Plugs in the Netherlands: Charge your devices

Travel with a mobile phone, tablet or laptop can be difficult without the right adaptor. Make sure you bring a European adaptor from home, or buy one at Schiphol.


The Netherlands uses the Type F electrical plug. This plug has two round pins, spaced about 2 cm apart, and is the same as those used in many countries in Continental Europe. The standard voltage is 230-volts, but some hotels have special plugs for 110 or 120-volt shavers.
