Can I use american fabric steamer in European electrical network (220-240V)?

I want to buy a fabric steamer to iron curtains, but not sure which model to choose (details inside)

Requirements:
1. It has to work from 220-240V electric socket (like those used in Europe), preferably without transformer.
2. It should be small enough to fir air travel restrictions (I don't have luggage apart from this potential buy)
3. It's main use will be to steam iron curtains. Currently my mother spends weeks ironing them. Is there any better solution?

I can't speak to the electrical requirements, but I have used both the industry standard Jiffy brand and the cheaper models (I think it was a Conair brand?) available at places like Target, both happily. The cheaper models may be an advantage here in that they are much lighter weight.
