Congestion charge

The Congestion Charge is a daily charge for driving a vehicle within the charging zone between 7:00 and 18:00, Monday to Friday, excluding Public Holidays and between Christmas Day and New Year’s Day inclusive.
The charge aims to reduce high traffic flow in the central area and raise investment funds for London's transport system.

The easiest way to pay the charge is by registering for Congestion Charge Auto Pay. There are a range of exemptions and discounts available to certain vehicles and individuals. You only need to pay once, no matter how many times you drive in and out of the Congestion Charge zone on the same day. You can pay in advance or on the day of travel.
If you don't pay by midnight on the charging day after you drove in the zone, you'll get a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN).
