Zapmap and GeniePoint are offering 10p per kWh off charging every Monday in the run-up to Christmas!

From the 27th of November up until Christmas Day, Zapmap and Equans, the company that owns and runs the GeniePoint network, one of the largest public EV charging networks in the UK, are offering discounted charging rates for EV drivers. 

The festive promotion is an exclusive offer for Zap-Pay users when charging on the GeniePoint network. 

The current GenieFlex price tariff is 75p per kWh for off-peak charging, and 79p per kWh at peak times. This exclusive offer of a 10p per kWh reduction will see Zap-Pay users benefit from a charging tariff of 65p per kWh during off-peak times, and 69p per kWh during peak times.

GenieFlex was introduced as a way to give customers access to lower charging rates during off-peak hours. It also supports drivers who don’t have access to home charging, by providing the opportunity to charge on public rapid chargers at a value rate and benefit from varied pricing.

“With Zapmap drivers hitting the roads this festive season, I’m delighted we are able to help them save money with a great discount on charging rates when using Zap-Pay on the GeniePoint network on Mondays," said Matt Lloyd, CPO Manager at Zapmap.

"This partnership offers two ways of savings: it guarantees an automatic 10p per kWh discount on all qualifying charges. Additionally, it extends to the GenieFlex tariff, which offers more affordable off-peak rates throughout the year, supporting EV drivers who don’t have access to a home charger," Lloyd continued.

“For any new electric car drivers not familiar with Zap-Pay, simply open the ‘Payment’ filter in Zapmap and select ‘Zap-Pay’ to see the charging locations of all ten payment partners.”

Zapmap has been championing the shift to electric vehicles since 2014, when it was founded with a mission to make EV charging simple, wherever you go. Today, hundreds of thousands of electric car drivers use the app, which helps EV drivers search for available charge points, plan longer journeys, pay for charging, and share updates with other users.

Zapmap currently has around 700,000 registered users and over 95% of the UK’s public points on its network, more than 70% of which show live availability data.

Dee Humphries, Director at Equans EV Solutions, commented on the partnership offer:

“We’re excited to be launching this offer with Zapmap, enabling EV drivers to save 10p per kWh every Monday on the lead-up to Christmas when they charge on the GeniePoint network through Zap-Pay.

"Whether drivers are plugging in whilst they do their weekly shop or charging on their way to work, we wanted to spread the festive cheer throughout the Christmas period; which is often the most expensive time of year, by offering discounted charging every Monday.”

The nationwide GeniePoint network, owned and operated by Equans, is one of the largest rapid public EV charging networks in the UK. Spanning from Dundee to Falmouth, each charger is powered by 100% renewable energy, offering an accessible and sustainable way to charge.
