In today's world, electric vehicles are becoming more popular than ever before. This means that a growing number of guests are now looking for hotels that offer EV charging facilities. As a hospitality owner, if you don't install EV chargers, you risk losing out on a significant source of revenue and guest bookings. Here's why:
Attract More Guests
By installing EV chargers, you can attract a new segment of guests who are looking for a place to charge their cars while they travel. According to a survey by ChargePoint, 58% of EV drivers said they would choose a hotel with charging stations over one without.
Improve Customer Satisfaction
Offering EV charging can help improve customer satisfaction by providing a valuable service that guests are looking for. Satisfied guests are more likely to leave positive reviews and recommend your hotel to others, which can ultimately lead to more bookings and higher revenue.
Installing EV chargers can provide an additional revenue stream for your hotel, especially if you choose to monetize the charging stations. You can either charge guests for using the chargers or set up a pay-per-use model, depending on what works best for your business.
Enhance Your Green Credentials
Installing EV chargers shows your commitment to sustainability and the environment, which can enhance your hotel's reputation and attract eco-conscious travelers. These travelers are willing to pay more for hotels that demonstrate sustainability and environmental responsibility.
Stay Ahead of the Competition
As EV adoption continues to grow, hotels that offer EV charging will have a competitive advantage over those that don't. Not having EV chargers can result in fewer bookings and lost revenue to hotels that do.
For example, the Good Hotel London saw an increase in revenue by £28,000 in just two months after installing an EV charging station. Similarly, the Best Western Plus hotel in Liverpool saw a 52% increase in room bookings after installing EV charging stations. These examples show how EV charging stations can positively impact a hotel's revenue and guest bookings.
Installing EV chargers can help hospitality owners attract more guests, improve customer satisfaction, increase revenue, enhance their green credentials, and stay ahead of the competition.
