APARCAR APP

Aparcar allows EV charging at the official charge points. Users have to register their cars as electric vehicles.

Then, they may choose Blue Area parking payment or EV charge. They just have to select “start recharging” and the vehicle they want to recharge, and then scan the QR code found on the charging point to open the plug cover and start the recharging.

This service is totally free.
