Frequently Asked Questions about electric car rental
How can I find charging stations for my electric rental car?
There are many websites out there that allow you to search for charging stations in your immediate area. A great website for available charging stations within The Netherlands is www.oplaadpunten.nl. They also have a great app, which can be used with both iOS and Android.
How do I pay for charging my electric car?
The charge card that we give you when you come to pick up your electric car, works at all the public charging stations within built-up areas. Charging it at one of these stations is entirely free of charge.
To charge the car on the highway, you can download a mobile app called “Fastned”. These are chargeable sessions which can be paid for via the app, with your credit card.

No, there’s no need for it to be fully charged when you bring it back to us. When you’ve returned your electric rental car, we will charge it for you.
