Frequently Asked Questions

Duty free shopping is when you can purchase goods that have had the duty/tax (usually taxes like import, VAT, and sales tax) waivered by the government, therefore reducing the prices that you would normally expect to pay in a standard shop or website. Duty free shops are usually found at airports or sea terminals, but you can also sometimes purchase duty free goods during international flights or on cruises.

Anyone travelling internationally (between two different countries) is eligible to purchase duty free items.

The term 'duty' refers to the tax that you pay if you bring a product from one country to another. i.e. if you bought some perfume in the United Kingdom, and then flew to Germany you might have to pay tax in both countries. Most governments do not charge the duty on products bought when you are leaving that country, which means that the customer doesn't have to pay the tax twice. This usually only applies when you are leaving the country, i.e. it is for export purposes only.

As the price for items bought in duty free shops often have the duty taken off the RRP, it can make them a lot cheaper than if you bought the goods in a normal shop. However, there are usually limits on how much you can buy on your trip, and these limits will vary from country to country, and also vary from item to item (i.e. there will be different limits on alcohol and cigarettes).

The most popular items in duty free shops are usually the products that are most heavily taxed, i.e. alcohol, perfumes, and tobacco. Duty free inventories will vary from country to country, and also from airport to airport. In larger airports, you may even find different prices in the numerous shops - remember it's always best to shop around! Make sure you check our database to see all the shops at each airport, and then you can invesigate the prices at each one.

Sadly, you can't just turn up at a duty free shop with several empty suitcases and fill them up with goodies! Restrictions will be in place, and these can vary from country to country. You will only be allowed to buy certain amounts of different types of products. Tobacco, alcohol, and perfumes are usually the products that are most likely to be subject to the stricter allowances. Make sure you check whilst purchasing, or else you run the risk of your items being confiscated upon arrival at your destination's customs.

No. Duty free is only available to travellers who are flying from one country to another country.

Yes. Many duty free shops will allow you to pre-order any purchases online before your journey. You will need your boarding pass and passport when you pick the items up from the airport shop.

Corfu International Airport Reviews

★★☆☆☆
Terminal viel zu klein, und überfüllt. Chaotische Abfertigung von Gepäck und Passagieren!
- Erik

★★★★☆
Women at check in was very slow, tagger not working, had to write herself, security check very quick, facilities are ok, like the free WiFi. Went to the cafe upstairs, food looked a bit sweaty. Still a very good experience!
- Gabriel

★★★☆☆
Corfu's Kerkira airport is small, meaning that there isn't a wide selection of shops and there is no Wi-Fi, but baggage claim still managed to take a long time. However, accessing the airport seems to be rather easy and it does not take too long to pass customs.
- Jack

★★★☆☆
Getting to Corfu Airport is a bit of a struggle due to the road network being a bit chaotic. The airport is fit for purpose which is for summer seasonal tourist traffic and it shows. Although at peak times the airport becomes congested in all areas (check-in, security, departure lounge). The air-conditioning could do with replacing as it was all but useless. There wasn't sufficient seating but again this is due to the demand the airport faces at other times other than peak. There are a number of food and retail outlets but these show alot of wear and tear. There was some kind of free wifi but it was poor at connecting to. Planespotting at Corfu Airport is pretty good. There are some good points in between the Gates 1, 2 and 3. These provide good views over most of the passenger apron and part of the runway. There are marks on the windows and you do get some reflections in the windows.
- AviationEagle32

★★☆☆☆
Small old airport with old facilities. Worser of all I seen in Greece (i have seen 3 already). Totally new airport is required urgently. Facilities are overcrowded and need renovation. Just a place to jump into plane. Baggage claim zone is oldest one - no indication of flights, all baggage is placed on 2 transport lines. CHAOS!
- Stanislav Vartanov

★★☆☆☆
It is old and "traditional" greek airport. In summer there are many flights and the airport is small, so when we came in from the aircraft, there were too many people. Wifi is not working. I didn't find any food opportunities in arrival zone, so I had to wait when I will come to hotel and eat there. But baggage claim was really fast, we came to the belt, and after 2 minutes we had our baggage.
- Erik Rehulka

★☆☆☆☆
one of the worst Airports I've ever been to, it is way to crowded for the capacity of the airport and security, wich almost made me miss my flight, as the queues are so long that it is almost impossible to get through in the time from the check in starts to the flight boards
- Raini Svensson

★★★★☆
Also much better on return from Corfu. Straight to border control and our baggage was already on carousel. Well done again.
- Mike Bennett

★☆☆☆☆
The airport was more than overcrowded. It was a nightmare to get anywhere. We just made it even so we had 90 minutes to come to the gate.
- Guido Eikelmann

★☆☆☆☆
The worst airport I have ever been. Too(extremely) crouded in peak season. Women on checkin laziest person I have ever seen too. After check in, we had to carry baggage elsewhere for rentgen check. Ater that, we had to overtake security check line, if we didnt wana miss flight. A lot of complains from other ppl, who were waiting in that line, while we overtaking them.
