Electric charging, tips for on the go

Of course, your car also indicates where the electric charging stations in France are, when you need to charge and at which charging point you can go. Sometimes the computer even indicates how busy it is at a charging point. Is there no space? Then your computer will give you an alternative. An alternative may also be to leave the highway. Are you planning to drive to France with a stopover or overnight stay? Then plan your trip in such a way that you can charge your car at that location.

During your drive to one of our holiday parks in the Dordogne, Aquitaine-Gironde or the South of France you will pass beautiful sights. If you do stop to charge your electric car, we have some suggestions. How about a stop near Paris? Go to Disneyland Paris for a day. The children will love it there. Are you going to Dordogne or Aquitaine? Then we recommend  visiting Oradour-sur-Glane: an impressive spectacle for anyone interested in the events of the Second World War. Are you going to Provence? Then make an (extra) stop in Luxembourg, Dijon, Lyon or Montélimar. The latter city is of course known for the production of nougat.

More tips for a comfortable ride

If you are going to France by electric car and want to travel relaxed, we have some tips for when you stop to charge.

  • Stop at a landmark.
  • Opt for lunch or dinner on the terrace and take a walk whilst your car recharges.
  • Get off the highway and drive on the national roads. You do not pay toll here and there are also plenty of fast chargers.
  • Avoid driving on black Saturday. On other days the traffic is quieter. This makes the drive down a lot better.
  • It is more convenient to drive in cooler weather, because you won’t need to use air conditioning.
