Travel Tip: Electricity and Cell Phones in Europe

Dear LAHS travelers, family and friends,

To charge your digital cameras, laptops, etc. in Europe during your 2014 Europe Performance Tour, you will need an adapter.
The U.S. plug (2 or 3 prong here in the U.S.) will not fit in an European socket. In most cases the European socket takes a plug with 2 round prongs. The adapters allow an U.S. plug to plug in to the back of the adapter and the front of the adapter plugs into the European socket. You'll find adapters at stores like Radio Shack, Walmart or even online at amazon.com etc.

Please click here for a detailed overview of all sockets types, here for a global map showing the spread of the different plug types used around the world and finally here for a detailed list of the countries of the world with their respective plug and outlet types, voltage and frequency.

Incantato Tours discourages their travelers to bring their cell phones to Europe because of the high costs for calls ($1/minute or more), text messages (50 cents and up) and data charges for online services.
Therefore Incantato Tours enables Mr. Rutledge to use the tour manager's cell phone if needed.
If you would like to have more information on this subject, please check the "international section" of the website of your cell phone provider:
