If you made a payment on your booking we will refund it fully provided we are notified prior to the booking start time. Web bookings may be cancelled by email or calling the office.
If you paid your deposit on a card your deposit was pre-authorised, it will show as a pending transaction for around a week then it voids itself off. You won't see it as a refund as it was never fully charged. Some banks like Metro, Monzo, and Stirling bank take longer to clear the funds back to their customers. If your transaction is still pending after a week you will need to contact your bank and ask them how much longer they will be holding it for as it has already been released from us.
We do not have these funds in our Bank account at any time.
Due to the high number of Penalties that were being issued to our customers we have now registered all of our vehicles for the Dartford Crossing.

The rates for crossings including admin fees are currently:
£3.50 for cars and up to 9 seat vehicles.
£4.00 for vans and vehicles with 10 or more seats.
This is for each crossing.
The penalties that were in place previously resulted in a charge of £70.00 from dart charge plus up to £50.00 admin from ourselves. This has removed these charges.
All vehicles travlling into central london may be subject to the Congestion Charge and a ULEZ charge.
You should remember that the Congestion charge does not appy between18:00-07:00 on weekdays or on weekends, public holidays or any days between Christmas Day and New Year's Day.
