All rental cars I've had in the last few years have had USB ports in the dash or center console to plug my phone charger in directly. Just in case I hit a quirky car model, I am considering packing along a cigarette-style plug with USB port. Does anyone know for sure if European cars take the same size cigarette plugs that we have (mine has 5A output, 12-24V input and the usual nipple-style connector.) If not, or if you all agree there will be a direct USB port, I'll just leave the plug home.
This is specifically for cars in England and Ireland. Can't say for sure what model car I will get.
Any thoughts? Thanks
