Duty Free Shop

Duty-free shops (or stores) are retail outlets that do not apply local or national taxes and duties. They are often found in the international zone of international airports, sea ports or onboard passenger ships. They are not as commonly available for road or train travelers, although several border crossings between the United States and Canada have duty-free shops for car travelers. These outlets were abolished for travel within the European Union (EU) in 1999, but are retained for travelers whose final destination is outside the EU. They also sell to intra-EU travellers but with appropriate taxes.
