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.

Split Airport Reviews

Grei flyplass som ser flott ut fra utsiden med palmer og masse glass. Men, passkontrollen kan ta opp til en halvtime og terminalen kunne ha trengt en oppussing, spesielt med bagasjebåndene, der så det litt gammelt og slitt ut.
- Kristian Teofilović

Not very good, small and unequipped. Baggage reclaim is a small area leaving queues outside into the airfield. Few shops and cafes, ok boarding. Nice views however from the terminal.
- Sebastien Kapps

I would say it's a good local airport. Pretty clean and in good condition. More than enough for current traffic.
- robert

Far too small for the number of passengers in high season.
- Dominik

it's crowdy, not user-friendly in any way. airport staff's tiny kindergarten. time has left SPU long ago.
- Dag A.

Great airport, efficient, no waiting. Only on saturdays in the tourist season it is very busy. Splendid help checking in with a wheel chair.
- Pieter Vixseboxse

This airport is too small to handle all the passengers. I flew on May 31st, and June 7th which is not really the high season, and it was packed. Not enough people working, and not enough space. The security only has 3 checking lines. There's no specific airline check in. Sometimes they make you take the bus to the airplane (walking would have taken 30 seconds).
- Keith Choi

Wifi wasn't working. No queues at check in, security check and passport control. Boarding seemed a bit unprofessional but quickly. The staff was friendly, the toilets clean. Online check in wasn't working for several hours. Mobile boarding passes or usage of Altea DCS would be great.
- Leon Öttl

There was no queue at the checkin counter, its staff was very friendly. The security check was efficient, even though there was a relatively long queue it went really quick because they opened a second lane. Emigration was fast as well, the boarding process could have been more efficient by leading us directly to our plane. The wifi was free but slowly.
- Leon Öttl

We tried to check in online but it was impossible due to an error. We tried to contact the airport by phone but we were forwarded several times and nobody seemed to be responsible for the issue. We wanted to sit together. At the check in the unfriendly staff snurbed that we should check in online if we wanted to sit together. The security and passport check, however, was quick and easy, including friendly staff. Thanks to the check in, we had bad seat.
