What is the Ultra Low Emission Zone and is it included?

The Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ), has now been introduced in designated parts of London 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to help reduce emissions, and improve our air quality.

The new zone will use the same boundaries as the central London Congestion charge zone and vehicles that do not comply with the new standards will face a daily charge of £12.50.

Is the vehicle I am renting subject to the ULEZ charge? If the vehicle you are renting is subject to the charge, it should be clearly stated in the listing. If you are unsure and would like to check, please visit here, and enter the registration plate of the vehicle you are renting.

Is the charge included? The ULEZ Charge will not be included in your rental price and you will be required to settle the charge directly with TfL.

How to pay? To pay online, go to: www.tfl.gov.uk

If you don't pay by midnight on the day after you travel, the owner will receive a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN). Go to this article to see the next steps.
