Overall a great experience. It's great to have a company where you can talk to people who know what they are doing. They were extremely professional. From initial office staff through to the engineer doing the installation. I would strongly recommend them.

The benefits of installing an EV charging point at your holiday home

If you’re a holiday home owner, run a B&B, or manage a holiday park, make an investment to boost your bookings by installing electric vehicle (EV) charging points at your property or site. 

The number of EVs on the road continues to increase, with a 35% rise in sales from 2022 to 2023. Many of these new EV owners will soon be planning trips away in their new vehicles, and EV charge point availability is likely to be at the top of their list when browsing for the perfect holiday accommodation. Offering EV charging is a surefire way to stand out to more potential customers this summer.

Fulfil the demand for EV charging points 

As EVs grow in popularity, public charging infrastructure is being developed at a rapid pace across the country. However, during peak-tourism season in some popular destinations, these public services can fall short. Popular holiday destinations including Northern Ireland, Exeter, Swansea, Norwich and Cambridge, to name a few, are seeing an influx of holiday-makers struggling to find public charging, and seeking accommodation with charging. By providing an EV charge point at your accommodation, you make EV charging fuss-free for guests, setting your property out from the crowd and appealing to a whole new customer base.  

EV charging units at holiday homes provide guests with next level convenience and comfort. Holiday-makers can charge up as soon as they arrive, and explore the local area without range anxiety. By catering for the eco-conscious customer, you’ll have something to shout about. What’s more, as EVs become the norm, guests will begin to expect EV charging units to be readily available, so you’ll be ahead of the curve!

Help towards the cost of an EV charge point installation 

Holiday home owners can get help towards the cost of an EV charge point installation. The UK government recently expanded the Workplace Charging Scheme (WCS) to enable holiday and short-stay accommodation providers to apply for a grant covering up to 75% of the total cost (up to £350) of the purchase and installation of an EV charging point. 

When installing an EV charging point, you’ll quickly see a return on your investment. You might choose to charge customers for each use, and there are excellent software options available to enable this cost to be accurately passed on to your guests with minimum admin involved. Alternatively, you could increase your rates to cover installation and charging costs. Either way, you won’t be left out of pocket. 

What to consider with an EV charging unit installation 

There are a few points to consider once you’ve decided that an EV charge point is the ideal addition to your holiday home. 

You’ll need to check that your property has a sufficient electricity supply to power a charging station. It’s also important to note that the grant currently only applies to private land, so your property will need to have a driveway or garage. The charging point will need to be installed by an OZEV approved installer, which we are!
