Electric car drivers will get a 75 per cent reduction in drop-off charges at London’s Luton Airport as part of a new trial.
Until September 30, drivers will pay £2 for 30-minute drop-offs and pick-ups (stays over that length will not be discounted).
Electric vehicles won’t use the normal drop-off zone, instead being directed to the nearby multi-storey car park (not the further away mid- and long-term car parks) which normally costs £8 for 30 minutes’ parking.
Drivers will also be able to use the charging points on level 2 for free while they wait.
The usual price in the drop-off zone is £4 for 13 minutes and £1 a minute after.
The airport says that if the trial is “successful” the reduced rate will be brought in on a permanent basis.
