You can use Zap-Pay to pay for your charging sessions at any Fastned charge points (within the UK).

Zap-Pay is the simple way to pay for charging within the Zapmap app. Select the charger you'd like to use within the app (a helpful Zap-Pay will pop up in a banner) and start your charging session at the press of a button.

You can check on the status of your charge at any time to see the estimated cost and the charge time remaining. 

VAT receipts for all charging sessions are stored within the app, and can be accessed at any time to download to your device.


How to use Fastned charge points

Access to the Fastned network is made via Zap-Pay, Fastned’s app, or an RFID card from another provider such as NewMotion. Users register either, and payment is taken from the linked bank account after the charge.

Fastned also operates Autocharge, which requires users to register an account, but then automatically recognises cars connected on CCS, and starts the charging process automatically when you plug in the connector.

How does Fastned compare to other networks in terms of pricing?

Zapmap monitors the prices of charging on the public network and reports on the prices charged by the top 10* rapid charging networks. The prices are updated on a monthly basis here: Rapid Charging: Top 10 Network Pricing

The price to charge an electric vehicle (EV) on the public charging network can vary substantively, and prices are increasing due to current issues in the energy market.
Updated on a monthly basis, the Zapmap Price Index shows the difference in prices paid depending on the type of charger and will also track how this is changing over time.
