Travel Adaptor for Channel Islands

There are multiple socket types used in Channel Islands (C / G). However the most commonly found one is the same type G socket as found in the UK so you should not need any adaptors as long as your appliances have standard UK 3 pin plugs.

Frequency - The frequency in Channel Islands is 50 Hz which is the same as the UK.
