Theresa writes: Jean, what do I need to plug in my electrical appliances in Europe like my phone, my hairdryer, and my iPad?

Theresa, thanks for your question! You will want to purchase an adapter that will allow American plugs to fit into European outlets. The plugs in the United Kingdom and Ireland are different from those Continental Europe, but you can buy a universal adapter that will work for both. This will be more expensive and bulkier than a country-specific adapter, but might be worth it to you if you travel a lot. Don’t feel like you need to splurge on this item – the less expensive options should work just as well.
