3. How to redeem the Free Miles Offer and your free miles credit

Claiming your free miles

3.1 To take advantage of this Free Miles Offer you must enter the order number given to you by VWG when you purchased the vehicle (your “Order Number”) when signing up to Charge Anytime.  If your order number corresponds to an eligible vehicle, we will apply your credit within 60 days of you adding Charge Anytime. Please note, you will be able to use Charge Anytime immediately after signing up, even if we have not yet validated and activated the Free Miles Offer yet.  If you forget to add your Order Number when you add Charge Anytime, you will have to contact us by emailing [email protected] in order for your credit to be applied.

3.2 If you are adding a second vehicle to your existing Charge Anytime account, and it is an Eligible EV for this Free Miles Offer, you will need to email [email protected] with your Order Number to claim your free miles.

Free miles credit

3.3 For the part of the Free Miles Offer providing up to 10,000 free miles, you will receive a one-off credit of £212.12 to your OVO account. £212.12 equates to 3030 kWhs at our current Charge Anytime rate of 7p per kWh, which is up to approximately 10,000 free miles of electric driving at a vehicle efficiency of 3.3 miles per kWh. The credit will be paid as a sum in pounds sterling added to your account and may equate to less than 10,000 miles driving in real life depending on the efficiency of your selected vehicle, the configuration, driving style and other variable factors.

For the part of the Free Miles Offer providing anniversary free miles, you will receive a one off credit of £21.21 within 30 days of each anniversary of the date you signed up to Charge Anytime.   The credit will be paid as a sum in pounds sterling added to your account and may equate to less than 1,000 miles driving in real life depending on the efficiency of your selected vehicle, the configuration, driving style and other variable factors. .

3.4 The mileage calculations are based on an average efficiency, weighted in line with brand Electric Vehicle volumes, of 3.3 miles per kWh across the Volkswagen Group model range (for all brands). Since this is an average, the efficiency of individual models may be less, which would mean you receive fewer than the maximum stated free miles. 

The efficiency figure is also based on standardised test data after the battery had been fully charged (to 100%) and may not reflect real world driving. Actual efficiency differs depending on multiple variables, including your selected vehicle and configuration, accessories fitted (post-registration), variations in weather, driving styles, route conditions, speed, vehicle age, battery age and temperature and vehicle load. 

The actual number of free miles you receive may be less than the maximum stated miles and will depend on the actual efficiency of your selected vehicle in the real world. 

Free Miles Offer is for an estimated number of free miles calculated on the basis of the costs to the customer when they ‘smart charge’  using Charge Anytime.

4. Fair usage policy

You agree to comply at all times with the Charge Anytime Terms and agree that you will principally charge your EV at the address registered on your OVO Energy account.  If OVO reasonably suspects you're not acting in accordance with this policy, we reserve the right to remove the Free Miles Offer and Charge Anytime, having attempted to contact you first.

5. Leaving OVO or cancelling Charge Anytime  

5.1 If you want to switch to a different supplier or cancel Charge Anytime, you will no longer be eligible to claim the Free Miles Offer. If you switch supplier, you may need to pay any exit fees associated with your plan. See our Core Terms for your rights to cancel your energy supply contract.

6. Where we can end or suspend this Free Miles Offer

6.1 We reserve the right to remove or temporarily suspend the Free Miles Offer if, in our reasonable opinion, we suspect any breach of these rules, the Charge Anytime terms or our Core Terms. 

6.2 If we deem in our discretion that a participant is ineligible for any reason, we reserve the right to cancel or recover any credit already awarded.

6.3 We reserve the right to amend the Free Miles Offer or withdraw the Free Miles Offer to new participants at any time.

6.4 In the event that for reasons beyond our reasonable control we are unable to award the offer, or we deem it appropriate to do so (in its reasonable discretion), we reserve the right to award an alternative of a similar nature and an equivalent value, or at our sole discretion, the cash value of the offer.

7. Changes to these Terms and this offer

We reserve the right to amend the Offer and these Terms on reasonable notice. Any amendments will be published on OVO's website or if any changes are made which are detrimental to you we will give you reasonable notice.

8. General

9. Governing Law

These Terms are subject to the laws of England and Wales and you submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England unless you’re a resident of Scotland, in which case you may also bring proceedings in Scotland.

3. How to redeem the VWG Beyond Offer and your free miles credit

Redeeming your free miles

3.1 The VWG Beyond Offer is automatically redeemed when you sign up to Charge Anytime with an Eligible EV and take up the VWG Charge Anytime Offer by giving us the order number given to you by VWG when you purchased the vehicle (your “Order Number”).  If your Order Number corresponds to an eligible vehicle, your enhanced miles will be applied to your account as a credit within 90 days. Note, the standard EV Saver miles and the Enhanced Miles may appear as two separate credits in your account. 

3.2 You are able to bank up to a maximum of 150 free miles a month or up to a maximum of 3,600 miles over 24 months. Your banked mileage will be shown in the OVO App at the standard 100 free miles.  The additional 50 miles per month will be applied at the point of you claiming this offer.  The miles must be redeemed within three (3) years from the end of the 24 month accrual period.   Once expired, the banked mileage will be lost.  

Free miles credit

3.3 The amount of credit you receive will vary depending on how many free miles you have banked and the current Charge Anytime rate at the time you redeem your free miles up to a maximum redemption value of 14p/kWh. Free miles "banked" will be credited as a sum in pounds sterling added to your account and may equate to less than the stated miles driving in real life depending on the efficiency of your selected vehicle, the configuration, driving style and other variable factors.

3.4 Up to 150 free miles a month or up to 3,600 free miles over 24 months  is calculated based on an average efficiency weighted in line with brand Electric Vehicle volumes, of 3.3 miles per kWh across the Volkswagen Group model range (for all brands). Since this is an average, the efficiency of individual models may be less, which would mean you receive fewer than the maximum stated free miles. 

The efficiency figure is also based on standardised test data after the battery had been fully charged (to 100%) and may not reflect real world driving. Actual efficiency differs depending on multiple variables, including your selected vehicle and configuration, accessories fitted (post-registration), variations in weather, driving styles, route conditions, speed, vehicle age, battery age and temperature and vehicle load. 

The actual number of free miles you receive may be less than the maximum 150 free miles a month or 3,600 free miles over 24 months and will depend on the actual efficiency of your selected vehicle in the real world. VWG Beyond Offer is for an estimated number of free miles calculated on the basis of the costs to the customer when they ‘smart charge’ using Charge Anytime.

3.5 As specified in 3.1,  the standard EV Saver miles and the Enhanced Miles may appear as two separate credits in your account. If this happens, the first credit for the standard EV Saver miles will be calculated at our standard EV Saver rate, which assumes that the average electric vehicle will require 1 kWh of charge for a distance of 4 miles (as opposed to 3.3 miles which is is the average efficiency, weighted in line with EV brand volumes across the Volkswagen Group model range (for all brands)). If this occurs, your second credit for the Enhanced Miles will include an adjustment to cover this difference.

4. Fair usage policy

You agree to comply at all times with the Charge Anytime Terms and agree to comply with the Charge Anytime fair usage policy including that you will principally charge your EV at the address registered on your OVO Energy account.  If OVO reasonably suspects you're not acting in accordance with this policy, we reserve the right to remove the Free Miles Offer and Charge Anytime, having attempted to contact you first.

5. Leaving OVO or cancelling Charge Anytime  

5.1 If you want to switch to a different supplier or cancel Charge Anytime, you will no longer be eligible to claim the VWG Beyond Offer. If you switch supplier, you may need to pay any exit fees associated with your plan. See our Core Terms for your rights to cancel your energy supply contract.

6. Where we can end or suspend this VWG Beyond Offer

6.1 We reserve the right to remove or temporarily suspend the VWG  Beyond Offer if, in our reasonable opinion, we suspect any breach of these rules, the Charge Anytime terms or our Core Terms. 

6.2 If we deem in our discretion that a participant is ineligible for any reason, we reserve the right to cancel or recover any credit already awarded.

6.3 We reserve the right to amend the VWG Beyond  Offer or withdraw the VWG Beyond  Offer to new participants at any time.

6.4 In the event that for reasons beyond our reasonable control we are unable to award the offer, or we deem it appropriate to do so (in its reasonable discretion), we reserve the right to award an alternative of a similar nature and an equivalent value, or at our sole discretion, the cash value of the offer.

7. Changes to these Terms and this offer
