Voltage in UK and France

Jump to last reply

I have been a voyeur on Fodor's forums for months now and finally decided to create an account. Every single question that I have had has been answered by simply searching the forums for information. Fodor's is an amazing wealth of information! Thanks to all who contribute their two-cents worth! You are definitely worth your weight in gold to those of us who are not experienced in foreign travel. I will be travelling with my husband and two kids in October to Paris for business. We will be stopping in London for about five days to sight see. I will have access in both London and Paris to European hair dryers, however, I need my own curling iron. I will not be bringing my own, as it does not appear that it has dual voltage, nor am I confident about purchasing a convertor for it. My plan is to buy a curling iron in London, but I don't know if the voltage is compatible with France? Or am I going to have to buy one in London and another in France? I do understand that if it is purchased in London and is compatible with French voltage, I will have to get a plug adapter at the very least. Thanks for your input!
