The World Duty Free shops have presence in many airport passenger terminals across Spain and Europe, offering a unique opportunity to purchase high-quality products at great prices in the exclusive environment of the boarding areas.
Where are you likely to find a World Duty Free Store in Spain? If you travel to cities like Alicante, Barcelona, Bilbao, Gerona, Madrid, Málaga, Santiago de Compostela and Seville, or to the islands of Mallorca, Ibiza, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria or Tenerife, one of these multi-branded shops will be awaiting you. In fact, in most cases you will step into one right after passing through security, as the company has recently implemented the “walk through” format at many airports.
What can you buy at a World Duty Free Store?
To give you just some examples, before you board, you will get the chance to purchase delightful fine chocolates by Godiva, Lindt and Guylian, or beauty products and perfumes by Yves Saint Laurent, Elizabeth Arden, Givenchy, Gucci, Hermes, Hugo Boss, Issey Miyake, Jean Paul Gaultier, Kenzo, Moschino, Cacharel, Calvin Klein, Chloé, Diesel, Biotherm, Clarins, Clinique, Elizabeth Arden and L’Oréal.
Additionally, cigarettes and liquors are two of the most frequently purchased goods before take-off in these duty free stores, and selected locations may offer jewellery and complements, travel accessories and all sorts of souvenirs from stuffed animals to key chains and figurines.
Shopping online and collecting your purchases at Madrid airport
If you are flying out of Adolfo Suárez-Madrid Barajas international airport, you can buy your travel gifts online by visiting the Madrid Duty Free website and collect your purchases at the store of your departure terminal (we recommend confirming this beforehand) before you fly. They will have your order ready for you to collect it and all you have to do is make sure you have your ID and boarding pass handy.
Bear in mind that, depending on which country you are flying to, restrictions may apply to the number of bags you carry onto the aircraft or the amount of specific goods you can buy (especially spirits and tobacco), so you are also advised to check the specific customs regulations in advance.
