Why shopping at duty free is more exciting than ever
Start your travel shopping before check in. The best brands available at duty free stores are now closer than ever thanks to the following tips.
Irrelevant of the time of year in which you are reading this, we are sure that you wish you were on holidays right now. Playing with your passport whilst thinking about what paperwork you need to present at Customs. Feeling the plane taxing down the runway, and the sensation of taking off. Planning excursions, thinking about the local food to be enjoyed, and more importantly, how will the stuff you bought fit in the suitcase? Without having to pay excess charges, of course. To find yourself surrounded by hundreds of perfumes at the duty free store is certainly a part of the airport experience.
Even though the pre-boarding time can feel hurried, there are a number of ways to improve your duty free shopping. Nowadays, it is more than just walking into the duty free store. It involves participating in the experience, both before and after flying. Dufry is always innovating the services and offers so that passengers have a unique retail experience, considering the time spent at the airport. The kind of environment that also allows you to take a moment to delight yourself with the best brands on the planet, all in the same space.
