Buying on Easy Duty Free provides numerous advantages:
-Get a full VAT refund on the goods that you purchase
With Easy Duty Free, you buy the goods including V.A.T. and get the full VAT refunded after you exit the French territory. This provides a discount of up to 17% over the standard retail price of most articles.
-Access a full and wide catalogue of products in various categories (fine food, fashion, technology, cosmetics)
Because Easy Duty Free is on line, we can offer you a much wider catalogue than traditional shops at the airports. With Easy Duty Free, you can really CHOOSE what you want to buy.
-Save time for the most interesting part of your trip
Is your trip too short to do everything what you’d love to do ? Easy Duty Free delivers the products at central collecting points or even bring the products to partner hotels. Forget the hassle of searching for products while you have much better to do.
-Get a full V.A.T refund instead of a partial V.A.T. refund
Several retail stores offer a partial refund of V.A.T for non French residents. Usually, the refund is in the order of 12% of the purchased goods. Easy Duty Free offers a FULL V.A.T REFUND. For most non-food products, V.A.T. is 20% of the price ex V.A.T., so the difference is very significant for you. The discount can amount to up to 17% of the price including taxes.
Purchasing on easy duty free is simple and almost like on other e-commerce web sites.

The V.A.T. is refunded automatically to your credit or debit card account once you leave the French territory.
Attention: the V.A.T can only be refunded if you clear the V.A.T. certificate that we provide you with your products when you leave the French territory.
By clearing your V.A.T. certificate when you exit the territory. The clearing happens at scanning kiosks named “Pablo”, operated by the French customs authority.
