Customs / Tax Free


Customs/ Tax-Free

If you're travelling to a country within the European Union (EU), you can buy items at the tax free equivalent price once you've passed through security control, which means that prices are lower* than those on the high street.

Other products, such as tobacco and spirits, are available at duty free prices for customers travelling to non-EU countries and those within Europe but outside the EU Value Added Tax Area. Under this classification, non-EU countries include the Channel Islands, the Canary Islands, Turkey, Gibraltar, Norway, Switzerland, Iceland, Belarus and Croatia.
