At elmo, our mission is to make it easy for you to go electric. As part of that, we want to be clear and transparent about our pricing. So here’s a handy overview of how it works…

Upfront payments

Our pricing is competitive with lease deals and, unlike those leases, we don’t charge a deposit and don’t require you to lock-in for a lengthy contract. But we do take some payments upfront at the point of booking.

  1. First Month of Subscription. When you book we’ll take a payment covering the first month of your subscription. Your future monthly payments from the second month will be taken by Direct Debit.
  2. Admin. We charge a one-off £95 admin fee for each new booking. This helps cover the set up costs for running a flexible subscription service.
  3. Delivery. We offer the first 50 miles for free and then £1 per mile after that. 

Standard Package Pricing

The standard package is the monthly price you see advertised for any car on our website. This includes:

  • Electric car hire
  • Comprehensive insurance cover
  • All scheduled maintenance & servicing
  • Breakdown cover
  • A carbon offset donation to account for manufacturing emissions

The standard package fee may vary depending on how long you choose to have the car and how many miles per month you need. The basic mileage allowance is 800 miles per month (though this rolls over so just needs to average at 800 miles per month for the period you have the vehicle).

We also add a surcharge to certain subscriptions:

  • £30pm if you live in Greater London or the West Midlands – this covers the additional costs for insuring, servicing and managing our fleet in these areas.
  • £10pm per additional driver you include in your subscription.

Customising your subscription

Once you’ve selected your standard electric car package, you can customise the subscription to include extra options and features according to your lifestyle and preferences. We currently offer:

  1. Home charge point – add an Ohme Charge point to your subscription for an upfront installation fee of £125 (subject to terms) and £76 a month on a 6 month subscription.
  2. Public charging membership – add unlimited access to the BP Pulse Network for £10 a month.
  3. Insurance excess waiver – reduce the insurance excess on your subscription for just £15 a month by chatting to our team. 

You can find more detailed information about each in our How it Works section.

At the End of your Subscription

Once you’ve given us 30 days’ notice to end your subscription, we’ll charge the remaining days on a pro rata basis based on your usual monthly payment.

Once your subscription has ended, we’ll send you a final invoice covering:

  • Collection. This is charged at the same rate as delivery (50 miles free then £1/mile).
  • Damages. The cost of any damage to the car beyond reasonable wear and tear.
