Stansted airport

Stansted airport
  I'm going to Stansted airport for the first time in a few days, and on the website it says there is a body shop and boots. I was just wondering if the stuff in the shops there is VAT free, or is it slightly more expensive because you are paying for the 'privilege' of buying things after your luggage has been weighed??
thank u xxxx


Answers:

Once you've gone through customs stuff is normally cheaper. I know the wife normally picks up stuff there but can't remember which shops are airside and which shops aren't as there are shops both sides.
I love Stansted, it's so much better than Gatwick and Heathrow :)

I bought my sun cream from Boots in Stansted last year and I noticed it was 1 dearer than my local boots. I guess you're paying for the privilege of having a shop there & they are going to cash in on forgetful people like me!
I do like Stansted though, its my favourite airport. Unfortunately it seems to be everyone elses favourite:rolleyes: as i'm having to fly from Heathrow when I go away in 3 weeks time.

Bodyshop is before you go in i think boots was too, it certainly wasnt cheaper last time i went but the body shop did except the discount card things i know some others like the ones at railway stations dont give the discount.


Answers:

Shops this side of customs will normally always be dearer but airside they are normally cheaper.
Trouble is, when we go to the airport the wife tends to explore all the shops and treat it as part of the holiday :(
She goes in so many she can't remember which is which :lol:
