Smarter driving

You can save 15% on your annual fuel bill by driving more efficiently. The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents offers courses on how to drive more efficiently.

Refer to the AA Eco-Driving Guide to see other ways you can reduce carbon emissions.

Electric vehicles

You are exempt from paying the Congestion Charge and vehicle tax if you have an electric vehicle.

You can also get a grant towards the cost of an electric or hybrid plug-in car or van. Refer to the Department for Transport for more information.

Car sharing and rentals

You can also help the environment by sharing cars with individuals who travel the same journey. London Liftshare matches you with other people so that you can car share.
A car club, such as Zipcar, allows you to rent a vehicle if you don’t always need a car.
