depends where you stay

A lot of hotels now have dual ports in their phones - one for the RJ11 connector you use in the US, another for the regular UK phone connector.

You can get an adaptor to change RJ11 to UK style.

Try this http://www2.warehouse.com/product.as...VW20726&cat=pc
it should do the job

have a good trip

Magellans also offers an adapter, it's at http://www.magellans.com/cgi-bin/mit...&Args=&Pos=227 and costs under $10.

Just in case, always travel with a kit consisting of a small screwdriver and a modem cord that ends in wires at one end and you can hardwire it either to the inside of the jack or the inside of the phone if necessary.

In addition to the phone plug adapter, sometimes you need a line1/line2 inverter which allows you to use the modem on line two of your phone cord. Some british phone lines are inverted compared to US lines.
