Deposit Charge

If I don't have London Beer Gas cylinders do I need to pay a deposit ?

Yes, you may need to pay a deposit which covers the cost and maintenance of the beer gas cylinder.

What is the cost of the deposit charge ?

For most cylinders it is £40.00 plus VAT

If I return my beer gas cylinder do I get the deposit back ?

As long as you keep your receipt (proof of purchase) and are able to show the receipt to the driver on collection of the cylinder you will get a proportion of the deposit charge back. The proportion refunded is based on the number of years you have had the cylinder. Please note that refunds are not returned by the drivers. The office will contact you within 2 working days to arrange your refund. Please see the table below.
