Did you know that you can buy your duty free goods at Gatwick on your departure and not have to pick them up until your return when travelling in the UK and EU?
This brilliant, and hugely convenient, Shop & Collect service means you don’t have to worry about transporting your goods with you on holiday.
This is particularly beneficial if the goods are breakable, easily damaged or heavy. Even more so if you are hand luggage only, and whilst you can take additional duty free bags as carry on on your outbound flight, you won’t be given the same privilege on your return – items will have to be squeezed into your hand luggage case or risk a hefty fine!
The process is as easy as 1, 2, 3…
Simply purchase your goods in the normal way.
Tell the shop assistant that you would like to use the Shop & Collect service.
The shop assistant will take your details, including your return flight information, and then issue you with a Shop & Collect receipt.
This receipt will give details on where to collect your goods on your return – locations differ for each of the terminals.
