From late 2020, the government ruled that all new electric car charge points must take credit cards in the same way as automated petrol pumps do.

The good news, then, is that electric car charging points do take card payments. You can now turn up and pay via credit or debit card, without having to register for an access card first.

However - some older charge points might not have switched over yet. Also, you sometime pay more for swiping your debit card than if you signed up to a providers scheme.
