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.

Mombasa Moi Airport Reviews

Had a stopover here on a flight from JRO to FRA. Roof of the terminal is open at the sides. Strange: Birds were flying through the terminal.

Nice Airport

Nice Airport good organised. People working slow there
- Steve von Aesch

Most shops now closed following the cancellation of most European charter companies flying to MBA. There's a bar still open. They have drinks and some food. Lounge only for OneWorld or paying, not worth it. Immigrations slow requiring you to fill in many forms with the same information each time? Customs corrupt. Baggage claim quick with porters helping you for a tip if you want but not pushy. No Wifi

This is how i would expect a AirPort in africa to look like. And let me teel u, i love it more then anything. The Open roof gives u a feeling of knowing u Are in africa,and monkeys were to be seen. This was the highlight to my kids experiance. When the sun went down, we cryed. It was so beutiful,the atmosfear and the vibe at the AirPort. I will forover never forget. I hope Mombasa AirPort countinues to stay the way it is, because it makes the hole experiance Even better. The negativ part was that service and prices was overrated high, to a point were i found it ridicolus.
