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.

Cork Airport Reviews

★★★☆☆
I do not understand why we always have to walk in the rain and they do not use the fingers for the airplane.
- Sandro Domenico Dorigo

★★★★★
I live only 45 minutes away from airport so very handy for me. Great parking facilities, very easy to clear security and once past security the terminal is very clean and modern and not overcrowded (except in June, July and August which is no surprise). Plenty of flights per day to London which i use the most.
- Neil Carey

★★★★☆
Security was a breeze as it was not busy. Otherwise not really an eventful passing through the airport. Aer lingus were good and aircraft was clean. The flight was on time departing and we landed at CDG 12 mins early.
- Conor Crowley

★★★★★
Clean and modern airport, very nice. The new terminal was easy to access after we disembarked the aircraft and headed to the baggage claim. I started to take some photos of the aircraft passing by the large open windows; I was being photobombed by the plants! It took a bit of time for our bags to arrive but no trouble! The customs were very kind and hassle-free. Before I knew it I was out in a nip of time! Overall perfect!
- Declan Kelly

★★★★★
A Perfect Smaller Airport, isn't big but for a smaller airport it has great access to the Airport, Check-In, Security check,etc. Also nicely layed-out, there is only 8 gates but are all perfectly timed and placed with the taxiways and runways.
- Electro Septic

★★★★★
A Perfect Smaller Airport, isn't big but for a smaller airport it has great access to the Airport, Check-In, Security check,etc. Also nicely layed-out, there is only 8 gates but are all perfectly timed and placed with the taxiways and runways. Only 1 Main Runway 17/35, 07/25 isn't used a lot, only for smaller planes.
- JetFlight

★★★★★
Very clean, modern Airport, has the newest terminal in Ireland. Great shops and destinations and very easy to access.
- Aero Flight

★★★★★
Exact same for Arrivals nice shops and a breeze getting baggage and getting back home with taxi/bus.
- Aero Flight

★★★★★
As you would expect when you arrive at Cork, layers and layers of clouds making the flight very dull when you descend to the Airport, the Airport itself though was very clean, peaceful and quite, not neccesarily has some things you can take pictures of inside and next to the baggage compared to Lanzarote and Mallorca but still it was very good.
- Electro Septic

★★★★★
Never been to Cork Airport at night but the departures were really simple, just keep searching for Palma De Mallorca and FR7887 and all went well, The Loop was very helpful with food and drinks, I extremly liked being there at night as there was a plane at every gate (1-8).
