Considerations for the United Kingdom

It is likely you will only find plugs-type "G" in the UK. Plug types "D" and "M" are considered very old and they are not common. We keep the old-plugs in our database as we don't know your exact destination. As a rule of thumb, you will probably be fine with the type "G" in hotels and big cities.

... and in Austria you will use:

Plugs Type C Plugs Type F
