If you are travelling down to the south coast or across to Europe you are more than likely to use the Dartford Bridge or Dartford Tunnel on your return journey. The way you pay for the crossing has recently changed so to avoid a fine please follow the below.
You no longer pay for the Dartford Crossing at the barriers. The new payment scheme is called Dart Charge.
You must pay for a crossing in advance or by midnight the day after by making a one-off payment.
You can make a one-off payment:
- online at www.gov.uk/dart-charge
- over the phone by calling: 0300 300 0120
