Adding EV charging to your hotel can make it the preferred place to stay.
If you’re considering installing EV charging at your hotel, there’s a range of benefits that make it a compelling inclusion for your property, as well as important considerations to keep in mind.
Why Offer EV Charging at Your Hotel?
There’s a range of benefits to installing EV charging at your hotel, for both you and your guests.
Attract a Higher Spending Guest
As uptake of electrical vehicles has primarily occurred in the luxury vehicle segment, providing EV charging therefore attracts a more premium-focussed guest. These guests will not only be more likely to spend on EV charging, if you do decide to offer it as a paid option, but also are likely to spend more on the other amenities offered by your property.
Providing An Elevated Level of Amenity
Like WiFi, breakfast, gyms and a pool, increasingly guests are looking to EV charging as a level of amenity required in order to consider a hotel their destination of choice; those who do have an electric vehicle will be searching and shortlisting hotels specifically on the basis that they provide EV charging.
By not providing EV charging, your hotel risks being discounted immediately by a growing market.
Positioning yourself as a Sustainability Leader
Lastly, the strong association between electric vehicles and eco-friendliness positions your hotel in a positive light, even for guests who don’t yet own an EV.
The flow on effect of this of course is that your hotel will then be preferenced by environmentally conscious guests ahead of competitor properties.
