/In association with Cheapflights/
We travel fairly often and over the years our kit bag of technical goodies has grown into a swarming mass of wires, usb’s, adapters, SD cards, SIM cards and so much more awesomeness, but would you believe that the one thing that constantly catches us out is a travel adapter? Me neither, but…#TrueStory :(
This is generally caused by some incorrect approaches to packing (sheer laziness) :
1) I often just feel confident I have the correct adapter and don’t bother searching online.
2) I pack early and do my research (extremely rare) but Google Images flood the search results with incorrect images.
3) I inevitably fall back on the assumption that I can cheaply buy an adaptor on arrival (sometimes VERY expensive.)
The short of it all is that there have been times i’ve been unable to charge a camera, phone, computer when I’ve desperately needed it. Travel is our job sometimes so you can see how this can be embarrassing on top of being unpleasant, sometimes heartbreakingly so.
In any case, we’d hate anything like this to happen to you! So when the chaps over at Cheapflights sent us this “Worldwide Travel Plug Guide” we were pumped. A) because now I have no excuses and B) because I reckon this is pretty invaluable information to anyone who enjoys international travel.
So before you head out on your next surf trip to Bali remember that we’ve got a resource for you right here. Don’t forget that just because countries are in close proximity to each other like Thailand and Malaysia, it doesn’t necessarily mean they have the same plugs, or even voltage systems.
