use it before the end of the 5th leg. However, after the pass is used, it must then be given to another team. This second team will only have an opportunity to use it on the following leg.

In The Amazing Race 29, the Express Pass was randomly given out to one team as a reward during the Starting Line Task. This was repeated on The Amazing Race China 4.

The Amazing Race Canada 5 featured three Express Passes, all of which were hidden on the Roadblock site on Leg 2 and could be picked up by any team that found them. Teams were still limited to only using one of the Express Passes for themselves, and had to give away any others to other teams.
