More information on charging costs in the UK can be found here. *Tariff holds for both national and international charging, incl VAT. You’ll only be charged for the electricity you use. As soon as you start charging, your bank pre-authorises (reserves) £20 to ensure it’s available for you to pay with. If you have mobile banking, you may see this amount pop up. When you finish charging, we tell your bank the real amount you spent, they deduct it, and arrange to unreserve the pre-authorised amount. This process can take a few minutes to a few days depending on who you bank with. But if you pay with the Shell Recharge app, there is no pre-authorisation, instead you will receive a monthly invoice to pay with the debit/credit card you have registered your Shell Recharge account against.
