What is the Congestion Charge in London?

In central London, the city has imposed a congestion charge scheme which is payable daily, for any day that a vehicle moves within the zone between 07:00 and 22:00, except Christmas day (25/12). No charge is payable for vehicles, if they are parked for a full day(s) within the zone.

If you collect your car from within the zone , Enterprise will add your first day’s congestion charge fee of £15 automatically to your Rental Agreement for convenience. All further days are payable by the renter. New rates are £15 in advanced or on the same day and £17.50 if paid by the next day before midnight. 

For vehicles rented outside the zone or for additional days within the zone, the renter can prepay the daily charge either via phone at 0845 9001234 or online at www.cclondon.com.

Note: The City of London assesses a penalty for non-payment, which is billed to Enterprise. In order to staff and process these penalties, Enterprise charges an administrative fee for handling payment of the penalty.
