There are two zones within our service area. White zones and Red zones.
Within this zone, you can have your car delivered to you anywhere for a fee (currently £6.99). Once you are finished with the car you can return the car and park it in any public parking bay within this zone. You will be charged a small pick-up fee (currently £2.99) when you park and end your ride.
This zone is for where parking is not permitted after ending your ride, e.g. within the pick-up & drop-off zone at the train station, it is not possible for you or us to park and leave the cars. However, within this zone, you can have your car delivered to you for the same delivery fee (currently £6.99) as the White zones.
If you receive a PCN or another traffic fine during the hire (left on your car for example) you will need to pay for it directly following the instructions on the notice.
If Fetch receives a parking ticket/traffic fine for an infraction that happened during your rental we will either make a representation and pass on your details so you will receive the penalty directly at your address or, if we have to, we will pay for the fine directly and recharge you the amount on the card you used for the booking.

What do I do with the charging cable?
If the EV charging point does not have a cable attached, this means that the unplugged cable is portable and it belongs to the Electric Vehicle you are unplugging. It’s important to always take this cable with you once you have taken the vehicle off charge; the cable belongs to the car and not the charging point. They are expensive to replace so always check it has been stowed correctly in the boot compartment before setting off (for more information, follow the instructions in the guide which you will find inside each vehicle).
Depending on the charging point, you will need to use a suitable cable. The Kia E-Niro is equipped with three types of charging sockets: Type 2, Combo CCS and Domestic.
Charging times vary on the method used:
3-pin AC Charger –
Type 2 (62196-2) AC Charger –
AC Slow Charge Time (230V) – 27hrs 30mins
AC Fast Charger Time (7.2kW Charger) – 9hrs 25mins
AC Fast Charger Time (11kW 3-Phase Charger) – 6hrs 20mins
DC Rapid Charger Time (50kW Charger) – 1hr 5mins
DC Rapid Charger Time (100kW Charger) – 45mins
DC Rapid Charger Time (300kW Charger) – 43mins

How can I get the best out of the battery life?
The vehicle driving range all depends upon your driving style. Here’s how you can increase your driving range:
Maintain a steady speed.
Choose flatter routes – even if they are longer.
Use less heating and air conditioning.
Heat up or cool down your car before your journey, while it is still plugged into the mains.
Increase regenerative braking, which can be done via the shift paddles located behind the steering wheel.
If there are any warning lights on the dashboard, please get in touch with customer service. In cases where there is a red dashboard warning light, please stop the car at a safe location and contact the Fetch Customer Service team immediately on 01908714515
If your Fetch car has been vandalised, please call customer services immediately on 01908714515 and send a detailed description of the damage to email@example.com
Our cars are inspected and cleaned after every booking.
