Time to recharge? Visit the InstaVolt charging hub at Stroud Park this April and be in with a chance to WIN a rejuvenating weekend away in Iceland in our competition!

To celebrate the launch of our rapid EV charging hub in Stroud Park, Banbury – and our international expansion – we’re offering one lucky EV driver the chance to swap the UK for the geysers of Iceland!

To enter, simply snap a photo of yourself charging your EV at our Stroud Park Hub, and share it on social media using #BanburyToIceland or email your photos to [email protected] by April 30. We’ll pick a winner from all valid entries and announce them on our social channels!


The Prize

You and a friend could be jetting off to Iceland to see the sights, witness the incredible geysers and take a dip in the world-famous Blue Lagoon.

Our star prize includes:

  • Direct flights from the UK for two people to Keflavík International Airport with British Airways or Icelandair – offsetting all CO2 emissions
  • Three days, two nights’ accommodation at Courtyard by Marriott Reykjavik Keflavik Airport – Aðaltorg
  • EV car hire for the duration of your trip from Blue Car Rental
  • And, of course, EV charging throughout the trip courtesy of InstaVolt – powered by 100% renewable energy from the country’s geothermal power plants.


Stroud Park, Banbury – Your Go-To Rapid EV Charging  

Our Banbury EV charging hub at Stroud Park features 32 rapid chargers, getting you back on the road quicker than ever when travelling along the M40. Plus, if you use the InstaVolt app, you’ll get 10x Volts reward points when you charge there!

Situated on the M40, our largest charging hub features 16 120kW rapid chargers, eight 125kW rapid chargers and eight 150kW ultra-rapid chargers.

At our hub, you’ll find refreshments and facilities from Costa Coffee where you can pick up a coffee or something to eat while you wait – by the time you’re at the bottom of your latte, you’ll be ready to hit the road again!

The launch of the site’s second expansion saw us energise our 1,000th charger – meaning we’re well on our way to our goal of activating over 10,000 EV rapid chargers across our network by 2029.
