Blog: Olly WehringTo duty free or not to duty free?

Olly Wehring | 13 July 2010

A query from a just-drinks member. Any ideas, folks?

"I was recently at Schipol and Barcelona airport duty free shops. The signage on the liqours stated the prices were for 'ALL DESTINATIONS'. In the past, there was inside Europe pricing and outside Europe pricing.
 
My question is what taxes are included in the prices?  VAT/local Dutch or Spanish alcohol taxes?"

Answers to news@just-drinks, please.
