London Congestion Charge
From February 17th 2003 Congestion Charging began to operate in the heart of London UK. The congestion charging zone is bounded by the 'Inner Ring Road' linking Euston Road, Pentonville Road, Tower Bridge, Elephant & Castle, Vauxhall Bridge Road, Park Lane and Marylebone Road. The 'Inner Ring Road' provides a route around the charging zone, and charges apply only to vehicles travelling inside it. Not those travelling on it. Drivers are warned on roads leading into the zone, that they are approaching the charging zone.
Everyone (except those exempt or discounted) driving or parking a vehicle (including a hire car)on public roads between 7.00am and 6.30pm Monday to Friday, in the congestion charging zone has to pay a daily charge of £5.00 to the Transport for London group. This payment allows you to enter, drive around and leave the congestion charging zone as many times as you wish that day. Payment can be made via the TFL call centre, via the web www.cclondon.com , in retail outlets offering the PayPoint service or in post offices. The charge of £5 can be paid at any time up to 10pm on the day of entry into the zone. Between 10pm and midnight a charge can be paid however the charge increases to £10.
For further information, please ask at the rental location or refer to the Transport for London website.
