Through the Tesla Destination Charging Program, Tesla owners across Europe can charge at their favorite hotels, restaurants, and other local businesses.
This is outstanding news, but even better is the fact that Tesla is still expanding the network at an impressive rate. The company is forecasting hundreds more installations in the next few months.
According to Tesla:

“Destination Chargers add up to 60 miles (100 km) of range per hour, enough time for owners to ski or shop while their vehicles recharge.”

The charging network is in addition to the well-known Supercharger network. It offers standard wall chargers at hotels and resorts, restaurants, and other places of business. Tesla points out that in the U.K. it has over one hundred recent installations including marinas, an opera venue, a popular theme park, and several shopping malls, along with all of the usual locations.
Tesla developed the Tesla Destination Charging Program to help reduce customer anxiety, by providing them a "home away from home" charging system. The Supercharger network is intended for travelers, due to the station locations and the fact that the chargers work quickly. Europe is home to 270 Supercharger stations, with a total of 1,800 Superchargers.
