  • Charging an electric vehicle

    Park the vehicle and switch off the engine. Retrieve the charge card from the back of the key holder. Alternatively, it can be found on the side of the dashboard, to the right of the steering wheel (please note that this may only be visible when the driver's side door is open). Hold the pre-paid charge card up to the EV charging port reader. Some vehicles may have a charging cable attached, if it doesn’t a cable can be located securely inside the car then lift the port cover and plug in the charger.

    Other useful information:

    -          There are three main types of EV charge point (slow, fast and rapid) as well as a number of charging connectors, some of which are suitable for a particular EV.

    -          You can use Zap-map.com to find your nearest or plan your journey, but you can also see what type of charging point is where.

    - The vehicle charge port is unlocked in different ways depending on the cars make and model. These include using a button on the dashboard or manually open the fuel cap. This information can be found within the vehicle guide or within the Enterprise Car Club app.

    - All Enterprise Car Club cars use a type 2 charger watch the How To Charge An Electric Vehicle to find out more; click here.

    - You can check if the vehicle is charging by looking for the corresponding light on the dashboard

  • Unplugging an electric vehicle

    Retrieve the charge card from the back of the key holder or on the side of the dashboard to the right of the steering wheel. Hold this card up to the card reader on the charging port and remove the charging cable from the both the charger and vehicle charging ports. Some charging cables are fixed to the charger in which case just removed from the vehicle, however, if the charging cable can be disconnected from both ports it will belong to the vehicle and must be gathered then securely stored inside the vehicle. Ensure all ports are covered are securely closed before leaving the charger.

  • Fuelling the vehicle

     Park the car and switch off the ignition. Retrieve the fuel card from the back of the key holder. Alternatively, it can be found on the side of the dashboard, to the right of the steering wheel (please note that this may only be visible when the driver's side door is open). Check whether the vehicle takes petrol or diesel and fill up the vehicle as normal. After you have refuelled the vehicle, take a note of the current mileage on the dashboard, and use the pre-paid fuel card at the kiosk to pay.

    Members will need to enter a unique 4-digit PIN when using the card at petrol stations. You’ll no longer receive the unique 4-digit PIN number for the fuel card in your booking confirmation email. Now, the PIN number will be easily found in the 'Important Information' section of the Enterprise Car Club app. This is found by selecting your reservation, where you will see the Important Information section. This information will be updated with the vehicle’s fuel card PIN once your reservation has begun’.

    If you're still unable to find your pin number, please email helpdesk@enterprisecarclub.co.uk. For optimised security these codes will regularly change so please refer to this email with each new booking. Once paid, return the fuel payment card to the computer in the glovebox, or the holder on the dashboard, along with the receipt.

    Please note you cannot use Pay At Pump with our cards.

    Please look to use standard fuel, not premium where possible.

    We ask our members to return the vehicles with at least a quarter tank of fuel for the convenience of the next member.

    Please note that fuel card has a limit of £80 per transaction. Numerous transactions are permitted, however there is a daily limit of £150. If you exceed this limit (even slightly) when refuelling at a petrol station, you will not be able to use the card.
