EV charging stations

I plan on getting a Tesla X this year, and i know that i will be looking for hotels, and vacation spots,etc. that have EV charging stations, and will probably plan my trips according to them, would be nice to have a guide to list those charging stations so i could plan in advance.

There's been a long-running thread on this. TA can add it if they want to, but I really don't think they're equipped to handle keeping the information accurate and up to date. I think using the AAA app/website would yield much better results.

For the money you'll be shelling out, I'd expect Tesla to provide you with a list/app, and update you regularly.

Hello Paul A and welcome to the forums. Should you feel adventurous, if you click on the link below, you will go directly to the thread that exterior_corridors mentioned:

tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g1-i12104-k6206166…

Bottom line is that TA goes with the majority, and as much as EV owners like to think that 'electric transport toys' are taking over the world . . . the truth is that they are a very very small minority of travelers. Really, really small percentage. Infinitesimally small.

LOL Jenazz, love it :-)

Don't get me wrong, hB, I love the idea of electric cars (and other alternative fuel vehicles). But yeah, at this point in time it's just not statistically significant enough. Hopefully that will change.

Also, my envy of Paul A might be showing... :-)

I've talked to AAA about "Charging station" listings, and while the "RV Parks" books are a great resource for planning ahead, I humbly submit that the TripAdvisor SITE and APP are quite a bit more er, "agile" in their online presence and an obvious place for travelers to look to quickly compare hotels. Charging capability is VERY important to know, even if it's a note about the property having a 20A plug near a parking spot that management is willing to let a patron use.
