Duty Free Border Downtown | Travel Tax Free
Travel Tax Free
Travel Tax Free is not a duty-free retailer, but a Spanish based financial company that processes tax refunds for travellers. There can be confusion between duty-free or tax-free retail and the tax-refund service for tourists. In simple terms, when you buy goods in an airport and return home, (or now also on arrival), the goods you buy are already discounted and priced as tax free or duty free goods, so you do not need to obtain a refund.
However, if you buy downtown in certain countries, you still have the right to a tax-refund on your purchases, but you need to make a refund claim at the airport, before you leave. This type of Company does the work for you, reclaims the tax on your behalf and sends you the money, less their commission or charges for doing so.
