Why Hotels need electric car charging points

Green Energy, Information
EV charging points for hotels

Keeping up with technology has always created sales opportunities in the tourism and hospitality sector.

And with the wave of car owners now switching from combustion engines to electric vehicles, there is real opportunity for Hotels to gain a service advantage over their competitors by having EV Charging Points installed in their Hotel Car Parks.

Electric Vehicles are not just a trend.  They are the future of personal transportation.  From Audi to Jaguar, Ford to Mercedes.  All of the most well known car manufacturers around the world are committing to ending the production of combustion engines within the next decade or so and switching 100% to electric.

This means that frequent guests of a hotel including family holidays, business trips and other travelling sectors will be looking for nightly accommodation that has the ability to recharge their vehicles.

Hotels across the UK are already taking advantage of increased sales turnover because they have become early adopters of EV Charging Points in their premises.  And why not.  They are the perfect type of business to have EV Charging Systems installed and it offers them a significant sales opportunity over nearby hotels that do not offer charging facilities.

EV Charging for Hotels

Reasons why a hotel is perfect for electric vehicle charging

From check in to check out, a hotel guest can leave their car in the parking spot all evening, night and morning.  A perfect amount of time to charge their vehicle.  For guests who are not staying at the hotel overnight and instead are there for other hotel functions such as a wedding, business function, trade show etc, this still offers ample time for EV charging systems to suitably charge an Electric Vehicle.

Hotels also benefit from EV charging points because their car parks are already ideally laid out to accommodate a large number of parking spots for guests.  Off street parking of course is essential for EV charging points.

Who can use EV Charging Points at a hotel

Guests, Hotel staff and even Hotel Transportation Vehicles can all benefit from EV Charging onsite.  When a potential hotel guest scans through the filtering options when looking for a hotel, there are some criteria that are more important than others.  Wifi, breakfast facilities, a swimming pool…..and now EV Charging Facilities.  Having a place to charge your electric vehicle while you relax on a night away gives guests a new level of peace of mind. For the hotel themselves, they can take advantage of running an electric vehicle and benefit from the onsite charging services.

Offering a sales feature to more than just hotels

Hotels are of course the easiest example of a hospitality service that can benefit from Electric Vehicle Charging.  But Guesthouses, Holiday Lets, Lodge/Cabin Hire and Bed & Breakfast locations can all benefit from having an EV Charging Point fitted. As more and more motorists make the switch to electric vehicles, the demand for charging points will naturally increase with it. Getting an early start over the competition is a smart business decision.
