Instavolt, Osprey and, on motorways, to an increasing degree as they upgrade the network, Gridserve - these all take contactless payment routinely.

Podpoint app, because you'll find many of their destination 7kw chargers in supermarkets (and more examples now of their rapids)

Electric Juice card from Octopus as others have said - most of networks on there are little ones you may never encounter but they do cover Ionity (who you would only use in an emergency because of the eye watering price) and Osprey (which gives you another option if your contactless card fails to authenticate)

As Todor says, it depends on what chargers cover your normal routes but my policy is to only use those that accept contactless payment as that is the standard we should be forcing them all to adopt. Fortunately, the ones that take contactless routinely above are also the ones that prove to be most reliable and come top of the ratings surveys. I'd only use others in an emergency. Saves a lot of grief.

You do need a good 'find a charger' app though. ZapMap is top dog, but check out A better route planner (ABRP) or Plug Share.
