Charging an electric car

Charging your rental electric vehicle

One of the biggest questions when it comes to electric cars is where can you charge them. Read on to find out more.

Where can you charge your car?

Aside from charging it at your own residence, the network of charging locations where you can charge your vehicle is expanding all the time. They are not yet though as common as petrol stations, so, particularly if driving long distances, you do need to pay a little more attention to how charged you are and where you can top up. Electric cars are just as heavy as conventional ones should you need to push one — don’t say we didn’t warn you.

Below is a list of resources showing where stations are. Note that private provider apps will most likely present the most up-to-date information — at least regarding their own charging stations.
