London Congestion Charge

I drove into London yesterday and stayed at the Tower Bridge Hotel and then today drove back to Bournemouth.

As all the drivers seemed to be on suicide missions I didn't clock the congestion charge signs but assume I went into the zone at some point.

Looking at the website where I pay I don't know whether I need to pay for Friday & Saturday or just Friday. Is there any way I can find out how much I owe as it seems to be set up that you can just hand over as much money without it saying there was no need to pay or you need to pay some more.

So much more civilised down in Bournemouth, except on Sundays when the old dears are out.

Cheers

Mark

Congestion charge only applies Monday to Friday during the daytime. As the others said, it'll just be Friday you need to shell out to Uncle Ken for.

And you can pay for Friday CC on Monday (at the higher rate £10) as Monday is the first next working day.

oops

I know its a bit late but I am in Malaysia at the moment and everything is a little slower here.

not sure you needed to pay, depends on which road/route you used into london

conjestion charge starts about 100yards west of tower bridge everything east of that point including the hotel is outside the zone

and what a damn fine zone it is...
