Sockets and plugs

Not a very excitsing topic, sorry.

Going to Bandos in October and from reading all these posts have a pretty good idea of what to expect.

Except.... what kind of sockets and plugs do they have. Should I take a worldwide adaptor ? Also is the voltage different ? For example in Caribbean and USA the voltage is totally different so UK hairdryers, phone chargers etc don't really work. I have a US hairdryer I can take if I need it.

Thanks for any help

Hi suzyq

220/240v and 3pin plug same as UK, I think you might find that the rooms have hairdryers in them, i usually take a socket adaptor with me incase of a shortage of sockets

regards susie
