How will I charge the electric vehicle?

All our FlexiHire vehicles come with a regular type-2 charging cable, suitable for use on untethered home charge points. Alternatively, for tethered charging units the electric vehicle has the Type 2 and/or CCS charging port. Type 2/CCS is the most popular charging configuration in the UK.

Talk to our team of EV experts if you're unsure on how to charge an electric vehicle or if you require a 3-pin plug cable.

Where can I charge the electric vehicle?

You can charge the vehicle using the Type 2 cable provided in any regular home charge point.

Out and about, there are now over 19,000 electric vehicle charging points in the UK. We recommend using an app such as Zap-Map to plan and locate convenient public charging points.

How long does the vehicle take to charge?

It can take 12-15 hours to fully charge the electric vehicle's battery from flat, therefore charging overnight is ideal. Specific charging times vary depending on vehicle choice and the kind of charger you're using, speak to our team of EV experts to find out more. Using the rapid charger public network can add around 60% of charge in as little as 30 minutes.

What about fines and penalty charges?

You will be responsible for the costs of any parking fines or other penalties incurred while you rent the vehicle. We reserve the right to make reasonable charges for our time incurred and the administration costs involved in processing any fines and/or penalties.

Do I need to register for the London Congestion Charge?

No, we take care of that and ensure that our FlexiHire electric vehicles are all registered for the London Congestion Charge discount.
