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.

Rajiv Gandhi Airport Reviews

★★★★★
This was the old airport. New airport missing from database!!
- Chidam

★★★★★

- Sonja Pavlicic

★★★★☆
Not a bad airport now. However, always take full printed ticket of your flights. The "security" won't accept any concept of e-ticket
- Matthew Holden

★★★★★
Раджива Ганди аэропорт, не Бегумпет!
- Viktor Derkach

★★★★★
I also request, please update the database of the new airport in Hyderabad, Hyderabad / Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (HYD/VOHS)!! New airport is good!
- zettaishin

★★☆☆☆
This was an awful experience. The terminal is undergoing complete refurbishment which means cement, tile dust everywhere and the noise! Avoid for now if you can - or suggest you get to airport at last minute for your flight to minimise time at terminal.
- Matthew Holden

★★★★★
Hyderabad has its new airport near Shamshabad named as Rajiv Gandhi Intl Airport and the new ICAO code is VOHS.RGIA has got many intl awards consequently for its cleanliness and maintenance.It is truly world class Airport.
- RamanaRaju

★★★★☆
Hyderabad International Airport, also known as Rajiv Gandhi International Airport / NT Rama Rao Domestic Airport is located outside the city of Hyderabad, at a place called Shamshabad. The airport serves the population of Hyderabad. This is the second PPP airport in the country, and has been winning awards consistently. For some reason, I found the airport very congested and confusing. Departures are located at the second level, while the first level is used for arrivals - the baggage services and other ancillaries take up the ground level. One has to go up to the second level to check-in and clear security. The gates are up in the second floor - then one takes an escalator to come down to the first floor and then take the jetway to get to the aircraft. The signboards are very confusing. There are too many shops and a gate gets obscured by the shops. The dining options aren't as big as at Bengaluru, but fairly good enough. Its more of a Mall than an airport!
- Binai K Sankar

★★★★★
Well maintained airport from airport roads to lounges. Best in class facility. Reach 2 Hrs before flight departure to avoid last minute rush. New airport boasts world class facilities from restaurants to spas. Readings, lounges and spacious throughout. Security check may take time with unprecedented rush on weekends. They accept e-tickets.
- Sachin Jha

★★★★★
Very well maintained airport. Hyderabad international airport has best of facilities and have all basic as well luxury amenities in it. Reaching airport from city takes time as city traffic may be congested. However, going through PVNR flyover or Outer ring road makes things easier. Hyderabad airport also has lush green outer which makes pleasant while entering and leaving airport. It is advised to reach 2 Hrs before departure as there may be heavy rush during morning and evening hours.
