FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

What is Car + Charge?

Car + Charge is a new plan within the Rent 2 Buy scheme that gives drivers access to our new Otto Charging Network.

 

How does it work?

You’ll be given weekly charging credit to use as you please. You’ll be able to access both BP Pulse and Shell’s Recharge’s network and choose from over 500 rapid and 700 fast chargers. The cost per kilowatt is different on both networks with BP Pulse at 15p per kWh (rapid) and Shell Recharge at 28p per kWh.

The Shell Recharge rate is significantly cheaper than what’s available to the public, saving up up to 11p per kilowatt. Both networks have outstanding coverage but Shell have a larger number of rapid chargers available at any time.

 

What’s the full breakdown of charging prices per charger type and network?

Below is a list of how you can spend your weekly charging credit. The prices stay the same even once you go over the limit. You can simply carry on charging and you’ll see the additional cost on your Otto Car account.

 

BP Pulse

Slow – 3 Kwh = 12p
Fast – 7-22 kWh = 12p
Rapid- 50 kWh =15p
Ultra Rapid – 15 kWh = 27p

 

Shell Recharge (Includes ESB, Osprey & others)

Slow – 3 kWh= 28P
fast – 7-22 kWh = 28p
Rapid – 50 kWh = 28p
Ultra Rapid – 150 kWh = 28p

 

How does this affect my Rent 2 Buy account?

Your car + charge package is added to your weekly rental so you only ever have one payment coming out of your Rent 2 Buy account. Simple!

 

What if I go over my limit or don’t use up my weekly allocation?

Any unused kilowatts will be rolled over into the following week. If you go over your weekly limit of kilowatts there is an additional charge per kilowatt that’s the same price as the fixed price (BP Pulse – 15p per kWh – rapid / Shell Recharge 28p per kWh). 

 

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

No problem at all, you can cancel with just 28 days notice at any time after the first 3 months and revert back to just the basic Rent 2 Buy package.

 

How can I access the Otto Charging Network?

When you collect your PCO car, you’ll be given access to both the BP Pulse and Shell Recharge app. Physical account cards will be available to collect from your chosen Otto Hub around 7 days later.

 

What’s included in the Otto Charging Network?

You’ll have instant access to over 600 rapid (50kWh) and 700 fast chargers (7-22kWh) in the capital, making it London’s largest and fastest charging network (within the M25). All the charge points within the app will be available for you to use, including the slow chargers if needed.

Please note that whilst the Shell charging prices are the same regardless of charger type or operator within Shell Recharge app (28p), BP Pulse prices differ.

BP Pulse is 15p for the rapids (the majority of chargers that you’ll use), fast/slow chargers are 12p and ultra-rapid chargers (150kW) are 27p.

 

Can you tell us all the charging companies included in the Otto Charging Network?

Absolutely. You get access to both BP Pulse and Shell Recharge, which includes a wide range of charging companies within each app as well as their own branded charge points. The majority of charge points available to you overall will be BP Pulse, Shell Recharge and ESB charge points.

Are there any additional charges I may have to pay?

With BP Pulse’s charge points, a £10 per hour overstay fee applies to anyone charging for over 90 minutes on their  50kW or 150kW chargers to ensure there’s no overstay. Non BP-owned charge points on the BP Pulse network charges may differ and we’d recommend to check the signage at the site.

 

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 minutes.
