GIBRALTAR DUTY FREE SHOPPING
Gibraltar is a shopper's paradise as it offers familiar high-street name stores along with quality international brands all at a fraction of the cost back home due to its VAT free status. This means that even before you get started, you are already getting 20% off of UK high-street prices.
For the smokers, you can pick up a 200 cigarette pack such as Marlboro for around £16 - a snip compared to the current UK prices of around £8+ for a packet of 20. For the drinkers amongst you, you can get a bottle of spirits for about £8-£10. You’ll have to drink it all there though as you can’t bring back the alcohol purchased in Gibraltar (just from duty free)
Prices on electronics, perfumes, watches and fashion labels are all considerably cheaper than you will find back home. Add to this the fact that you do not have to perform any complicated currency conversions in your head (the Gibraltar currency is the pound sterling and you can spend your very own £££s there), it makes shopping in Gibraltar both straightforward and affordable.
Remember the jewellers are willing to negotiate too, so practice your haggling skills before you go.
For day to day essentials such as clothes, shoes and even food items, you will find the familiar named shops that will make your shopping experience a breeze.
All in all, Gibraltar is a great place to shop. Compact, great value for money all VAT free!
