Almost certainly, each AC to DC converter you have will support both UK and US voltages, and you do not need a voltage converter. To be absolutely sure, look at the back of your laptop's charger and your AC-to-USB plug. There should be a label that, among other things, specifies supported input voltages and AC frequencies. If it says something like "100-...

It heavily varies by place and even by person serving you. Despite their being legally acceptable PASS cards are rarely accepted. They’re unfamiliar to most people so if they doubt your age they won’t accept them. A Swiss national ID card would likely carry the same stigma. Its a fairly well known trick amongst kids to get fake foreign ID and put on an ...

The only train tickets in the UK that must be booked advance are for overnight sleeper trains, and Eurostar. All other trains do not have mandatory reservations. You can buy your tickets at a station, and take a seat if one is available, or even stand if it's particularly busy (though I wouldn't have thought these trains would normally be THAT busy). ...

Unfortunately delays and cancellations are not uncommon. You have a bunch of options here. It seems like www.trainline.com will allow you to book this. You still have to split it into two tickets: Stuttgart to London and London to Glasgow but it's with a single operator and so you will be rebooked for free on the next available train if you miss your ...

Firstly, this itinerary can and should be done on two tickets. One Stuttgart-London (from ~€60) and one London-Glasgow (from ~£50). The Stuttgart-London leg will be guaranteed - so any delays will allow you to take the next train. Assuming you get an "Advance" ticket on the London-Glasgow train (that limits you to a specific train), then as per Missed ...

The Apple website states: You should use the appropriate wattage power adapter for your Mac notebook. You can use a compatible higher wattage adapter without issue, but it won't make your computer charge faster or operate differently. Lower wattage adapters don't provide enough power. The adapters are rated at a higher voltage and should be fine.

In reality most places in the UK tend to be quite relaxed about the situation. Some countries like the USA are strict and you will be asked for ID almost every time if you are under 25 or 30 years old. But it does not occur so often in the UK in pubs and clubs (supermarkets are often stricter). But of course some places will be stricter than others. (I also ...

tl;dr: all told the single (one-way) journey would be around the ballpark of £20, and you don't need to buy anything in advance. The price would be more or less double this for a return (ie round trip) journey. I'm assuming here you're going from Glasgow Airport, the non-rail-connected one by Paisley. If you are instead going from Glasgow Prestwick Airport ...

If the picture clearly looks like you and the card has your date of birth in an obvious format like 03/10/1995 (or 1995/10/03 although we are less used to the ISO standard in the UK) then you should be OK. Even 03 Okt 1995 although that may take some explanation. I suggest you say that you only have your Swiss document but it does have the date of birth and ...

If you book this on one ticket you are in a good situation. The railways must get you to your destination, and must take care of you. But even if you are not on one tickets there are certain rights you have. DB and Eurostar are both members of Railteam, and as such if you miss your connection in Brussel of Paris because the ICE was late Eurostar will put ...

1) For your MacBook adapter: you need neither. Just simply buy a UK duckhead for your MacBook, already. Either: the outrageously overpriced official "Apple World Travel Adapter set" (which is just five outrageously overpriced duckheads in a box), or (unofficial third-party) individual duckheads (you can't find these on Amazon, only on eBay, for (cough, ...
