Fuel payment firm Allstar has relaunched its Co-Pilot app with added EV charging payment capability.

Allstar Chargepass customers can register their card in the app to digitally pay for charging at most chargers on the Allstar network.

The app also allows drivers to locate nearby chargers, and receive real-time information on their availability.

The same app can also be used for traditional fuel payments.

Allstar Chargepass UK MD Ashley Tate said: “It’s our goal to make journeys as smooth and seamless as possible for our EV drivers. As such, upgrading the existing Allstar Co-Pilot app so customers can pay at more than 90% of chargepoints across our electric charging network while benefiting from its features and functionality only made sense.

“Payments is a constantly evolving space with new technologies emerging all the time, and the way people are making payments is changing too. 

“That’s why it was important to provide alternative payment methods with the additional functionalities that the revamped Allstar Co-Pilot app offers.”

Paul Holland, UK fleet MD for Allstar’s parent company Corpay, said: “While many businesses are in their transition to EV, there are some that are yet to begin but the collective understanding is that it is the present and future of motoring. 

“We have long held a reputation as providing an exceptional service for fuel customers and we are pleased to echo this with the Allstar Co-Pilot app for EV drivers. 

“It is able to support them wherever they are up to, if they have full EV, partial or are still entirely traditionally fuelled, and will continue to provide for them for years to come.”
