Cornwall Tourists Have EV Charge Points On Their Mind

People coming on holiday to Cornwall will have a list of amenities they require when booking their holiday accommodation.

These include among others, parking, good WiFi, easy self check-in accessibility, and EV charging points.

In this blog we will look at these main amenities and how they can help you to increase your bookings.


On-site parking, ideally with close access to the holiday-let, is something that people will look for when booking.


Self check-in access:

Cornwall holiday guests like to have flexibility when arriving and leaving their accommodation, so an easy self check in and out system is definitely a big advantage.


WiFi at Your Holiday-Let:

In this day and age, technology and digital accessibility are considered holiday-let essentials.

WiFi is necessary for any modern holiday-let. Unless your rental is specifically off-grid and catering to a “technological getaway”, your guests will expect WiFi as part of their package.

In fact, not having a fast wireless internet connection could actually deter guests from booking with you, or result in a negative review if it isn’t explicitly mentioned beforehand.

When having broadband installed in your Cornish holiday-let, there are ways you can add WiFi extenders in multiple rooms so that the strength is as good in all rooms.

We can help you with this.

EV Charging For Your Holiday-Let:

Electric vehicles are the future and it’s becoming more and more common for guests to bring or rent these cars while on holiday.

By installing an EV charging station at your holiday-let, you’re not only leading the way for the future of holiday rentals, but you’re also setting yourself up for the “wow factor” for your guests.

Be one of the few Cornwall holiday-let owners to offer such an innovative amenity!

You can choose to either measure the cost of the kWh (kilowatt per hour) used or mark up your base rate to counter the expense of EV charging and make an extra income.

For this you can add App software which your guests can access to pay for their charge via their mobile phone, this is a really effective way of managing your charging and is relatively hassle free.

Either way, it will be a huge perk for guests!

'We used NSN Electrical when we had our house renovated and were really impressed with the quality of the work and the professional work ethic of their installers. We have used them for all our electrical needs for domestic and work ever since. Nick one of the installers was very neat and tidy and has gone above and beyond for us on many occasions. 
Would highly recommend.'

Frequently asked questions

Do I need to have battery storage with solar panels?

You don’t need to have a battery for your solar PV panels to work. However, the battery energy storage allows you to use more of the energy you generate in your home rather than exporting it back to the grid, which could save you money.

Do storage heaters need servicing?

No, but they may need upgrading to become the most efficient type of heating for your home. Old storage heaters have been discontinued and replaced with a new much more efficient heater that works on the off-peak supply.

Do you charge a call out charge?

We have 3 simple levels to our call-out charge:

Priority – Engineer to be with you within 3 working days.

Same day call-out – Engineer to be with you that same working day if within our opening hours.

Out of hours call-out – Engineer to be with you out of working hours including weekends.

We charge a call-out fee to cover the first hour of labour for each of these options. All hours of work after this are charged at the standard rate.

Our call-out charges rise from priority up to out of hours call-out.
