Other networks (Porsche / BMW / Audi) have negotiated tariffs for Ionity ranging between £0.30 - £0.40/kWh. Let's hope that Jaguar managed to do the same.
They are owners of Ionity... makes negotiations easier...
JLR is not a listed owner... we will see next week where the prices go 🙈

Going to have to rewatch your Inverness trip for peace of mind,
Raigmore Hospital has a Raption charger (ChargePlace Scotland) which works extremely well with the I-Pace.

Agree the Raigmore is a good one, bit daunting going through the automatic barriers but as published they do open for EV vehicles, must be a smart ANPR system. Also a real good one at the Tomatin community centre on the A9 just before Inverness, nice bakery and coffee. One CCS and a couple of 22kw units, free, another CCS at the Tomatin distillery but that’s a pay per use, bit too close to the distillery shop :D

The barriers must be new. They weren’t there last year when I used it.

The prices for Jaguar on Ionity will be £0.69 + 10% handling = £0.77p/kWh at the very least.
IMHO, their usage will drop to almost zero if it is cheaper to use Ionity directly. We shall have to see what the subsctiption rates are and what benefit they bring.
Driving "Hirundo Rustica" since 15th Mar 2019. Lovely Jubbly :D :D
S20C since 11th Dec 2020 Maps : whatever is current/can be bothered to download

The subscription rates are published on their website and have been for a couple of years. Only available to customers in mainland Europe, not U.K. customers.

The most annoying in this story is that Ionity does have the biggest network in most of Europe, I guess...

Out of curiosity I went and had a look at the nearest Ionity 350kW station.
Still listed at €8.80 flat fee for the moment with Jaguar Plugsurfing.
Checked with the variety of other apps that I've gathered (and never used), including Maingau (0.71), Shell Recharge (0.79), Chargepoint (0.65), regular (non-Jaguar) Plugsurfing (1.02!).

Did find an interesting bit of info though.
Regular (non-Jaguar) Plugsurfing offers a €7.79 per month subscription, 1-month commitment, that reduces the price to €0.508. More reasonable...

For anyone who hasn’t been able to find it, here are the Jaguar Plugsurfing subscription rates. Really irritates me to see that European customers can come to Britain and avail themselves of low prices but British customers can’t.

Given the small number of Ionity chargers outside the south of the country how would a subscription make sense for most of us anyway?

Isnt the BP rollout of 150kw chargers more likely to be useful in the UK?

You get those rates on all networks that accept PlugSurfing, not just Ionity.

Also, with Leeds, Perth and Gretna (and one under construction in Glasgow) there are a lot of people who could make good use of Ionity outside of the South of England.
