Even though the effects of Covid-19 are unfortunately very drastic for the entire tourism industry, EmobilHotels – a new information and hotel platform – hit the green zeitgeist of hoteliers and thus also of guests in early summer last year. More than 1,000 hotels with charging stations in the Alps and the Alpine foothills can now be found on the platform, over 300 of them with high-quality premium entries that describe and illustrate the hotel and the available charging stations in detail. From now on, users can also enter their personal favourite hotels with charging facilities on the website themselves. In this way, new hotels are added daily, which are already looking forward to welcoming guests again soon. In this way, the community of electric travellers can help itself to list suitable accommodation for a holiday with an e-car.
Unique platform presents hotels with charging stations
In one year, the portal has grown considerably. The positive feedback from users suggests that the range and number of hotels will also grow steadily. They all offer one or more charging stations for electric and plug-in hybrid cars. These establishments are thus ideally equipped when e-mobile travellers are allowed to set off on holiday again and want to explore the Alpine region.
The platform’s offer is already far-reaching. From the cosy South Tyrolean Bed & Breakfast to the 5-star superior domicile in the Swiss Alps, everything is included. This diversity is also reflected in the target group. EmobilHotels is aimed at e-car enthusiasts who want to spend a wellness or activity holiday in the Alps, or who want to stop off on their day trip where they can find a charging point. On EmobilHotels, a suitable offer can already be found for every demand. Among the participating hotels that support electromobility in a contemporary way are numerous renowned establishments, such as the Stanglwirt in Austria, The Chedi Andermatt in Switzerland, the Hotel Milla Montis in South Tyrol and the Sonnenalp Resort in Bavaria.
Optimistic about the future
After last year, it is clear that many holiday habits are changing. Thanks to the global rethink on climate protection, coupled with the current travel restrictions, one trend in particular can be clearly identified: Holiday stays in the Alps and the Alpine foothills are experiencing an upswing. As a local recreation area for young and old, those seeking relaxation, families and active holidaymakers will find a varied holiday region here. Lots of fresh air, breathtaking landscapes and warm hospitality are all included. Travelling to the mountains by electric car is becoming increasingly uncomplicated thanks to the ever greater range of the “electric cars” and the expansion of fast-charging stations along the motorways. But guests don’t even have to travel with their own electric car to enjoy electric driving fun against a magnificent Alpine backdrop. A fully electric rental vehicle or the train also offer a sustainable alternative to the combustion engine. Numerous EmobilHotels offer electric cars for rent on site. The Alps can be explored in a comfortable, stress-free and environmentally friendly way.
Fill up with energy – for you and your car
On EmobilHotels, interested parties will find a clear and well-structured website, as well as a wide selection of hotels with charging stations in the Alpine region. When searching for the perfect hotel in the Alpine region with e-charging stations, users can filter by region and plug type. A hotel description and selected pictures of the respective hotel give a first impression and provide information about the location, the offer, as well as highlights of the hotel and its surroundings. Another special feature of the website is the detailed description of the charging options and the clearly arranged charging plug icons. The e-cars for rent can also be found easily via the search filter. Users can also find the latest hotels via the news page. EmobilHotels makes electric mobility more attractive for holidaymakers and business travellers and shows guests how easy and sustainable it can be to travel by electric car.
