Some patients may be able to reclaim the ULEZ charge - the elibgibility criteria and how to make a claim will be posted here, though will be based on patients meeting certain clinical criteria*.  Those eligible will have 3 months to claim a reimbursement.

How to reclaim your ULEZ charge

  1. Pay your ULEZ charge online.
  2. Keep your ULEZ charge receipt (or make a note of the receipt number).
  3. More details on how to claim with be added soon, please keep your proof of payment in order to make a claim.

What you may need to reclaim your ULEZ costs

  • your bank account details.
  • your vehicle registration number.
  • your ULEZ charge receipt number: you’ll get your receipt once you pay.

*NHS employees are not eligible to claim unless they are being treated as a patient and fit the eligibility criteria.
