Have you considered driving to your holiday destination instead of flying? Or would you be up for swapping your holiday vehicle for an electric one? Not only is road-tripping fun but it also helps cut down emissions. The current EV charging network is already so extensive that it enables traveling around Europe with electricity.

Trying out an electric car during a holiday can spice up your holiday. EVs are, after all, not just greener but cooler, faster and more silent. Some people say that the first time driving an EV feels like going around with a spaceship. 🚀

The number of charging service providers in Europe is vast, but one magic trick helps when it comes to driving around: Say hello to roaming. Roaming enables EV drivers to travel around with just one customership. Virta customers can charge at tens of thousands of charging stations across Europe.

We thought that it’s time to put the roaming networks to the test and show you how easy it is to take a road trip with an electric car.

In July 2019, adventurer Joonas Linkola and photographer Krista Ylinen traveled around Switzerland with a stunning Mercedes Benz EQC.

They embarked on this road trip on the 16th of July 2019, and their journey has been documented on our Instagram account, where you can check all the beautiful places they’ve visited.

Joonas Linkola is a creative producer, social media influencer and traveler from Finland. He is passionate about storytelling, photography and nature. His stunning pictures and videos about nature and traveling interest over 134 000 followers around the world.
