Does your journey take you via the Dartford Crossing?
The way that you pay for the Dartford crossing has now changed. You no longer pay at the barriers as you go through, instead you must pay for a crossing in advance or by midnight the day after by making a one-off payment. Here’s how you can pay:
- online at www.gov.uk/dart-charge
- over the phone by calling: 0300 300 0120
The cost of a single crossing in a motorhome (vehicle class B) is £2.50
Charges apply between 6am and 10pm every day, including Christmas and other bank holidays.
You’ll receive a Penalty Charge Notice if you don’t pay by midnight on the day after you made your crossing.
The penalty charge is £70 and must be paid within 28 days. It’s reduced to £35 if you pay within 14 days and increased to £105 if you don’t pay. You also have to pay the crossing charge.
The Penalty Charge Notice will tell you how to pay.
