And remember not to drive until the last minute before charging! There's always the possibility that a charging station won't work or that the right plug is missing. So make sure you have enough time and margin to charge without stress.

Charging time

Don't be put off by the charging time of an electric car, as it actually offers opportunities for a relaxing and enjoyable break during your trip to your rented holiday home with a pool! In fact, besides charging your car, you can also plan a delicious lunch during your charging break.

Each country has different regulations for using charging stations. So it is important that you are aware of the local regulations to avoid any surprises during your drive to your holiday home in the South of France. Here are a few key points to keep in mind:

Charging cards: France has several charging networks and providers, so it is useful to research beforehand which charging passes or apps are most common and best suit your needs. Not all charging passes that work in your home country are also valid abroad. So take several charging passes with you to be well prepared!

Type of charging points: In France, the European Type 2 charging protocol (Mennekes) is used for AC charging, and the CCS (Combined Charging System) or CHAdeMO standard for DC fast charging. Make sure your electric car is compatible with these charging standards and that you have the right charging cables or adapters with you.

Remember these points for a smooth and enjoyable car journey to your holiday home. Once you've arrived, you can charge your vehicle as you wish using the electric charging point at your holiday home.

Bon voyage!

So go on an adventure with your electric car in beautiful France, but make sure you are well prepared and have all the necessary information to fully enjoy your trip!
