UK plug adapters HELP

Travel abroad at least twice a year, arrived in GC late last night.....8th trip here and I have forgotten something as basic as plug adapters.

Can anyone tell me whether there is anywhere on a Sunday we can purchase these? Staying at Coral Sands.

Nothing really open on a Sunday! Have you asked at the front desk at Coral Sands, they may have something to loan you or even let you charge some essentials elsewhere!

hey, I can definitely sympathize! Not having any way to charge electronics, etc, after a along flight, and not being able to use your other electrical stuff is really frustrating.

Hopefully they can help you out. Enjoy your stay!

The retail gift shops in Marriott, Ritz-Carlton or Westin might have them today.

There's an electronics shop (I think it's Caytech Electronics, phone 345-926-8324 or 345-943-8324) in Galleria Plaza that you can try tomorrow.

Try one of the hardware stores. Al Thompson's or Kirk's Home Store are two options.

Glad to hear you were able to get the right adapter to accept the UK 3-pin plug! Did the guy at Coral Sands say whether he got the adapter on-island, and if so, where? It would be good if we can share that info on the forum, in case anyone else runs into that same problem.

Will do CayMan TA, I need to purchase one for myself as after our stay here we are staying elsewhere on the Island.

Will post when I find out.
