Do I need an RFID card to access the network?

No, you do not need to purchase an RFID card to access the network. However, due to the location of some charge points, the mobile phone connectivity may not always be the best in some remote areas so we highly recommend you order an RFID card to minimise any issues along the way. Please take into account that some machines on our network do not accept contactless, mobile app or webpay but all charge points accept RFID card.

I do not have a UK bank account, how do I access the network?

Overseas visitors who do not have a UK bank account, must create a ‘WISE’ account, which will generate an official UK bank account number, sort code, and IBAN. For full instructions see below.
