To learn more about pricing on the GRIDSERVE Electric Highway, please visit our pricing page here.
All chargers available on the GRIDSERVE Electric Highway accept contactless payment, making them accessible to all electric vehicle drivers.
There’s no need for an app or membership to charge with us.
Paying for your charging session with GRIDSERVE is easier than one, two, three.
To pay, simply tap your contactless card or device against the payment terminal, which supports Visa, Mastercard, Apple Pay, Google Pay and Samsung Pay.
We also accept fuel and membership cards such as Allstar One Electric, Allstar Visa, Mina Chargepass, Paua and Plugsurfing.
We are looking forward to launching a GRIDSERVE membership scheme and more details will be available soon.
Even after we launch our membership scheme, we’ll continue to offer contactless payment for all, so you will always be able to charge on the GRIDSERVE Electric Highway.
The GRIDSERVE app is coming soon and will provide lots of additional functionality that we hope you’ll love. We’re really looking forward to telling you more about it.
The price of energy on the GRIDSERVE Electric Highway varies depending on whether you choose AC or DC charging. All prices are calculated based on the cost per kilowatt-hour (kWh). You can check out our current pricing here.

We provide an online receipt portal for all our contactless payment customers.
Digital receipts become available to view and download three days after your charging session ends.
Our self-service receipt portal allows you to view, download or print your digital receipts at your own convenience.
Go to our receipt portal and have the following information handy:
The last 4 digits of your card number (Note that smart devices will have what is known as a virtual account number. See more information on this below)
The location of your charge session (Select the chosen EV charging location from the drop-down menu)
The amount of the transaction (You can get this information from your bank statement with our account listed as “GRIDSERVE UK OMM L”)
The date of your charging session (This will be the same date as your transaction)
A virtual account number or VAN is a uniquely generated set of numbers designed to represent and protect your debit/credit card number when using third-party payment apps such as Apple Pay and Google Pay.
If you used a smart device (mobile phone/smart watch/contactless ring) to pay for your charging session, you must provide the last 4 digits of the virtual account number on the device when using our receipt portal.
That’s because when a transaction occurs with a payment app on the GRIDSERVE Electric Highway, we only receive the virtual account number, not the linked debit/credit card.
Open the Pay app (Google Pay/Samsung Pay or other)
Select the card you used to pay with
Scroll down and look for the 4 digits of the virtual account number
Open the Wallet app and tap Apple Card
Tap the card you used to charge and then tap the circle with 3 dots in the right-hand corner of the screen
Look for the 4 digits of the virtual account number
