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.

Leipzig Halle Airport Reviews

SEN Lounge
- James

Baggage Belt Broken on Check in!
- James

Winter Wonderland!
- James

small OK and clean airport. Security personnel behaves arrogant like it was hired from all STASI folks. Long walk from check in area to gates.........................................................................
- Radovan Krejci

Check in guy was quite fine, but the distance from check in to security is kinda far. Like really far. We had to walk for at least kilometer at an airport where are 3 movements per hour and you'll still be in the rush hour (not counting in cargo.) WiFi nonexistent. There are few shops and a bakery and tons of car rentals.
- Marek Brunner

Leipzig Halle / Schkeuditz airport is a small regional airport. It is very convenient for the short ways between the gate and the baggage claim. However between check-in (which is close to the train station) and the gates, there is a 5 minutes walk which can be annoying.
- Bernhard P.

Strange airport in that it seems to be designed as a very long corridor across the top of the rail station. From bag drop to security and the departure gate involves a very long straight walk. Not a lot to see or do in the gate area.
- Sean Lucas

Over all it is pretty okay for domestic flights. The check-in time is good. Only the terminal facilities after the security control are poor. If you arriving from a non Schengen country, the whole flight has to wait in a tiny room for passport-control. Baggage reclaim is very fast.
- Adrian Wellershaus

Good airport and not too busy. The airport is light and friendly. Everything works fast. Leipzig/Halle is the best airport in that region.
- Niklas Jakob

Badly structured airport, relativly long walking distances for such a small airport and unfriendly staff. This airport does not even have wifi....
- Fabian
