4. Special considerations when purchasing goods in Duty-free stores
Duty-free is a system of selling goods in retail stores, located in special areas at border checkpoints. Such sales are free from some taxes and fees, which objectively allows to lower the price of the goods.
Please be advised that Duty-free goods can be sold only to those who have passed customs and border control, and are definitely departing from the territory of the country or regional economic and customs organization where such shop is located.
The goods purchased in the Duty-free shop are then to be exported from the territory of the country where such shop is located.
5. Goods and quality
We try to be as exact as possible while describing the goods displayed on the Service website.
However, for the reason that all our goods descriptions are based upon the information received from the open sources provided by brands and manufacturers, we do not guarantee that all the descriptions are exact, full, reliable and error-free.
Therefore, it is the customer’s sole responsibility to check the goods from their order before they pay and collect it.
Images of the goods displayed on the Website are provided for demonstration purposes.
We do not allow Partner shops to provide damaged goods or goods of substandard quality to be displayed on the website.
6. Pre-order and collecting goods
The pre-order of Duty-free goods is done through MyDutyFree service (using the website or mobile application) by clicking the “Add to the cart” button, adding items to the shopping cart of the customer passenger and confirming the choice.
Pre-order option applies to goods, available for viewing in an online display.
In order to use the service and get a discount, you have to make a pre-order not earlier than 5 days and no later than 1 hour before the approximate time of arrival at the checkpoint.
Only users registered in MyDutyFree Service can select the goods. Therefore, before you start working with the Service, we recommend a sign-up (creating a personal account).
After confirming your choice, you will receive an e-mail with the price of the corresponding product (s) or information about them being out of stock.
When in the territory of the checkpoint, where the chosen Duty-free Shop is located, you pass passport control and get into the Duty-free zone. Apply to the cash desk with Mydutyfree logo and inform about your pre-order (order number or your name).
Be sure to check whether the goods in your order are the ones you have pre-selected!
Then you can pay for and collect your purchase.
Duty-free shops accept all major currencies: EUR, USD, BYN, RUB (coins only EUR and BYN).
If the prices for goods are only in euros, payment in Belarus rubles is carried out at the official exchange rate of these currencies set by the National Bank of the Republic of Belarus on the day of payment, against euro (currency on the price tag).
Payment in US dollars and RUB is carried out taking into account the cross rate relation (Euro / USD rate), (euro / RUB rate), officially set in Belarus rubles for the euro, the US dollar and the Russian ruble.
Also all major credit cards are accepted for payment: Visa, Master Card, Maestro.
The price for the selected item may change on the day of the border crossing.
That is why the price of the item is determined on the day of the border crossing.
Persons under 18 of age may not use an online display in order to select alcohol or tobacco products.
Due to the fact that the goods placed on our display can be in a limited quantity in the store and in stock, they may not be available when you place your order.
Therefore, if the choice is made less than a day before the border crossing, there is a slight risk that MyDutyFree may not be able to contact you in time in order to report the absence of a product.
Please note that there is an allowed quota for the import of alcohol and tobacco products into the territory of Poland. Before traveling, we strongly recommend you pay attention to the current restrictions.
Only those promotions and discounts are applicable to products selected through MyDutyFree service, information about which has been placed on the Service's resources.
