Travel Plug Guide For Every Country – Which adapter should I take?

Choosing a correct adapter can sometimes be a dilemma for any traveller. As annoying as it sounds there are different plug and socket types in many counties so to charge your gadgets or appliances you would have to consider buying an adapter that fits the socket. 

If you are planning to go abroad make sure you check what socket types they have. In this article we list all of the countries with the correct socket and plug type. Our list is inline with the International Electrotechnical Commission, which means it should be pretty accurate. If you are travelling from the US to Europe, the UK, Australia, India, Russia, etc. then see the table below for the correct plug type.

We recommend buying an adapter that can be used in multiple destinations. You can check our guide where we give more information on how to choose and which best international adapter should you buy.
