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.

Thiruvananthapuram Airport Reviews

★★★☆☆
Small but quick with bags - 20 mins after landing we had them
- Terry Hammond

★★★★★
NOT THAT GOOD
- Afsal Zain

★★★★★
GOOD AIRPORT located at the heart of the city centre
- Shakeeb Vakkom

★★★★★
The New Terminal is the best in Kerala. It takes very less time to reach airport and check in. Well connected by Road. Railway Station just 4 km away. More airlines should start services from the city. It is the Indian International Airport located very near Colombo,Singapore,Malaysia,Indinesia,Australia and Maldives,so more services should be planned to these destination in addition to the Gulf Sector.
- Prashanth M Nair

★★☆☆☆
Easily accessible, you can reach the airport from anywhere in the city in 15-20 minutes. Terminal is basic, duty free is usually closed, baggage is slow, nothing to do, no wifi, very basic. Parking is ample but people park their cars in the only alighting area and park them irresponsibly, causing huge jams. the internal road is good but as soon as you leave it it is just a big mess, not that there is not a mess inside due to honking unnecessarily, bad parking, etc.
- Sid Kartha

★★★★☆
It's my home airport. Based on the prevailing conditions, it is a very good airport lying on the shore of Arabian see. Everything is available here, but needs further development as even though it became an international airport long back, it is yet to get that international standards in all levels. Easy to get to the airport and it will get more easier as the roads to the airport are going to be widened shortly. Close to the IT park. It can be used as the regional hub to the southern most tip of India.
- Arun Thomas Oommen

★★★☆☆
Arrival in TVM without issues, relatively new/modern airport, clean, amazingly short line in immigration. Long wait for baggage.
- PTM

★★★☆☆
It's India, relatively direct highway to airport but constantly weaving around/dodging on-coming truck, cars, motorcycles, animals. Check-in and security line short and quick. Terminal, food, and lounge a disappointment. Flies in the lounge, food unedible. Better to sit near boarding gate and have a beer.
- PTM

★★★★★
Best airport handled well by Airport Authority of INDIA...being on the NH66 bypass side it is very easily accessible at any time.
