    Watch Out - Congestion Charge

    Last week had a summons to pay London congestion charge. However, it wasn't our car. It was someone who had copied our plate and put it on another C-class. I guess they saw the car awaiting delivery from the South London dealers and cloned it. I'm in Hong Kong and been that way for a...

    Congestion charge

    Say I drive into the London congestion charge area and park in a hotels carpark for a week. Would I have to pay the charge for every day I'm in the area, or just the two days I entered and left? After all I could hardly be causing any congestion if the car is in a garage for five days. I...

    Congestion Charge.....?

    I am driving to London in the morning and was wondering is there still a charge for entering London? I have to go to the Knightsbridge Hotel and apart from being nervous about driving in a big city I recall there used to be a charge for entering an area. Does this still apply? Cheers.
