Trip to Scotland
My recent trip to Scotland left a lot to be desired. The first mistake was I didn’t realise I needed the app to charge etc as Northern Ireland is still free. The staff on the phone rather nicely let me start charging and I went to a cafe for WiFi downloaded app etc. Next stop Dunfermline spent ages trying to locate the charger then on the app trying to start it eventually had to ring again and they couldn’t get it started . Staff on the phone weren’t as helpful this time and told me they weren’t a helpline to locate the next nearest working charger!!!! I was eventually directed to a rapid charger in an industrial park 5miles out. Next charger in Falkland wouldn’t give my cable back had to ring again. On way back to ferry planned to go to Glasgow get a rapid charge and avoid fast chargers. First one out of order. Second one wouldn’t start so rang helpline again asking for directions to a third and could they check if it was working again not that helpful until I said your faulty system is going to make me miss my ferry that I got a little support. Was able to get a third in the direction of the ferry working not an overall great experience of Scotland’s charging system . Luck I did stop as rd works on the way back had the rapid charger near girvan blocked.
Payment registration failure, can’t start charge.
First time I used the app I needed to get my car charged quickly for a work trip. Plugged in car, found charge point in the app, selected option to start charging. App displayed a payment registration page, I duly entered new card details and it responded with card successfully registered. Entered CVV number and selected register card, app responded with Sorry, but your payment registration failed: No suitable account was found for this transaction.
I then couldn’t check the card details, there’s no option to edit or delete registered cars.
I re-entered my card details checking everything was correct as I went along. Same outcome. Checked the app account details, all appeared ok. Repeated a couple more times to no avail.
Deleted the app and reinstalled. App strangely retained my account details (presumably held off device). Repeated card registration process, same failure.
Logged on to ChargePlace Scotland web site and registered a direct debut to handle payments. Went back to app and tried to start a charge, couldn’t get past card registration screen, still got the same failure message.
I’m in Scotland where charging is free so this whole experience is laughable.
I went back to the ChargePlace Scotland web site and requested a new charge point card (£20), phoned their support and had them remotely start charge.
First time I ever tried to use this service provider. Customer services really good but overall service less than one star. Drove from London to Lewes and needed to charge. Only 1 DC charger in Lewes owned by these clowns. I did not have one of their RFID cards but wasn’t worried as I had checked with them before hand and was told I could download the App or pay by phone. I arrive in Lewes and attempt to pay by phone. It rang out twice with no one answering. Ok not a problem download the App. Downloaded the app. Filled out all the details submitted only to receive an error message!!! Phoned customer services. Response “ oh sorry about that our app is down we are trying to fix it. We can’t take payments over the phone and there is some data protection issue”. Customer services connected me free of charge but this pantomime took 25 minutes. Why can’t they all just take contactless payment cards everyone else does?
Get all of your passes, tickets, cards, and more in one place.
