In some instances, pricing may be different from the above. Please check below for more information.

Some public charging stations are operated but not owned by Mer. Different owners can mean different prices. How to find out how much I will pay?

  1. Visit the Mer Connect UK App or Driver Portal
  2. Enter/select the charge point you’d like to charge at
  3. Check the price

Roaming customers using our charging network, please check the prices applicable to you with your electric mobility service provider (EMSP)

Workplace charging is dependent on the price set by the charge point owner and may vary. Please check the Mer Connect UK App or speak to your workplace for local pricing.

Pre-authorisation fee

We put a holding charge on your card to make sure you have the necessary funds to use our public network. This does not cost you anything and the charge never leaves your bank account, but it may temporarily show as a pending payment. This charge is held by your bank, not Mer, and therefore how long it is held depends upon your bank provider.

Contactless payment receipt

Receipts for contactless payments can be downloaded here. For payments via Apple Pay or Google Pay, enter the last 4 numbers of the virtual card stored within your phone wallet.


To ensure our charge points are available to as many customers as possible, we may charge an overstay fee.  The overstay fee is applied after a grace period when a vehicle is connected and not charging. To find out if there is an overstay fee, select the charger in the App or Driver Portal (charging map).

Overstay Fees:

Charge points up to 22kW: £0.05/min (8am-8pm)
Charge points from 25kW: £0.20/min

Partners & Roaming

We work with a range of partners to provide you with the best charging experience – this includes setting up roaming agreements with other charge point operators so that you can access with ease as wide a network as possible through us, without having the need to have multiple accounts and Apps. We also want to make charging as straightforward as possible for our various partners and their customers, by giving them hassle-free access to our network.
