Duty Free prices
Duty Free is the term commonly used for products that are exempt of excise duty; these are exclusively available to international passengers who are travelling outside of the European Union. In-store these items are identified with tickets which have a green box on them with the wording ‘Only available to passengers flying OUTSIDE the European Union’. These items include cigarettes, machine-made cigars, rolling tobacco and a selected range of spirits.
Hasn’t duty free been abolished?
No, not for everyone. Back in 1999 intra-EU duty free purchases were withdrawn, this meant that passengers travelling within the EU could no longer take advantage of duty free prices. However, duty free does still exist for all passengers flying outside the European Union.
Everyone can buy
The good news for those travelling within the EU & UK, there are great many products still available to purchase including an extensive range of spirits, wine, champagne, fragrance, skincare and confectionery – in fact everything in-store is available to purchase with the exception of cigarettes, tobacco and select range of spirits designated as ‘duty free’ for those passengers flying outside the EU. Additionally, unlike duty free purchases, there are no allowance restrictions on the amount that can be purchased for personal use.
What's the Average High Street Price?
It's our pleasure to offer you exceptional value 365 days a year. To help achieve this we survey many of our products on the UK high street. An independent company travels the country to find the products we stock at our airport stores in the shops you typically buy from week-in week-out. We aggregate these observations to create an Average High Street Price.
Where products are unavailable on the high street or were not sufficiently located, we typically then use the manufacturer's recommended retail price (RRP), where one exists. These two comparison prices are the ones we show our savings against both on our website and in-store.
