In strongly correlated electron systems, enhanced fluctuations in the proximity of the ordered states of electronic degrees of freedom often induce anomalous electronic properties such as unconventional superconductivity. While spin fluctuations in the energy-momentum space have been studied widely using inelastic neutron scattering, other degrees of freedom, i.e., charge and orbital, have hardly been explored thus far. Here, we use resonant inelastic X-ray scattering to observe charge fluctuations proximate to the charge-order phase in transition metal oxides. In the two-leg ladder of Sr$$_{14-x}$$Ca$$_x$$Cu$$_{24}$$O$$_{41}$$, charge fluctuations are enhanced at the propagation vector of the charge order ($$mathbf{q}_mathrm{CO}$$) when the order is melted by raising the temperature or by doping holes. In contrast, charge fluctuations are observed not only at $$mathbf{q}_mathrm{CO}$$ but also at other momenta in a geometrically frustrated triangular bilayer lattice of LuFe$$_2$$O$$_4$$. The observed charge fluctuations have a high energy ($$sim$$ 1 eV), suggesting that the Coulomb repulsion between electrons plays an important role in the formation of the charge order.
