Electric Vehicle Charging, the Key to Attracting More Guests

Hotels, restaurants and accommodation providers know that new ways of attracting more customers and growing their business are vital and not always easy. With the increase of Electric Vehicles (EVs) on our roads and the ban of new sales of petrol and diesel cars in 2030, EV chargers at your location can offer lots of benefits to your business. 

EasyGo, Ireland’s largest privately owned EV charging network with over 25,000 local EV drivers subscribed to their app and more than 1,000 charging points installed across Ireland, have partnered with many hotels to provide and install various powered EV charging solutions.

Attract more guests

EV owners are much more likely to choose places that provide chargers when deciding where to stay or visit, and accommodation websites such as Booking.com and Expedia, now have filters to only search and show hotels where guests can charge their vehicles.

Having EV charge points installed and on a popular network like EasyGo can also lead to:

  • More / repeat business
  • Attracting more local customers
  • Increased corporate clients
  • Additional tourist bookings

Ahead of the Curve

EasyGo is the only app where drivers can see and use EasyGo, ESB and Ionity chargers all in one place on their mobile phone.  Therefore, having EV chargers installed on your site will quite literally put you on the map as a place to stop

From a tourist point of view, leading car rental companies such as Hertz have announced they are moving their fleets to EVs.

These tourists and visitors are likely to only stop and stay in places where they can charge their electric vehicle. Installing EV chargers now will help you stay ahead of the curve and future-proof your business. It’s simple to scale up as demand increases which is what Mount Juliet Estate in Kilkenny have done; starting with a dual 22kW AC charger in 2020 and recently adding a DC fast charger which EasyGo installed ahead of the 2022 Irish Open.
