As a Charge Point Operator we do not provide charging cards ourselves. You can request a charging card at one of the MSPs in your region.

You can search for the top MSPs on the following websites. 

  The Netherlands: https://laadpastop10.nl/

  Germany: https://www.goingelectric.de/stromtankstellen/anbieter/

There could be multiple reasons for this. 

  • You have a new MSP card that is not yet activated. In this case, you need to contact your MSP to activate the card. 
  • Your MSP does not have a contract with Allego. Even though we accept cards from most MSPs this can be the case. Contact your MSP to check if your card is valid on the Allego network.
  • The new card is not yet registered at Allego. In this case, your MSP needs to send us the card information. 

Please contact us if the above is not the case and we are happy to help.

Charging with more power requires a more robust electricity supply. This is much more expensive both to buy and to run in comparison normal speed chargers. It also requires a different type of charger with more functionality than a normal speed charger.

We apply a standard rate for charging in public spaces, but this rate can nevertheless vary depending on location, depending on what the local municipality has paid to subsidize the charging service. This subsidy means that we are able to charge you as a driver a lower charging service price.


As soon as you have plugged your car into the charging station and logged in with your card or app, charging will begin.

The charging time of an electric vehicle depends on several factors: the current charge of the battery and the total capacity of the battery, the charging technology in the electric vehicle, the equipment and type of charging station available and the type of charging cable used. For example a BMW i3 with 11 kW AC charger charges up to 11 kWh per hour at an AC charging station with a three-phase charging cable. A single-phase charging cable only charges 3.7 kWh per hour.

If a non-electric car is parked at the parking lot which is reserved for an electric car, you should contact the responsible municipality to report the said matter.
