Electric Sockets

Turkey operates on 220 volts, 50 Hz, with round prong European style plugs that fit into recessed wall sockets.

Four and five star hotels often provide North American style 120 volts, 60 Hz flush mounted sockets for North American flat prong plugs.

A two pin round pin plug is used so an adaptor will be necessary for anyone wishing to use appliances from the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia or New Zealand.

If you are traveling with electrical or electronic devices be sure to bring a two pin continental adapter with you.
