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.

Maastricht Aachen Airport Reviews

Verry nice airport.
- Wuyts

No KLM Amsterdam links now so I have not used this airport in many years , shame .

verry quiet airport, almost to quiet
- Jeroen

very small and cute
- GIS Malaysia

Oud, na 20 uur doodstil, geen fatsoenlijke zitruimte, alleen vieze automatenkoffie etc.
- Herman Sillen

Very nice airport. Check-in and security check are very fast! For travelers for all around Maastricht (Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands) it's a great gate to the air. Even the free wifi is a nice addition wich was made a few months ago.
- Remco

Easily accessible because of its location near an important international highway intersection and a fast alternative for other airports in the region if you need to go to any of the destinations offered from this airport. Airport terminal seems a bit outdated, but with a small cafe and two shops, the facilities are sufficient for a small airport like Maastricht Aachen Airport.
