Overstay Fee for European HPC Chargers

Allego will charge an overstay fee for all High-Power Chargers (HPC) of our European stations network starting July 1st, 2024. This program aims to reduce waiting times for all EV vehicles and promote the effective use of our HPC chargers.

Details of Overstay Fee 

  • Start Time: The overstay fee will begin after 45 minutes of charging.
  • Rate: Besides the standard kWh price, there will be an overstay fee of 25 cents (VAT including) per minute. View the table below for the specific rates for each country.

Why an Overstay Fee? 

This fee ensures all EV drivers have fair and timely access to charging stations. With the rapid growth of the EV market and increasing demand for charging infrastructure, chargers must be used efficiently. The overstay fee aims to prevent prolonged charging sessions that occupy chargers longer than necessary, ensuring a more equitable distribution of resources.

To illustrate, charging from 10% to 80% state of charge (SOC) on a 70 kWh battery typically requires about 45 minutes, assuming an average charging speed of 65 kW. This duration is a reasonable benchmark based on current EV vehicle capabilities.

The overstay fee will apply to all Allego-owned HPC chargers across Europe, including new markets such as Spain, Switzerland, and Lithuania.

By implementing this overstay fee, Allego aims to enhance the fair availability of charging capacity, promote efficient use of charging infrastructure, and mitigate the increasing delays in installing new chargers and stations due to grid constraints in many European countries.

Detailed Overstay Fee Structure Per Country

Tasa por exceso de estancia para cargadores de corriente alterna en los Países Bajos


A partir del 1 de marzo de 2024, se aplicará una tasa de 0,25 euros (IVA incluido) a los cargadores de CA de su red de recarga abierta para hacer frente a las sesiones de recarga que se prolonguen más de lo debido. La tasa se aplicará desde la primera hora y se aplicará cada hora que el coche esté conectado a un cargador de CA Allego en los Países Bajos.

Los conductores que utilizan cargadores públicos deben compartir estos espacios con otros usuarios de vehículos eléctricos (VE) y una queja creciente ha sido la de cargadores que están ocupados mucho más allá del tiempo de carga necesario. En algunos casos, este exceso de tiempo se prolonga durante unas horas y, a menudo, durante varios días seguidos. Otros conductores de VE se ven entonces desplazados u obligados a cargar en momentos menos oportunos. En colaboración con los ayuntamientos y a petición de los conductores afectados, Allego quiere atajar el problema aplicando una tasa por exceso de tiempo.
