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.

Milan-Malpensa Airport Reviews

★★★★☆
Fast and efficient arrivals process with plenty of information on hand for onward travel. Passport control was quick and unobtrusive.
- James Lee

★★☆☆☆
Good coffee and wine, duty free disappointing. Would expect better selection of shops, especially clothing. After all, this is Milan. Lounge was a mess. Tables weren't cleared. Food selection poor, next time should eat before clearing immigration. No clean glassware.
- PTM

★★★★☆
I just arrived at MXP in the late morning and go to immigration to stamp the visa to stay. Got a baggage from the claim. Good WiFi
- Paul J. Bateson

★★★★☆
The airport isn't really easy to get to. Terminal facilities were ok, wifi was good and free. Just enough food and retail services. Didn't test lounge. Immigration was good, no checks. Baggage claim was good.
- Ivo

★☆☆☆☆
Very dated terminal - desperately needs an overhaul. Lack of quality eateries. Security staff who don't appear to be taking their jobs seriously.
- Steve Incontro

★★☆☆☆
Airport staff was a little bit rude and the queues on securiy were very long. Despite this, the airport is well-managed and gate are easy to get to. Very clean and safe too.
- Tommaso Federici

★★★★☆
Malpensa airport is easy to reach via bus or train. It is designed for a much bigger number of passenger, so the huge T1 is almost empty. There is a good choice of shops and some restaurants both before and after security. Sometimes toilets and waiting areas lack of cleaning. Overall is a good, but oversized airport, Be prepared for long walks.
- Gio

★★★☆☆
Get to the airport is too expensive, and it's a confusing airport, not easy to find where you want to go. Food services are quite expensive too, for instance McDonald's is at least +25% more expensive than others in the city.
- Bruno PM

★★★★☆
Easy to reach, fast check-in, security check a bit slow but that's life, exceptional choice for food, nice lounge
- Paolo Tofani

★★★★☆
Good airport with easy connection to the city centre with the Malpensa Express. Security check is very fast und there are many shops and restaurants in Terminal 1. Free WiFi is bit slow though. Still a very modern and nice airport.
