Touring Europe can be a trip of a lifetime. There is so much to see and do in Europe, from the beautiful beaches of Spain, to the coffee shops of Amsterdam, to the dark beer of Germany. When traveling across Europe, it is important to bring along the correct adapter for each country you will be visiting. Much of Europe uses a two, round pin, adapter plug, however countries such as Denmark, Switzerland and England have unique adapter plugs.
The European Deluxe Travel Adapter Plug Set has the adapters you will need for traveling to all parts of the gorgeous continent of Europe including France, Switzerland, Denmark, Greece and Germany. The Deluxe Kit, includes a total of 5 adapters and ships priority mail with tracking. The Europe adapter plugs allow you to plug your United States appliances and electronics into wall outlets throughout continental Europe.
Europe Adaptor plug Kit allows US, North America, China, Australia and Mexico appliance plugs to be used in Continental Europe such as Switzerland, Spain, France, Germany, Greece and Denmark. Denmark and Switzerland have unique adapters. If you will be traveling to the United Kingdom, Northern Ireland you will need a UK adapter plug. This Continental Europe Adapter Plug Set does NOT include the UK adapters.
Adapter plugs allow electrical connections up to 240 volts. An adapter plug does NOT change the current or voltage (this requires a converter) unless your appliance is dual voltage. A non-grounded adapter may NOT be used with appliances that have grounded plugs; for these you will need a grounded adapter. If your hair dryer, curling iron, electric razor is not dual voltage you will most likely need a converter to use your electric. For more information see Going In Style's Adapter and Converter Finder.
Many of our customers find it handy to have multiple adaptors while traveling - either to run several appliances simultaneously or simply as a backup.
If you think you will need additional adapters for your trip, you can also purchase individual adapters.

Grounded Adapter Plugs
If you are traveling with a grounded United States dual/multi-voltage appliance or using a grounded Transformer you will need to use a grounded adaptor plug. A grounded United States plug has two flat blades and one round pin.
Non-Grounded Adapter Plugs
Going In Style offers non-grounded adapter plugs for use with your voltage converter, transformer, or dual/multi voltage appliance. A non-grounded United States plug has two flat blades.
Cycles: 50 Hz vs. 60 Hz.
Many countries in Europe operate on higher volt electricity than the US. For example, Greece operates on 230 volt electricity and is generated at 50Hz (Cycles) Alternating Current. United States 110-120 volt electricity is generated at 60Hz (Cycles) Alternating Current. This difference in cycles may cause the motor in your 60Hz United States appliance to operate slightly slower when used on 50Hz foreign electricity. Most modern electronic equipment including battery chargers, Lenovo, HP, Asus, Toshiba computers, iPods, etc., will not be affected by the difference in cycle.
Computers and Apple Products
If you are traveling overseas with a Toshiba, HP, Lenovo, Asus, laptop or Apple device such as an iPad, chances are you won’t need a voltage converter. Most laptops are multi-voltage and will operate on voltages ranging from 100 to 240 volts. However, computers do need to make safe connections to foreign power systems and a surge protector is recommended and you will still need an adapter to use your plug.
Converter- Changing Current Voltage
Going in Style adapters allow electrical connections up to 240 volts. Adapter plugs DO NOT convert voltage and only change the configuration of the pins. When voltage conversion is needed, use an electricity converter. An electricity converter changes the voltage input into your appliance. The United States electrical appliances operate on a lower current of 110-120 volts AC (Alternating Current). Most of the world operates on 220-240 volts AC. Therefore converter units enable your electronic and non-electronic appliances to run on foreign electricity (220-240 volts) to match the voltage requirements of your 110-120 volt device. Failure to run your appliance with a converter could damage your appliance.
