    Default Take back to the UK

    I've recently bought a nescafe dolce gusto coffee machine which is now out of it's box because I like a cappuccino or tea on most mornings. Anyway, can I bring this machine back to the UK or do you think it's wise for me to leave it here in Thailand.?

    If it will go in your suitcase (well packed) - why not?

    Why, perfectly reasonable question to ask IMO.
    Same as I bought a rice cooker over there (years ago) bought it back as why leave it (it fitted in the case and had room).

    if the voltage matches and you can wire a plug go for it assuming it fits in the bag

    go for it

    Most voltages on everything from laptops to coffee machines can now be moved from one country to another without problems. We took our coffee machine etc on our honeymoon with two cups etc and a tin of our favourite coffee. Safely wrapped in clingfilm etc and packed in a suitcase.

    We took a rice machine back to the UK at the end of July.
    It was too big to fit in the suitcase so we checked it in with our other bags.
    I left it in its original box and after being asked what was inside they placed some baggage stickers on it.
    I then had to go to the oversize (or something similar) baggage area to leave it there (no extra fee or anything as part of my allowance).

    I brought that machine from Phuket to Bangkok and collected it from the baggage conveyor belt.
    At Heathrow it was with the staff at the oversized area upon landing.
    I was panicking that someone that someone had nicked it.

    No problem, just put a UK plug on or use an adapter. We have 220 volts here and 240 from memory it the UK. Makes no difference really.

    Will this Coffee machine be just visiting or do you want it to settle with you long term ? If it's a visit then make sure you have a solid reason to return. Favorite coffee beans not available in UK etc

    Also make sure that it's coming here for the right reasons and it's not just the better quality water it's after.

    Good Luck
    If you're offended by any assistance I give, it says far more about you than it does me.

    I decided to leave this coffee machine in Thailand as it cost £ 40.00 from Big C.
    On Thursday back in the UK, I was shopping at Asda. I saw the same brand but £5.00 cheaper, so I have brought one here so I can use at home.

    Well, I thought I'll leave it in Thailand and let others use it and break it.
