Enhancing Hotel Guest Experience with EV Charging: Beyond Just a Parking Spot

As electric vehicle sales rise, hotels owners may be missing out on extra revenue and bookings by not offering EV charging to guests.

The travel industry is undergoing a seismic shift as eco consciousness takes center stage.  As the number of electric vehicles (EVs) on the road soars (nearly 1.8 million plug-in cars registered in the UK by April 2024), hotels risk alienating guests by not offering on-site EV charging. This surge in EV adoption presents a golden opportunity - by embracing sustainability and creating a more guest-centric experience with EV charging, hotels can truly differentiate and future-proof themselves.

The Allure of EV Charging

Offering EV charging stations at your hotel or hospitality venue isn't just about providing a convenient amenity.  According to an SMS report, almost a half (48 percent) of UK EV drivers would choose to not to stay at a hotel without onsite EV chargepoints.  By catering to EV drivers, you're demonstrating a commitment to sustainability, a factor that resonates with a growing segment of travelers, not to mention the convenience aspect.

A Seamless Experience from Arrival to Departure

Imagine a guest arriving at your hotel after a long journey.  They no longer have to worry about finding a public charging station or experiencing "range anxiety."  The presence of a dedicated EV charging point at your hotel allows them to relax and recharge their vehicle effortlessly, enhancing their overall experience.

EV charging offers additional advantages for your hospitality business:

  • Attract New Customers:  By catering to the growing EV market, you'll attract a new generation of travelers who actively seek out hotels with charging facilities.
