Auto Pay

Choose the system appropriate for the number of vehicles you or your business usually drive within the Congestion Charge zone.

We'll automatically record the number of charging days a vehicle travels within the charging zone each month and bill you each month.

CC Auto Pay

Benefits of CC Auto Pay

  • Never forget to pay the charge again
  • A reduced daily charge
  • Protection from receiving Penalty Charge Notices as long as your vehicle is registered and your Auto Pay account is active
  • Register up to five vehicles

You will need to:

  • Be at least 18 years old
  • Enter either a payment card or complete a Direct Debit mandate as part of your application
  • Tell us which vehicles you want to register

See the Congestion Charge terms and conditions.

Your Auto Pay may be suspended if we are unable to collect a payment. Check regularly to make sure that your payment card has not expired (where this applies) or you have funds available.

The best long term solution is to set up a Direct Debit. Then you won't need to update your card details when they expire.

Annual charge

The £10 administration charge for each vehicle added to CC Auto Pay must be paid each year. You do not have to pay this charge immediately - it will be added to your first statement.

You can add your company's name to a business account, but both accounts need to have an individual person as the named account holder.

Fleet Auto Pay

The Fleet Auto Pay service is only available to business customers using six or more vehicles.

You can add up to five account users to help you manage your Auto Pay service.
