Dart save is no more benefit that doing it yourself, all it is really is an outfit that you register your car with they then register your car on their account and give you 21 days to pay them. You cant sign up after crossing, it has to be before crossing so they wont fine you as they cant and neither will dart charge as dart save have paid your 1.67 fee.       They pay dart charge 1.67 and charge you 2.50 for doing something you could have done yourself.    Now I grant you its only 83p profit per crossing you will still have to fill in their account details same as filling in a Dart charge account. You'd be better off one dart charge shared between friends even like us   We have about 15 families of us with around 32 vehicles all on the same account. someone adds it up every six months and we paypal as friends to a pot and one of us tops the account up.
   
Imagine Dart save like that but it seeks to make a profit it makes a profit on the account vehicle, they pay 2.50, dart save pay dart charge 1.67 so not sure what saving it actually is. Now its only 83p but 100000 83p's well that's 83,000.00 not bad for a bit of software. I imagine it will likely come to an end as I can hardly see the government or TFL or whoever it is allowing it to continue   they will probably put some account criteria in place saying only vehicle owned by account holder.

Open a Dart charge account its just as easy and cheaper

Dartsave seems like another operation like saneftollinguk, and those firms that charge you 20 for a free NHS EHIC card, why folk use these companies is beyond me, when it's just as easy to set up yourself, and the cost is less.

Why would anyone wan't to delay a 2.50 payment for 21 days, when you could simply pay 1.67 straight from your Dart account, I clearly must me missing something!

We have a Dart account and it does make things easier and seems to have reduced congestion. We travelled through today with no hold-ups or queues.

No idea about 'Dart-Save', is it a middle-man agency?

We use the Dartford Crossing on a regular basis as family live in Kent and we live in Hertfordshire. Since the removal of the toll booths the crossing has been easy to get through unless some one tries to throw themselves off the bridge ...then it gets closed.
I set up an account with the official Dart tag firm at the outset and it has made life easy. Remember also that if you cross after 10pm there is no charge. It seems weird to look at the account history and see that we crossed to go south but appear never to have returned!!!

Just to let people know before the onset of the summer holidays there are quite a few delays lately around the road works taking place on the Dartford crossing on both sides of the river. So check before you travel and maybe factor in allowing extra time if your journey is taking you that way.
