Parkopedia has expanded their collaboration with Škoda by building on the success of the existing Pay to Park service, by introducing the new Pay to Fuel service into Škoda vehicles. This innovative service enhances the convenience of post-refueling payments for Škoda drivers, allowing them to save time by seamlessly completing transactions directly through the car’s infotainment system. Currently available in six European countries (check the current list here), Škoda has plans to extend the service to additional countries and fuel stations in the near future.

The stations supporting Pay to Fuel are listed in the in-car navigation. After choosing one of these, the vehicle automatically recognises the fuel station upon arrival. The driver opens the app on the vehicle’s display, confirms the petrol station and enters the pump number. After refuelling, the amount of fuel is confirmed on the infotainment screen and the payment is processed via debit or credit card. All common cards are accepted. The driver then receives a transaction notification in the MyŠkoda app and on the vehicle screen and can pull away. 

Available for all Škoda ICE vehicles with Amundsen or Columbus infotainment systems 

In addition to an up-to-date Amundsen or Columbus infotainment system with a touchscreen of 9.2 inches or larger, the service requires an active Škoda Connect account with the Remote Access feature enabled. Using the MyŠkoda smartphone app, users enter and verify their payment card once. Pay to Fuel is available for all Škoda ICE model series sold in European markets. The service is provided in collaboration with Parkopedia, Mastercard and the German FinTech company ryd.

Different countries, different networks, one app

Pay to Fuel is currently available in Belgium, Denmark, Luxembourg, Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. Portugal and Spain will follow soon. There are also plans to launch the service in the Czech market. 

Commenting on the new service, Markus Dohl, VP of Sales & Business Development Europe at Parkopedia, said: “We are pleased to expand our services with Škoda Auto and continue to deliver industry-leading in-car payments for their drivers. Drivers benefit from a seamless and secure payment process across all available services, accessed directly through the vehicle’s infotainment system, without having to leave the vehicle, use third-party mobile apps or re-enter payment details for each transaction. Pay to Fuel simplifies the process of fuel payments, making it just as convenient as our existing Pay to Park service which has been well received by Škoda customers since launch.
