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.

Pula Airport Reviews

Very small airport. No facilities for arriving passengers, for departing passengers only a hall with a few taxfree shops. Whole airport building looks quite sombre. There is a small panorama terrace located on the roof, accessible for dep. passengers
- Tom

A somehow basic terminal infrastructure with the charme of the post-communist era. Premises however are clean, well arranged and efficiently organized. Traffic peak solely during summer season, during the rest of the year, nothing doing ;-)
- Jetstream

Деревенский аэропорт.
- Ilia

Small but nice airport with own exit from motorway. Friendly stuff, easy to find everything what you need. The gates are on floor, so you must use ladder to go in plane. Like this airport, much better than airport in Rijeka.
- gojko

Small, but cool airport with great people who works there. Airport have own exit from motorway and that is good. I said, airport is small, but is nice and functional. For me, its stupid that the gates are on the floor so older people have problem there. But, its ok, you need more flights and that aiport will be more better in future! :)
- gumlam

Nice little airport with very friendly ground staff. Everything is located closely together and it doesn't take one very long to check in, go through the security check, etc. Unfortunately, the WiFi was terribly slow.
- Nicolas Morf

This is a very small airport, only 4 gates. It is well organized and the atmosphere is good. Old fashioned check-in with paper boarding passes, split and the larger part collected at the gate. Passport control when we arrives, Croatia not part of Schengen agreement. Effective and did not take too long time. Overall, a good experience for a vacation week in Croatia.
- Joakim Lewin

As other travellers have noted, Pula is a small airport. Access from the road is first class and everything inside the airport works smoothly. Plenty of seating. One of my favourite airports.
- Alex Jaycock

They didn't announce the delay of our flight in the gate displays nor there was any staff member to inform. We just sat there waiting for the plane to arrive.
