For the EV driver

Polar Instant is a smart phone app that is available for both iPhone and Android smart phones that enables you to use hundreds of charging points across the country directly from your smart phone without the need for a RFID card or pre-registration to a “scheme”.

Using the app you can view where all the charging points are across the country and check their live availability. You can also check what tariff they are on, and see what type of socket and output they have. Click on our map and get directions to the charging point and then simply start and stop the charge using the app.

Two easy steps on the go

  1. Download the free app from the App Store or Google Play. Follow the simple instructions to register and set up your account. You will need to add a minimum of £10 to your account using your credit/debit card.
  2. Drive to the charging point that you wish to use using the directions provided if required and follow the simple instructions on the smartphone screen.

All charges are subject to a £1.20 minimum amount which is deducted from your balance once the charge is complete. Some chargepoints will also incur a cost for the electricity used. To check the costs of individual chargepoints, please view our map.

You may set up your account, make credits, view charging point locations and tariffs as well as check your charging history and account balance online in the same way as on the Polar Instant app.

If you need any assistance when charging call the Polar Instant help line, on 0330 016 5126.
