A practical guide to travel adapters

Electricity is being handled differently all over the world, meaning you better start your trip abroad well prepared. This because electronic devices will be necessary to document the incredible sights or to stay in contact with friends and family members back home. Most electronics like Phones, laptop computers, and hair tools do not come cheap, so it’s incredibly important to use a travel adapters to make sure your device is compatible with the right type of outlet. 

We do advise you to make additional inquiries with your tour operator and accommodation because more and more hotels have a double system outlet system, or have USB Sockets available. In case you’ll have to buy a universal travel adapter, we advise you to look for one with a 2.4V rated USB socket which will refuel your phone faster.

We have listed the types of plugs and sockets used by the destination in the table and infographic below.
