What happens if I go through the Dartford Crossing?

The Dartford Crossing is a tolled bridge & tunnel in east London, which carries a small automatic toll charge to cross. This is often called the 'Dart Charge' and applies by reading the vehicle license plate.


  • If you cross through the Dartford Crossing during your reservation, as with the Congestion Charge, the cost of this is covered by Zipcar automatically with nothing for you to do.
  • Both the Dartford charge and the London Congestion charge are included in your reservation cost, so there's no need for concern or payment. The license plate will be recognised as a Zipcar vehicle and no charge will be incurred.
  • If you have paid the Dartford charge for a Zipcar in error, you can contact them via the following link:
