What does duty free mean?
Duty free shopping means they don’t charge you with sales taxes and import duties for shopping. Duty free shops are found at sea ports and airports or at border crossings overland.
You may also buy from the duty free trolley in the air while on an international transit. Whether the duty free facility will be included in the hand luggage is entirely the discretion of the airport. Unlike one or two airlines most of them distinguish between duty free baggage and your regular baggage. The duty free bag is therefore considered as hand luggage.
Does duty free come cheaper?
It depends on what you are buying if you have to think whether duty free comes cheaper. You will not get a bargain always. So you can never buy on impulse. You have to be prepared with enough resources before you set out to buy things duty free.
You can also pre-order on Dubai duty free shopping so that you check the prices out in advance. The high end designer stores offer you a favorite Chanel perfume or sunglasses from Dior and they won’t be as cheap in the stores in Dubai than at the airport. Cigarettes are always a cheaper purchase at the duty free stores.
What should you buy best in duty-free shops?
Buying high end products are cheaper but of course you should be checking the duty free shops out at the airport as well as at the malls before you set out to buy. Sometimes it so happens that you might spend more money than at malls or online while at other times, you may end up with big tax savings.
For example, you can buy Johnnie Walker Wine (750 ml) at just $32
There are many other things that you can buy at Dubai Airport at much cheaper and best rates like:
