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.

Hurghada Airport Reviews

A bit sweaty.
- Callum Richards

If your aircraft is served by Egypt Air (I mean ground handling) Do not wait for good service, but the new terminal looks nice...
- Andrey

It's dangerous. It's a tent!!!

Nothing very special
- Gergely Lázár

Aéroport sympa.
- Thomas

Frighteningly unconcerned security staff. Passed through a metal detector and nobody even noticed me. Guy at the X-ray monitor was checking his phone instead of looking at the display while having his legs on a table.
- AdosKokos

The terminal area was new and fresh, but egyptions were screaming to hurry up to all of the passengers and the atmosphere was like in the egyption market. Wi-Fi wasn't working. Everything was quick though.
- Dmytro

Аэропорт Хургады очень похож на рынок. Цены в Дюти Фри не чуть не ниже, чем в городе. Контроль слабый. Пронёс с собой 1,5л. воды на борт.
- Алексей По
