| Royal Capi-Lux - Electronics Tax Free

Capi-Lux is a specialist tax-free electronics retailer originating from Holland, their first airport store opened in Amsterdam Schiphol, now with other traveller shops in South Africa, Norway, Germany and Finland. The product range includes numerous camera brands, binoculars, headphones, games and now mobile phones or 'handy' as they are known in Holland and Germany. Interestingly, the company offers a selection of dual-sim cellphones which are very interesting for travellers as they can use their home and local networks in one phone. With more and more interest in buying duty-free phones, this product sector is almost certain to increase over the years.

Last year the Company was purchased by B&S Global, a Dutch Trading and duty-free distribution conglomerate, who also run a small number of airport stores in the Netherlands.

Tourists and business travellers all seek a bargain on their travels, hence the many questions related to tax-free and duty-free shopping.

'Where are the best duty free prices, buying a TV duty-free, list of shops, store hours, carrying liquids thru, can you shop at?', these are just some of the questions we receive on the subject.

Our suggestion is to search your travel shopping requirements by destination or carrier, rather than by brand or product. The reason being that duty-free prices and rules vary by country or even your mode of transport. So, check your destination first, by using the search facility provided above.

The duty free on arrival global search 'App' for phone and tablet is now available in Android version beta v1, we are working hard to make it the best travel shopping site and mobile App available, the Apple/iOS version will follow soon. You will be able to search the globe from your phone for duty-free shops at your destination, on planes, boats, airports or border stores.
