I usually drive low-mileage runs and could easily charge an electric car at home.
But what happens when I go on holiday? I charge the car at home, drive to an airport, then leave the car in a car park for 2-3 weeks. Assume the airport is something like 50-100 miles from home, so the trip uses around a quarter or half of the battery capacity. (I’m deliberately not specifying a model, as I haven’t even decided to buy electric, yet.)
The car park operator will not charge the car just before I return. I did ask an off-airport company and they said they had ‘no plans to provide charging facilities’.
I would not like to return on a long flight only to find my car not ready to get me home. Even worse would be if the car would not even start.
Has anyone considered this problem? Are there any workarounds?
EDIT Thanks for the interesting answers
I am unable to mark an answer as 'correct', I haven't even decided on an EV. This is not to say the answers are not correct, just that I cannot accept. I have up-voted.
Regarding the comment about taxis, I am in UK. I have quotes for £40 in an offsite car park near Birmingham (BHX) for three weeks; and for a taxi (one-way) for £65.
