For those of us who got an Etron this year, remember if you setup the transit contract via Audi charging you get 12m free ( £17pm if continued) set up before end of Dec , then the further £150 credit.

Even better (although a bit cheeky) is that Genie Point chargers don't seem to be knocking money off my balance using the eCS RFID card :) I've used it about 5 times and still have £150 credit.

What discounts does this give you I'm struggling to find it on the Audi page.

The main benefit is the £150 free charging credit (I hope they still do this for you). You also get 12 months free on the Transit tariff and a reduced price on Ionity after you've used your credit.

I'm looking at 2nd hand and cannot see if I would get the years free subscription. I also can't see what the prices are after discount to see if it's worth the money.

Oh fair enough. Probably only for new cars. To be honest the tariff probably not worth paying for in my opinion. Unless you'll be using Ionity a lot to out-weigh the cost of the tariff at around £17p/m. Probably best to work out what trips you'll regularly make, what brand of chargers you'll drive by and if you can fill-up at home. This will give you an idea of whether to subscribe to a certain brand or just PAYG. Whilst the e-tron is a lovely car, it's heavy and fairly inefficient compared to some.

I'd you're on the Transit tariff and start a charge on an Ionity machine with your EVs card, then it should only charge you at 28p/kWh and presumably you'd either lose some credit (if applicable) or get invoices the following month.

So I collect a Sportback on the 28th. Seems I will get the Audi Charge for a year and possibly the £150 credit too. Thought I would add this for anyone that stumbles across this thread.

FYI, the £150 credit will last 3 years, but the access to the tariff is only free for 1. You'd need to be doing a lot of public charging to get sufficient benefit to make the charging service worth £16.81 a month.

Good point. I've started to use some of my credit (expire 19th August) rather than paying at home. Probably won't get a chance for a decent road trip before the 1st year anniversary, so it would be a shame to lose it and I won't be renewing the Transit tariff as no benefit to me personally.

Only for new cars. And frustratingly from MY2020 onwards - the nice Audi team informed me that my 2019 car wasn't eligible...not really the early adopter reward I was looking for, especially after I have helped them iron out pretty much every known fault on the car...

Will a moving to city tariff after the ffee 12m transit deal preserve the balance ?

I am in the frustrating situation that I mistakenly activated my free 12 month transit subscription 6 months earlier than I would have liked. This has now meant that my transit subscription has ended last week with £85 of credit balance now stranded. My intention/hope is that I can sign up for a single month of city membership in August so that I can use the balance for our summer holiday roadtrips.

Do you think this will work? ie paying for a single month of (cheaper) city membership to regain access to the £85 credit?

Why not ask them on the WhatsApp concierge service?
