Introducing our new Car + Charge plan on Rent 2 Buy & Rent 2 Buy +, giving you exclusive access to the Otto Charging Network

  • £39/pw Weekly Charging Credit
  • Added to your Rent 2 Buy or Rent 2 Buy + account – All in one place
  • Special offer – 50% off the first 4 weeks

With our new network, you’ll have access to a wide range of rapid and ultra rapid chargers (50 kWh), and the majority of these are on public roads and petrol stations. There are also hundreds of fast chargers (7-22 kWh) to choose from as well, giving you more choice and access than ever before.

Make significant savings on your running costs by saving up to 30% on charging costs with Shell Recharge (which are not available to the general public).

Everything is tied under your Rent 2 Buy or Rent 2 Buy + account so you just continue making one simple weekly payment. Simple!

Don’t forget, we’re offering 50% off the first 4 weeks as a welcome offer.

Please note – The price of charging may go up or down should Shell Recharge change their pricing. Otto Car will continue to set our weekly charging cost at £39 but the number of kilowatts you’ll receive may go up or down. It is your responsibility to check all charging pricing in person or on the network apps before charging your electric PCO car (pricing will be available). You’ll still continue to get exclusive discounted rates that are not available to the public regardless of price changes from the networks. Any additional charging costs outside of your allocation will be charged at the standard rate. E.g. If you go over your allocated charging credit by £10 at the end of the month (we check on a monthly basis), you’ll be charged an additional £10.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Scheme Explained

What is Car + Charge?

Car + Charge is a new plan within the Rent 2 Buy & Rent 2 Buy + scheme that gives PCO drivers access to our new Otto Charging Network. It will be added to your account so it’s all in one place (and one simple weekly payment!).

How does it work?

You’ll be given weekly charging credit to use as you please. You’ll be able to access Shell’s Recharge’s network.

We check your charging credit on a monthly basis and if you go over your allowance, you'll be charged for the difference. E.g. If you go over your allocated charging credit by £10 at the end of the month (we check on a monthly basis), you’ll be charged an additional £10.

The Costs

Can you explain the savings?

The Shell Recharge rate is significantly cheaper than what's available to the public.

Will charging costs change?

Yes. As we're connected to Shell Recharge, the price per kilowatt on a given charger may go up or down.

Otto Car will continue to set our weekly charging cost at £39 but the number of kilowatts you'll receive may go up or down due to network pricing.

It is your responsibility to check all charging pricing in person or on the Shell Recharge app before charging your electric PCO car (pricing will be available per charger type and location).

How it works?

How does this affect my Rent 2 Buy or Rent 2 Buy + account?

Your Car + Charge plan is added to your weekly rental so you only ever have one payment coming out of your account. Simple!

What if I go over my limit?

If you go over your charging credit allowance (we check on a monthly basis), there is an additional charge per kilowatt at the same price.

What if I want to cancel my Car + Charge plan?

No problem. You can cancel after 88 days (3 months) and revert to your basic Rent 2 Buy or Rent 2 Buy + account.

We require 14 days' notice of intention to cancel by emailing [email protected] with your name and registration details.

Are there any additional charges I may have to pay?

You may be overcharged for staying in the same charge bay. Please check all signage on-site as this will differ from place to place.

How long will it take to charge my PCO car with a rapid charger?

Generally speaking, you’ll be able to charge from 0%-80% in around 30-60 minutes.

Who do I contact if I need support?

There is an easy-to-find support section within the Shell Recharge apps. You can also contact [email protected] for account issues.
