Thankfully I took a Worldwide adaptor on my trip to the Middle East because although there was only one plug style in Egypt there were three different in Jordan. There are Worldwide C, D, F & G.
This plug pictured above is Worldwide G (British) and was probably the most popular plug I found in hotels.
The voltage is 220V – 240V and the standard frequency is 50Hz. For Australians, Kiwis & Brits, that means you can take your electrical appliances without a voltage adaptor. For everyone else, you’ll need to investigate an adaptor for the current. They aren’t too expensive and easily sourced at airports if required.
I never saw any adaptors in stores so bring what you need from home. If in doubt, bring all the adaptors you have. They weigh very little and you’ll have peace of mind that one of them will work.
I’ve also written an article on how I carry my chargers and earphones. Click here to read it.
