    well, its quite similar to most of the words u listed up there, if you look them up in the dictionary u might be confused.

    fee: money you pay for goods or services. you exchange money for something.

    expense: kinda like "fee", but sometimes u dont get tangible returns.

    charge: in most cases, same as "fee"

    fare: usually "fare" is a cost involved transportation, like taxi,bus/ferry tickets, personally i prefer to use this word on public transit only.

    rate: has something to do with level, or range if you would, "rate" can also be used to indicate exact pricing or a range of prices.

    車子的費用將與您的房帳合併計算。

    the hotel room charge will also include your pickup from the airport.

    也許可以這麼說:

    The (cost of) transportation (from airport to hotel) will be added to your room rate.

    以免造成誤會讓客人以為房間價包括機場的接送費用。即是接機費是外加的。

    因為旅社是提供服務(service)後向客人收錢,除房間價外是rate外,幫客人服務的部分都屬於charge。

    fee通常是指專業人士或機構向外人的收費。

    expense通常是從客人的角度來談他自己的花費。

    fare通常的搭配字為taxi fare, bus fare, air fare, train fare等旅行費用。

    rate有時也可以等於price。有費率的意思。
