Reply To: Duty free prices at Heathrow T5

Back to Forum


Another major issue is that at LHR, only very few whiskeys (for example) are priced lower for non EU destinations.

The Pax travelling to the USA is entitled not pay the VAT and excise duties on these exports but is in fact charged the same price as a domestic pax on a flight to Manchester.

I’d like to know where this unclaimed vat and duty actually ends up?

In Dublin airport all liqueur is priced differently depending on either in Europe or outside EU destinations.
