Avis Location Information
What about the Congestion Charge in London?
The London Congestion Charge is a surcharge levied against all vehicles entering central London between 07:00hrs and 18:00hrs, Monday to Friday (no charge is made during weekends or on public holidays). If you collect your rental car from Avis locations within the congestion zone during charging hours, Avis will purchase the permit for the first calendar day (will be added to the total price).
For additional days, if you are driving within the zone when the charge is in force, you will be liable to pay. Permits may be purchased via authorised retail outlets, by post, the Internet or by phone (0845 900 1234). An £8 permit can be purchased any time up until 22:00hrs on the day rising to £10 if purchased after 22:00hrs.
Currently the zone covers the following areas: Bayswater, Notting Hill, North and South Kensington, Knightsbridge, Chelsea, Brompton, Belgravia, Pimlico, St. James's, Waterloo, Borough, City of London, Clerkenwell, Finsbury, Holborn, Bloomsbury, Soho. Mayfair and parts of Marylebone. There is a charge for the use of vehicles on roads within the charging zone, but not for using roads round the perimeter itself.
Failure to purchase a permit will result in the customer of a vehicle being issued with a penalty notice to the value of £100, this would be discounted to £50 if paid within 14 days. If Avis receives a penalty notice, Avis will pay on behalf of the customer and then send an invoice to the customer with the addition of an administration fee.
