How to pay the congestion tax?
The cost to circulate in the congestion zone (congestion charge zone) is £11.50 per day, regardless of the number of times you enter / get out of the congestion zone during the day.
You can reduce this cost to £1 per day if you subscribe to the automatic payment system Auto Pay.
Payment can be made by:
- phone at +44 34 3222 2222
- SMS to +44 20 7649 9123
- Internet at the London transport site (TfL - Transport for London)
You can pay:
- up to 90 days in advance
- the day of circulation
- the next day before midnight: with a surcharge of £14
If you are driving in the congestion zone on a Friday, you will have until Monday evening to pay (always with a surcharge of £14 from Friday evening midnight).
In the event of non-payment, a fine (Penalty Charge Notice - PCN) will be sent to you.
In case of error in entering your license plate or country of registration, a fine (PCN) may also be sent to you.
