Duty Free Border Downtown | Victoria's Secret
Travel Retail Operators
Victoria’s Secret is luxury lingerie, beauty products and accessories company emanating from California. The majority of their stores are located in the United States, but in recent years they have started expanding overseas with stores in London, Central America and the Caribbean.
Since then there has been a major expansion into airport retailing, with stores opening in partnership together with major travel retail operators, such as World Duty Free in Britain. London, Singapore, Stockholm, Istanbul Ataturk are just some of many airports that now have a store.
The products sold by this brand in airports only attract sales tax and not excise duty, so often it can be just as competitive to buy downtown and recover the local sales tax on your departure, if this system operates at your destination and you are eligible.
Companies operating the “Tax Refund – Sales Tax Rebate Scheme” for tourists include: Global Blue, Tax Free Worldwide, UK Tax Refund, TaxFree Shopping Ltd, Louisana Tax Free, FEXCO, GB taxfree, TaxBack, VatFree, Travel Tax Free and Global Refund. There are some restrictions as to what and where you can buy, but your tax free retailer will be able to assist you with the regulations. Many luxury stores throughout Europe, Asia and beyond offer this scheme, enabling you to save by buying at discount prices and recovering the local tax.
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.
