Vehicles which drive within a clearly defined zone of central London between the hours of 07:00-22:00, every day, except Christmas Day (25 December) have to pay a daily Congestion Charge. The daily charge is GBP 15.00 if you pay in advance or on the same day, or GBP 17.50 by midnight of the third charging day after travel.
The Congestion Charge can be purchased in several ways. These include, by telephone through the call centre on 0343 222 2222 (international callers +44 343 222 2222), online at www.cclondon.com, by SMS text messaging (if registered with TfL) or by post.
One can also use an automated method of payment for the Congestion Charge.
