Gridserve giving 20% off charging costs all summer via new app

Electric Highway operator Gridserve is offering EV drivers 20% off their charging costs this summer to mark the launch of its new app.

The chargepoint firm operates more than 1,400 devices at more than 190 charging locations ranging from its dedicated Electric Forecourts and motorway Super Hubs to retail hubs at major outlets such as Dobbies.

Drivers stopping to charge at any of these locations will be able to automatically claim the discount by signing up to and paying through the new Gridserve app which has just launched on Google Play and Apple App Store.

The new app will help users find the best charging location which then can be navigated to through Google Maps, Apple Maps or Waze. The app has real-time, up to date availability statuses on all charging locations. Once at the chosen Gridserve charger, the app can be used to securely pay for the session.

Whilst charging, users will be able to monitor their charge, see their charging curves and track when their vehicle will be ready to continue on its journey.

The new app will also make getting a receipt easier than ever. Following the end of the charging session, receipts will be automatically emailed to the user’s chosen email address along with a charging summary. Up to 12 previous charging sessions can also be stored on a user’s account.

Rebecca Trebble, chief customer experience officer at Gridserve, said: “We are thrilled to be launching the Gridserve app. 200,000 charging sessions are recorded on the Gridserve Electric Highway every month and the new app will make those charging sessions even easier. We have listened to our users and made it easier to receive receipts as we look to constantly improve our service. With 20% off charging across our locations this summer, it’s the perfect time to utilise the network and the app for a summer adventure.”

The discount offer runs from Tuesday 2 July and ends at 00:01 on Tuesday 1 October.
