not exactly supercharger related, but I wonder if anyone can help - I am expecting my Model 3 within the next month or two and I have a question about "destination charging". Tesla website makes Supercharger pricing perfectly clear, but how much does "Tesla destination charging" cost? Is the the same cost across the whole country? Is it free? What about "destination charging" in continental Europe? Same price as UK? Free? Does it vary from one location to another"?
Short answer is that it varies from one location to another and pricing, if any, is decided by the host. Also many locations are for customers/patrons only so for this reason I'd check before plugging in. Destination chargers should all be listed in the Nav with location and contact details so you can phone ahead and check arrangements. I've only ever used one once at Parc-y-Scarlets in Llanelli, that one happens to be available to all and free to use (but you need to know if a match is being played!).Destination charging is AC only, the intention was always that it is free (as the business owners get these units provided by Tesla for free), however I see some business owners ask a fee. My suggestion would be to plug yourself in and ask.
As @Slammer says the units are provided to the business by Tesla for free so those that charge a fee for their use are being a bit tight. On the flip side, rocking up to a small hotel/restaurant and expecting a free charge without paying for any of their services, even if it's just a drink or two, is also a bit cheeky. Personally in terms of the moral maze I view it a bit like using the toilet on the premises! So my preference would be a free charge offered to customers (who are paying for food/accommodation etc.) but this certainly isn't a universal rule.
