American airlines are United stopping Duty Free on board

attenza duty free

United stopping Duty Free on board. Last Friday it was decided by the major US airline management that United Airlines had decided to follow their competitors, American & Delta and were also terminating their inflight duty free shop service.

This now means that virtually none of the airlines based out of the USA provide an on board Duty Free Shopping facility on board. In the case of United, it was declared that the decision was forced on them by falling sales and an inability to compete with other stores, especially airport shops.

Duty Free United
US Airlines all stop selling Duty Free on board

So, for those of you out there looking to shop on your travels, this option has now been removed. United’s main HUBs include Newark, Houston, Washington Dulles and San Francisco and all these airports have duty free stores in their departure terminals. You can check these details on our global shopping database.

The Duty Free shopping industry can be a strange business, especially in the USA, where few airports have extensive online catalogues for their stores and even fewer have an online pre-order portal, so it won’t be easy to find advance information. Where links are available, we will feature them. We are updating on a regular basis.

Many travellers, won’t be the least bit upset by the disappearance of the inflight duty free shop, many frequent travellers saw it as a disturbance to their sleep after eating their meal and others just couldn’t be bothered to buy. (Airlines have a miniscule 6% of the global Duty Free market).

Nowadays, airlines want to sell you their “ancillaries”, like food, drink, insurance, car hire or upgrades to premium class and clearly questions are now being asked by the airlines as to whether the duty free shop is profitable and fits with their new commercial models.

Paid Food or Duty Free, which option works best for airlines?

British Airways has moved into paid catering in Europe and are yet to do the same on long-haul flights. But as the above article from Forbes explains, a halfway-house doesn’t serve anyone properly, nor does it keep them all very happy.

Watch out for more airlines dropping their duty free shopping in the future and concentrate your shopping in the airport or downtown for a better selection of products.

But, one thing to watch; can you carry all that shopping with you on board?

We see many searches for brand names on our duty free directory, but we do not really feature individual brands, only travel destinations. It is pointless just searching for a Brand or specific product, because all listings and prices are based on where the Duty Free store is located. You cannot buy goods duty free for delivery to you at home. It is the regulation to buy them at a recognised store and take the goods with you on your journey.

Some stores do offer “home delivery” but these goods will not be tax-free in the official capacity. Such home-delivered goods will be tax-paid goods and discounted for you by the retailer, so to circumvent the Customs regulations. Of course, this doesn’t matter if the price is right.

We recommend that you check prices and products in advance and then make your decision as to how and where you wish to buy.

Dicas para comprar perfumes, cosméticos e produtos de beleza nos Free Shops

attenza duty free
Viajando para os EUA? Preços do perfume, cosméticos e beleza. Compare antes de voar.

É melhor verificar antecipadamente quando você compra perfumes, cosméticos ou produtos de beleza em suas viagens.

Hoje em dia as a tendência das companhias duty free é de especializar-se em produtos de beleza, fragrâncias e cosméticos. Uma das razoes é que estes produtos são mais fáceis de armazenar e transportar em vôos.

O que eu posso comprar quando chegar ao aeroporto? Há algumas lojas nas áreas de chegadas em todos os aeroportos, onde principalmente perfumes e alguns cosméticos podem ser comprados. Em vista do limitado espaço nas áreas de chegada, a seleção de produtos não é ampla e o atendimento é limitado, em comparação com as das lojas duty free nas aéreas de partida.

Perfumes e Cosméticos se encaixam na categoria de segurança aérea para líquidos? Sim, tenha cuidado com o que você carrega para o aeroporto e para o vôo. Todos estes produtos de beleza são considerados como “líquidos ou gel” e estão limitados a tamanhos máximos (normalmente 100ml ou 100g), quando passar pelos controles de segurança dos aeroportos. Se você comprar no centro da cidade, certifique-se de seus bens estão embalados em sua bagagem de porão, então você não terá problema. Mas, se você viajar com bagagem de mão só você pode ter um problema se as compras estiverem embaladas individualmente em um tamanho maior do que o limite de segurança. Se você comprar em um aeroporto, a partir das lojas francas, suas compras devem ser embaladas em uma sacola especial transparente vedada, conhecida como “Saco STEB”. De um modo geral, estes sacos devem dar-lhe livre trânsito com esses produtos para a maioria dos países. Mas, se você estiver mudando de avião em trânsito em um aeroporto, especialmente nos EUA, você terá um problema. A única resposta verdadeira para isso é tentar embalar seus produtos na bagagem etiquetada de porão de modo a evitar essas dificuldades.

Muchas compañías de bajo costo, han introducido una regla de “una sola maleta” para equipaje de mano y esto puede ser dificultoso si ud. desea ir de compras en el aeropuerto. Algunas líneas aéreas son más rígidas que otras en cuanto a cómo hacen cumplir esta regla de equipaje de mano y la respuesta es asegurarse de planear sus compras con anticipación y siempre y cuando sea posible, pre adquirir los bienes que desee para su llegada.

Compras no Duty Free Shop o que vale a pena?

attenza duty free

Compras no Duty Free Shop. Você sabia que há muitos países no mundo onde se pode comprar produtos importados livres de impostos (Free Shopping) após desembarcar no aeroporto de chegada, assim como a bordo durante o vôo ou antes de embarcar no aeroporto de partida?

Para encontrar lojas duty free e os preços, inserir destino, click e Go! A cota de isenção alfandegária refere-se ao seu país de chegada e não ao país de partida. Os regulamentos alfandegários podem ser encontrados clicando no botão aduaneiro para a esquerda ou procurando seu país de destino.

Algumas lojas duty free impõem uma cota de compra quando você parte de um país, porém essas cotas nem sempre tem relevância quanto à cota de isenção do país de chegada. Você deveria sempre conferir os limites para o seu destino antes de comprar os produtos.

A compra de aparelhos de telefonia celular em lojas duty free é um tema complexo. Em primeiro lugar, muito poucas lojas convencionais com isençao de impostos, tais como aquelas em aeroportos, tem uma secção de telefones celulares extensa. Mais importante, a maioria dos celulares em demanda, como iPhones, são vendidos atrelados à um operador de rede local, e isto significa que eles estão bloqueados não são facilmente transferidos para outro país ou rede, e também é provável que você precise de um contrato com um provedor de serviços do país onde comprou o telefone.

Você poderá pesquisar o mundo a partir de seu telefone para as lojas duty free shop em seu destino, em aviões ou lojas de aeroporto. A seção online de isenção de impostos das linhas aéreas neste site mostra empresas do mundo todo e as regras se aplicam à produtos comprados nos vôos. Você também pode usar o site para conferir os códigos de aeroportos e linhas aéreas da IATA ou ICAO. As empresas aéreas estão listadas pelo pais onde tem sua matriz localizada.

Duty Free refunds or returns – how do you arrange them?

attenza duty free

Duty Free refunds or returns on faulty goods, is the most difficult problem to solve, because you are probably on the other side of the world when you find out that you need to make a claim.

We receive emails every day asking for a refund or a credit for damaged goods bought in Duty Free stores, even though Duty Free on Arrival does not actually sell goods to anyone!

Information for Duty Free shopping
Check before you buy!

Perhaps these mails come to us because it is difficult to track down your airport store or that the retailer duty free information is not so easy to find?

We also receive many complaints about confiscations by airport security. Unfortunately, this is the way of the world these days and without wishing to defend over-zealous security staff it is really up to the traveler to know the rules in advance.

Here’s a list of tips to help you, before you shop, so to avoid any problems……………………..

– Any liquids, however small, really need to be packed in a plastic STEB Security Bag with your receipt inside. It doesn’t matter where you are flying to, domestic or international, just ask the store to properly pack your goods.

Duty Free Security
Airline Security Rules are different to Customs Rules

– If your store says “it is not necessary”, be cautious and ask why! Security rules for personal possessions, on-board baggage limits or the Customs Regulations, are completely separate issues from the Tax-Free or Duty Free shopping rules , but many people still confuse the two.

– Your personal possessions, such as make-up, tooth paste, fragrances etc, come under slightly different security rules to those applied to your airport or airline shop purchases. The clear plastic bag required is different, for starters. This is important to know when connecting flights “in-transit” to another destination with your shopping.

– Always get a receipt, wherever you purchase. And check it! Especially if you paid by card. We know you are in a rush to get to the gate, but we have lost count how many times we have been asked to help people get duty free refunds due to mis-charging errors.

– Check which currency you are paying with and the exchange rate you are getting. Ideally before you get to the check-out and watch out for a payment method known as DCC, dynamic currency conversion.

– Don’t be afraid to ask the store staff about where you can return your goods and get a refund if you have a problem. But ask this before you leave the store and ideally before the cash desk. Get a business card or the retailer’s address at the time.

– For electronics, ask about the world-wide guarantee/warranty for the product at the time of purchase. Ask to see the guarantee, before you buy.

Cruise info duty free
Liquors on board?

– Did you check if your Cruise Line lets liquors purchased on-shore, aboard ship? It’s too late after you have left the store downtown! Ask before you go ashore.

– When you bought that nice Perfume or make-up, you tested the product in store then took a nice new sealed pack with you to the check-out. And off you went to the gate, probably only opening it once settled in your seat on board. Open the product in the Terminal, before you go to the Gate.

– Buying food products, and food means things like Olive Oil, Vinegar, Olives, Chutney or other local delicacies.. all great gifts from your travels. But, all or most come under the Liquids-in-transit rules! It is better to buy these types of products “airside”, i.e. after passing security, than before. Otherwise, your Extra Virgin, might not even get as far as the departure lounge! And if you get them home ok, are you allowed to import foodstuffs into your arrivals destination?

This is most of the key tips we can think of for now, if there are more, please contact us.

Most travelers in Europe and North America are completely unaware that you can buy your duty free on arrival in 70+ countries as well as from the more conventional departure shops. If you are visiting London, Lagos or Luanda, the dutyfreeonarrival shopping guide will take you to the outlets, giving you links to the stores and also to the Customs Exemptions, Allowances or Limits that you are permitted.

Some stores are now doing Duty Free online with home delivery too.

When your Duty Free Home Delivery is not Duty Free at all!

attenza duty free

Travellers will soon see many more offers for Duty Free Home delivery on their purchases, this is is especially prevalent throughout European Union Countries, where there is the supposed “free movement of goods”.

Airports are starting to go online by launching what is known as their own “retail eco-systems or omni-channel”. Basically this means that they are selling online, just like the other big players, or any another other domestic online retailer.

Tax Free Shopping
Is “Duty Free” for Home Delivery really Duty or Tax Free?

This is a cautionary tale for consumers looking for bargains on their travels and it is wise to check before you fly as to the actual deal you are getting.

Starting with European Union countries, you might now be offered the convenience of Duty Free Home Delivery when you travel abroad, but Duty Free Shopping for those travelling within the EU hasn’t existed for more than 10 years now. It was abolished, for the preference of “free movement of goods”, but with the Tax and Excise Duty paid on all these free-moving goods.

What this means is that nothing you buy for travel between EU Member States is “duty free” at all and anyway, even if you fly to somewhere outside the EU, the goods you buy, must be exported by hand and removed from the country where you bought them, for you to get the full tax discount benefit.

This is why you need lug all those plastic bags full of bottles with you on your flights.

Boarding Pass airport shopping
Showing your Boarding Pass at airport Duty Free Shops?

So, for anything you buy from an EU based airline or airport Duty Free Shop, for delivery to your home, it is not really “Duty Free” at all. (It is another convenient marketing way of saying discounted). Just the same, the Tax, (such as Value Added Tax VAT/IVA/MWst), has actually been paid for you by the retailers, so to allow them to deliver to you and circumvent the Customs rules.

They might make offers on alcohol and certainly Perfumes or Cosmetics, but you will not likely see any deals on tobaccos… because the (Excise) Duty taxation on these products is too high to be subsidised for domestic deliveries.

Fine, who cares? As long as you get the products and the prices you want, what’s the difference? Well, there isn’t any, because thank you very much a retailer just paid your Tax for you, so to get your business.

But, the trick here maybe is to make sure you “haggle the price” to get a better deal or to check that you cannot just get the same products as cheap in a normal store just round the corner. Why, because maybe airport or airline retailers have more margin to spare on goods sold online, because their rent might be lower. And also, the airport deal might encourage your local store to discount more on the price. Print out the offer and show it to them… nothing ventured!

The other trick is to check if you really need to travel at all to actually get these airport discounts? Maybe you can just buy and have the goods delivered to you? (Each site will have different rules though).

One pitfall to look out for is the mixing your products, because they will deliver some products to you, but not others, like cigarettes. And, it is almost certain that they will not wish to deliver to a non-EU Country, if that’s where you live.

Duty Free Information
Check before you fly!

It is all about understanding the Duty Free Shopping rules in advance, to make sure what you want is what you get and how you can take advantage of the best deals.

Your Product and the Price is King, if you can wade yourself through the different regulations, you are ahead of the game, but forewarned is always best policy!

Most of our travel point duty free information pages will give you the rules and regulations to help you make up your mind. But the rule of thumb is make sure that you check before you fly for all the rules, on our global shopping guide.

That cheap Duty Free Whisky – where is it?

attenza duty free

Duty Free Whisky, the best price? So now you know! That duty-free shopping comparison site or blog has just told you that you can save $10 on a bottle of famous brand Aged Whisky in Romania*.

Duty Free Whisky
Best price for Duty Free Whisky, but is it on the other side of the world to your travel plan?

Great news, let’s change our travel plans from Barcelona to Bucharest and swallow up that $10 saving by buying our favourite brand when we get there!

Or, should we get-real, ignore these web content generating stories and be serious about what we want to buy and how?

In fact, the best place in the world to buy duty free whisky is Brazil, but not because of the price. Brazil and many other South American countries have Duty Free Arrivals stores in the airport designed to encourage business. Many of these countries allow an extra allowance and limit when you get there.

Duty Free Whisky on Arrival
Cases of Duty Free Whisky ready for you at the arrivals Duty Free Store

In Brazil you can take up to 12 bottles of alcohol into the country duty free, if you buy in their stores.

The price is probably more expensive than Romania (sic), but they wouldn’t let you import this Limit anyway.

Economies of scale, spring to mind. But, how many Tourists are really going to buy 12 bottles and take them into Brazil? Only the locals who can save a fortune and gift to their friends.

The purpose of our cynicism is that comparing prices for duty free liquors is often a fruitless exercise, because if you ‘aint going there, the savings these comparison blogs tell you about are completely irrelevant.

Most potential buyers of Duty Free goods, know what they want for their journey and actually, the availability of their chosen brand is the most important issue. Not the saving of a few Dollars in an airport on the other side of the world.

We see searches daily, where people are looking for their favourite brand, not the best price.

Clearly, if you can save money, treat yourself and buy a nice tipple for your vacation or that balcony overlooking the Med, all well and good. But, this is only done by checking the stores and products available en-route.

Duty Free Cognac
Duty Free Cognac, high priced, but still cheaper than at home. Don’t get it confiscated!

The other important matter for “liquids in transit” is to ensure that you don’t get your prize Duty Free Cognac or Whisky confiscated. There is nothing more galling than getting your bargain, then to have some officious security guard take it off you at the airport scanner.

Nobody will be more delighted than Duty Free on Arrival if you find the bargain you want and get it home safely, but we suggest that you search by store and in conjunction with your travel itinerary and not by the best price, quoted by a comparison site trying to just generate web traffic.

There are many discounts to be found in Duty Free stores and many advantages, but if you are “not going that way”, those comparisons are useless***. Try to focus on your destination, your travel plan and the stores available to you, it will pay dividends in the end.

Whatever you buy and where and whoever you listen to, one key point….

Duty Free Security
Get that STEB Security bag.

– Make sure you get your goods packed in a special airline security STEB bag. This needs to be sealed, clear and show your receipt inside and on view.

If your airport store or airline doesn’t want do this or makes some excuse…. for sure, make sure that you are not connecting flights. Otherwise, you have got a probable issue.

The other logical step is to buy on arrival, then the potential problem is removed completely, because there is no security in the baggage claim area**.

Otherwise, that super deal you just found, could end up in a bin at at airport somewhere and you seriously irked at losing those savings. We see hundreds of posts on travel forums where people gave the benefit of the doubt when not getting the proper security bag from the store.

All this can be checked before you fly at our main Duty Free Directory.

Enjoy your Whisky, Cognac or Wine!

How to find the best Duty Free Prices – check before you fly

How you can find the best Duty Free prices online, before you fly.  Here are some handy tips.

attenza duty free

When you know the stopovers for your journey, find all the Duty Free pre-order stores on your route plan. Today, this is easily done online. Then just go through the order process to find what you are looking for.

Stating the obvious? Yes, because proper price comparison can only be done by you. Many of those sites out there get it wrong, especially for liquors. Tobacco prices are even harder to find and we have seen sites comparing the wrong prices – like the cheaper duty-free with the higher priced duty-paid** goods.

Duty Free iPhone
Is it a good deal?

– Search “duty free pre-order” – “Duty Free click and collect” or “Duty Free reserve and collect” and add the name of your destination, airport or airline at the end.

– Or use the Duty Free on arrival online shopping guide * to find stores at your destination.

– If you think your own Country is expensive, check at your airport Duty Free arrivals store before you leave home. Airports usually base their prices on the local Downtown stores. If these are expensive, the airport will be too!

– Airline in-flight stores for on board shopping is often cheaper than buying in the airport.

– If you are travelling overland, Duty Free shops at the Border can have the most competitive prices, more so than airports or airlines.

– Special Duty Free Territories are the locations with extra Tax advantages: Places like Gibraltar, Ceuta and Melilla, Hainan Island, Samnaun, Panama, Andorra, Helgoland, The Aland Islands, San Andrés, Tioman Islands and Johor Bahru near Singapore.

– Dubai Duty Free is one of the best places in the world to buy Duty Free cigarettes or liquors.

– Now the Pound is lower than before, Great Britain is one of the cheapest places in the world to buy electronics, like cameras, phones or laptops. Thailand is similar with a massive electronics Mall called MBK, specialising in phones or the laptop Mall Pantip Plaza. Shop downtown, rather than in the airport and recover the sales tax when you leave.

USA Tax Free
Louisiana Tax Free

– The United States is one of the most competitive places to buy Fragrances and Cosmetics. Prices are very cheap compared to other countries and the range is enormous. Shopping in Downtown stores is as good as in the airport.

– Be cautious of stores claiming to be “Duty Free” that are not attached to an airport or airline. 

Duty Free complaints
Caution! 

– Most Border shops sell goods at duty free prices, but some may not actually be be accredited stores. The same applies to some online stores who use the phrase “duty free” just to attract customers.

– For Fashion, clothing and leather goods check out the village style Outlet Malls downtown or near big cities, especially in Europe or the USA. Here, you will find major brand names at the best prices. Plus, you can often get the local tax back when you depart the airport.

Overall, there is no substitute for doing your own research and checking all the online stores for your route to find the best duty free prices.

Enjoy your shopping!

*We are updating our store links all the time, apologies if some don't work or are missing. The Duty Free retailers have only just started to move online with pre-order sites, so we are doing our best to update. **There are now many restrictions on the sale and publicity of duty free cigarettes, tobaccos or cigars. Some bona fide Duty Free stores still display and sell tobaccos for pre-order, but it is getting more difficult to find them. If you want up to date prices for a location, post a question on a travel forum.
