APH.com outlines electric vehicle charging options for Gatwick travellers

Tuesday, 11 Jun, 2024 0

As electric and hybrid car sales hit a new global record in 2024­­, the need for increased electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure is paramount.

Convenient access to charging stations is a top priority and it appears UK airports are stepping up to meet this demand with Gatwick Airport opening a new Gridserve Electric Forecourt in January.

To help drivers plan ahead and travel with peace of mind, airport parking specialist Airport Parking and Hotels (APH.com) has released a guide comparing the EV charging ports at Gatwick Airport and surrounding area.

Available at www.aph.com/evcharging, the guide features 20 different charging stations and their facilities including distance from Gatwick Airport, range of devices, charging power, valet availability, number of connectors, and costs.

​The newly opened Gridserve Electric Forecourt at Gatwick Airport offers 32 connectors with power options ranging from 22kW to 350kW, priced at 79p/kWh.

With the ability to accommodate various types of connectors including CCS Combo, it enables rapid charging and minimal waiting times.

​The guide highlights several affordable charge points including Gatwick South Terminal Orange Car Park, featuring 4 connectors, 22kW power, and accessible via the Pod Point app.

This is the most cost-effective on-airport charging at 25p/kWh.

The Holiday Inn London Gatwick, located 1.5 miles from the airport, provides a mix of fast and rapid chargers with power up to 50kW, accessible through the BP Pulse app.

​Tesla owners, although capable of using any of the 20 charging stations in the area, should take advantage of the London Gatwick Supercharger on airport premises.

This Supercharger offers high-speed charging with power up to 250kW, priced at 37p to 47p/kWh depending on the time of day.

​The guide also covers off-airport options such as Tesco Extra Gatwick, which provides affordable charging at 44p/kWh – 49p/kWh and up to 69p/kWh for rapid charging.

​Travellers looking to return from holiday to a fully charged car, the most convenient option is pre-booking airport parking with a reputable service provider such as APH.

In addition to offering EV charging, APH provides secure valet parking.

​For EV owners looking for no-cost options, Motorline Gatwick Hyundai Dealership offers free charging at its premises, though drivers must report to reception upon arrival.

​Nick Caunter, MD of Airport Parking and Hotels (APH.com), said, “We hope the APH guide provides a one-stop solution so drivers can plan ahead and find reliable EV charging when on the go.”
