this has probably been asked before, but what is the voltage in Goa? Will travel adaptors work and is it worth taking hairdryer, straighteners and the likes?

Thanks in advance ........

Not sure what the voltage is, but you are ok to take hairdryers etc. The best thing to do is buy an adaptor when you get there, they are available in most shops and they are a fraction of the price over here and what's more they fit the sockets, the ones you buy in the UK are usually a bit loose.

Hope this helps - DebyC
