With EV ownership rising exponentially you could be missing out on lucrative business if you don't offer this increasingly vital utility for guests and staff.

To prevent lost bookings

If you’ve checked hotel booking sites lately, you may have noticed that ‘Electric Vehicle Charge Point’ has been added to the list of amenities that potential guests can select. Try it for yourself – search hotels in your area, then select this option – you’ll discover that over 75% of properties will disappear from the search results (including yours if you don’t offer this facility).

By installing EV chargers, you’ll position your destination at the forefront of the market, building confidence & loyalty with lucrative EV tourists; as well as businesses with an electrified
fleet looking for conferencing facilities.

To provide an additional revenue stream

Automated payment software packages make it simple to take payments for using the chargers. You can decide whether to offer this as an additional service for overnight clients, or as a pay-as-you-go option for guests, staff, visitors or even passing travellers (who may want to top up charge while using your restaurant).

To improve your sustainability credentials

By providing EV charging you’ll promote your corporate social responsibility and commitment to carbon reduction. And by switching your own company vehicles to electric, you’ll also benefit from lower emissions, and lower operating & maintenance costs.

With new Govt grants available to accommodation providers towards the installation of EV chargers for staff & guests (£350 per unit, up to £14k), there’s never been a better time to invest
in this increasingly essential utility.
