POD Point Pay as You Go Terms and Conditions

Background

POD Point Ltd (“we”) run a network of electric vehicle charge points which we allow our members (“you”) to use.

Our network of charge points is a mixture of free to use, and pay as you go charge points. Some accessible by an RFID card, and some accessible using our PAYG website and applications.

This page details the terms and conditions which you are agreeing to by signing up to our Pay As You Go charge network.

Joining

There is no cost to join the POD Point Pay as you Go network.

When you have joined, you will have access to charge points which are pay as you go enabled, but do not have a cost associated with them.

If you wish to use charge points with a cost associated with them, you will need to Top Up.

Types of Charge Points

There are a mixture of charge point types on our network to suit various vehicles.

Our network supports a number of different hardware solutions, not all of which support all features.

There are also 3 groups of publicly available charge points as follows:

  • Pay as you go charge points
  • Pay as you go charge points (free to use)
  • Non Pay as you go charge points.

Using a Pay as You Go charge point.

To use a Pay as you go charge point, you will need to use our mobile website or mobile application.

The cost of using a charge point is displayed on our mobile website and applications.

You will need to have a balance of greater than £1 on your account to start a charge cycle.

If you do not have sufficient balance on your account, you will need to top up, details of which are covered below.

When your account balance reaches zero, we will stop your charge cycle. It is therefore important that you have sufficient balance on your account to allow you to complete your charge.

Using a Pay as You Go (free) charge point.

Some charge points on our network are free to use. You can use these charge points via our mobile website or application. There is no cost for using these charge points.

Non-PAYG charge points

Some charge points on our network do not support PAYG. These cannot be accessed by our mobile site or mobile pps but may sometimes be accessed using an RFID card.

Toping Up

In order to use a charge point which has a cost associated with it, you will need to have a balance of greater than £1 on your account. If you do not have sufficient balance on your account, you will need to top up.

Our web sites and apps will walk you through the process of topping up.

We use established external credit card processing companies to process our financial transactions who are:

  • WorldPay - http://www.worldpay.com/
  • Stripe - https://stripe.com/gb

POD Point Ltd does not store your credit/debit card details.

How billing works.

Our billing works on the basis of the length of time your vehicle is plugged into a charge point.

We reserve the right to vary the price of charging at any of our charge points without notice.

The price of your charge cycle will always be based on the price model in force at the time you started your charge cycle.

Closing your account.

You can close your account with us at any time by emailing payg@pod-point.com stating that you would like to close your account.

On receipt of your request, we will process your account closure, and, within 20 working days transfer any balance remaining on your account back onto the credit or debit card on which you last topped up.
