London Congestion Charge Questions

 

Check out answers to some of the most commonly asked questions for the London Congestion Charge?

 

1) I don’t have AutoAlert, can you tell me whether I entered the London Congestion Charging Zone?

AutoAlert is not affiliated with Transport for London and does not have access to their systems. If you don’t have one of our GPS Tracking Devices or our London Congestion Charging Zone Application, then I’m afraid we cannot see whether you entered the London Congestion Charging Zone.

For more information on Transport for London and their contact details, please check the TFL Congestion Charge website.

 

2) Can I Pay the Congestion Charge via the AutoAlert Congestion Charge App?

Yes, you can pay via our app by clicking on the orange banner at the top of the Check Zones page.

 

Pay London Congestion Charge

 

You can then select to pay by phone in which case we will connect you to the Transport for London call-centre or you can pay by text if you have an account registered with Transport for London.

To pay by text, you will first need to register with Transport for London.

Please note: AutoAlert does not process any payments or charge any fee for processing the payment. We simply send you on to the Transport for London call centre.

Please be careful when dealing with the Congestion Charge as a number of fake websites have been set up which try to pass themselves off as TFL to charge a premium for processing your congestion charge.

 

3) I’ve heard about Unofficial Sites pretending to be TFL, are you one of them?

No, our London Congestion Charge Check and Remind application is a simple application which lets you check whether you are in the London Congestion Charging Zone, connects you to the TFL call centre so you can make a payment or create a reminder so you don’t forget to pay.

Avoid Costly Congestion Charge Fines

 

New GPS app helps motorists around the world avoid costly congestion charge fines.

AutoAlert announces a big update to their London Congestion Checker App, which is now available for the iPhone 6. The app lets users know when they have entered the London Congestion Charge zone, and gives them the option to pay the charges through TFL, so that they can avoid fines.

The latest version of the app also boasts additional features designed to help drivers. It now lets users see when they entered or exited the congestion zone, and when they paid.

The app helps not just individual drivers, but also managers who are in charge of a fleet. It now allows users to add other drivers, so that they can monitor multiple cars simultaneously.

While the previous version of the app only monitors a car’s proximity to the London Congestion Charge zone, the updated app can be used for other zones too. For example, users have the option of adding the Low Emission zone in London, or the Ecopass zone in Milan.

Richard Harris, director of AutoAlert, commented on the app’s release. “For many Londoners, knowing when and where to pay the congestion charge is a struggle. We work with a lot of companies that have fleets of vehicles, so we designed this app to make their lives easier.”

“Our customers have already saved millions of pounds in congestion charge fines by using the app. This next update makes checking whether you are in the congestion zone even easier.”

More information can be found on the AutoAlert website, including a link to the app on the iTunes store.
