High powered Electric Vehicle (EV) charging sites are starting to appear in major urban areas as EV ownership takes off in the UK. However, as EV drivers, we have identified the acute lack of charging in UK holiday destinations.
We value the great outdoors, the hills, the lakes, market towns and fabulous coast lines of this country and believe UK hospitality businesses should be given more information and advice as to how they can take advantage of the exciting and rapidly developing technology that EVs offer.
98% OF BOOKING.COM LISTINGS DON’T OFFER ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGING
As the UK moves towards full EV adoption between 2030 and 2035, more and more customers will expect to charge at hotels, Airbnb’s, holiday homes, holiday parks, guests houses – wherever they are staying overnight. However, our research has highlighted the following problems:
There is a lack of understanding about how EV charging infrastructure is going to work
The UK Gov has mandated the shift to EVs by 2035 but there’s not enough advice for busy, hard-working UK companies about how to keep their businesses relevant over the coming years
The rapidly evolving EV industry can be confusing due to developing technology
For many hotel businesses, these issues are causing uncertainty about how best to adapt to a future where customers will be reliant on convenient and well managed hotel charging.
As a specialist Charge Point Operator (CPO), EvieLife will help your hotel business adapt early and be ready for 2030 and beyond.

Very few hospitality venues currently offer EV charging - stand out from the crowd.
Our research shows that across all listing types, less than 10% offer EV charging on Airbnb, which is lower still when selecting specific venue types such as hotels or guest houses. Booking.com shows that if you require EV charging as part of your stay, 98% of places aren't suitable.
The number of places with EV charging will grow in the next 10 years but most hospitality businesses will begin considering EV charging after 2030. By this time, EV ownership will have risen dramatically, and they will be left with no choice but to adapt. Unfortunately, they will miss years of potential revenue and, depending on when they make the switch, it will determine how far behind the rest of the market they are.
We are passionate about helping UK hospitality take advantage of this new market and innovative technology and with our expertise we will help guide you from being uncertain, with little understanding of the benefits of EVs and EV hotel charging to a modern well-prepared, green focused UK hospitality business ready to take advantage in the years to come and well on into the 2030s.
