When it comes time to plan an overseas trip, there is one thing you are probably overlooking: what kind of travel adapter are you going to buy? Travel adapters are an essential for anyone traveling to a different country because they allow you to use your chargers and other electronic items from home without having to worry about compatibility. But should you buy an international travel adapter, or a single country travel adapter? Let’s take a closer look at some factors to take into consideration when making your decision.
Are you going to more than one country on your trip?
If you’re only planning to travel to one country, then you may benefit more from a single country adapter. For example, if you’re going on a trip to Italy and only Italy, then a travel plug for Italy will definitely come in handy. But if you plan on visiting Italy and then France and then the United Kingdom, a travel plug for Italy is only going to be helpful for part of the journey. If you are traveling to more than one place, then an international travel adapter is a better option.

How often do you travel overseas?
If you’re trip overseas is a once in a lifetime vacation to a single country, then a single country adapter may be the best choice since you won’t be using it more than once. But if you travel overseas frequently and often go to different countries, then purchasing a worldwide travel adapter can help you save money in the long run. It is much easier to carry around a worldwide travel adapter (or multiple adapters for multiple electronics) that can be used in any country than it is to attempt to juggle multiple single adapters every time you go overseas.
