If you’re heading to London then you should be aware of the London Congestion Charge, which is a fee to be paid upfront by anyone wanting to travel by car through the capital’s streets. So if you’re picking up your Easirent hire car from our London Kings Cross depot, then you should be aware of the different rules that apply before you hit the road. Here at Easirent, we have compiled a condensed list of London Congestion Charge information, just to make your travels a little easier.
1. The London Congestion charge was the first charge of its kind to be introduced anywhere in the world, as a way of reducing the flow of traffic on the city’s roads.
2. Applicable between 07:00 and 22:00 every day, the congestion charge is a daily charge of £15.00 GBP.
