Highways England adds new Dart Charge payment options

Date: 24 November 2015   |   Author: Daniel Puddicombe

Highways England has introduced two new payment options for the Dartford Crossing, giving motorists more flexibility in how they can pay the charges.

The new services are:

  • Pay as You Go: Drivers can register their vehicle and payment details and automatically pay their Dart Charge each time they use the crossing.
  • Pingit: Drivers can pay for single crossings using the Pingit app on their smartphone. The app is available for iOS, Android and Windows Phone devices.

Currently, users can pay the Dart Charge with a prepay account, set up to charge automatically when going across the crossing or pay for individual journeys.

"Dart Charge already gives drivers flexibility about how and when they pay the Dartford Crossing charge," said Dart Charge project director Nigel Gray.

The new services can be accessed when drivers visit the Dart Charge website. In line with existing pay per crossing options these new services are charged at the standard crossing rate - only pre-pay accounts offer a discount of up to one third on each crossing.
