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.

Gimpo Airport Reviews

this airport needs some investments- it's quite old and cramped. No comparison to ICN.
- Dominik

Nice accessibility from the city, but too small retails and old facility. Most of all, airline lounges are located in the land side, which is critical given that business travelers flying HND-ICN prefer GMP to ICN due to the accessibility from the city.
- Donghoon Kim

Gimpo international Airport is close to city center and has good accessibility. It takes only 20mins from Seoul sation by subway. Immigration and baggage claim process is super fast. small but lovely airport I think.
- jrkim

Very efficient check-in and processing through security, right up to gate boarding. These guys don't hang around. At check-in they scan your luggage while you wait and if there are any issues they immediately put the bag to the side and ask you to open it. Verify the query and then allow you to progress through security.
- Paul Munro

Access to WiFi is very difficult. There are few "free" hotspots but impossible to connect if you don't have Korean mobile phone number to receive access code via SMS. Staff is not very helpful with this matter telling you to buy access to the "premium" wifi, which I cannot be bought due to error on payment page. Ridiculous! Food options are very limited, two restaurants in common area and two cafeterias on the air side. Access to the airport is very convenient but you have to walk for like 10 minutes from the subway station to the check-in area. Overall airport facilities are at most average.
- LKay

Too crowded in the morning time and lack of resting area and retail shops, and airline lounges are located in landslide, which is not convenient.
- Donghoon Kim

I didn't get to see much as I just collected my baggage and went off. I recommend trying to get off the plane fast as immigration took a while.
