Hotel manager Bodil Langerak in Fevik thinks it’s as natural to offer guests electric car charging as to provide Wi-Fi. Never before have there been more destination chargers available for people on the go.
We start with a call:
Remember to check shipping options for where you’ll be spending the night or vacationing this summer. It’s easier, time-saving, and often cheaper than express shipping. It is also healthier for the battery than fast and frequent charging.
The good news is that with Ladeklubben you, as a member of the Electric Vehicle Association, can charge the destination at 3,700 charging points across Norway.
Use the Ladeklubben app to find your nearest regular charging point and charging rate. Easily start charging with the blue charging slide or directly in the app.

One charging chip, easy payment and thousands of charging stations.
Remember to pack the cable with type 2
There’s nothing quite like starting your road trip with a fully charged battery as you move on to your next vacation destination. You avoid extra downtime at the express charger and save time and money.
So-called destination charging is in many ways similar to home charging – it uses a charging box from 3 to 22 kilowatts of charging power.
You’re using the charging cable you brought with you with a Type 2 charging connector, so you’ll have to remember to take it with you on the trip if it’s not already “in” in the car.
Before you start charging, it’s a good idea to know how much it costs. Here there can be significant price differences between shipping companies.

More and more Norwegian hotels and tourist destinations are introducing visitor fees.
Between Arendal and Grimstad lies Beach Vivek Hotel In a small cove with a white sandy beach. Here are eight Kople destination chargers as well as two Tesla chargers.
Bodil Langerak, who has been the hotel’s manager for nearly six years, has seen great development these years with more and more guests arriving in electric vehicles.
– Providing our guests with electric car chargers is as natural as providing Wi-Fi, says Langrac.
I realized during the first year of the pandemic that they had to upgrade. Until then, they had an old fashioned power outlet in the wall.
– We thought we should have new cargo boxes for next season, says Langrac.
As he thought, it was done. They started the process, and in 2021 the new facility was ready.
It’s all about making the guests happy, she adds.
The hotel does not have to handle anything related to shipping boxes. If technical problems arise, the shipping companies will sort them out.
Many people will be traveling on Norwegian holidays this year, and it’s a smart, sustainable choice.

Guest reviews indicate that they are very satisfied with the show. This year, the hotel manager expects a major breakthrough.

NHO Reiseliv I reported before the weekend that the proportion of Norwegians who choose to holiday in Norway has increased after the pandemic.
This year, 65 percent reported that they would be tourists in their own country – compared to 58 percent in 2019.
– Many people will be traveling on Norway holidays this year, and it’s a smart and sustainable choice. This is of course a trend we’re living with here at the spa hotel, says Langerac.
The hotel manager at Fevik feels the drop-shipping chain gives them a competitive edge against hotels that can’t offer destination charges.
