Duty-free Shopping

Traveling with liquids from duty-free shopping malls

Are you planning a duty-free shopping in the airport or on the plane? Be sure to check your local airport rules for liquid travel in your hand luggage.

Travel within Europe

In Europe, you can travel with the fluids you buy from duty-free shopping malls. Liquors and perfumes will be packaged and sealed for you. The seal is valid for one day. Even if your journey includes a transfer, you should not break the seal until you arrive at your destination.

Travel from non-EU countries
If you are transferring at an EU airport, including the Amsterdam Schiphol Airport, you can bring along the liquids and gills you get from the duty-free airport at non-EU airports. But when transferring at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport, these liquids will be checked at the door.

Travel to the United States
You can only bring liquids from duty-free shops to Amsterdam Schiphol Airport.

If you are transferring within the United States or Canada, your check-in baggage will not be marked until the point of arrival. We recommend that you pack all the liquids that have been taken before duty free in your check-in baggage.

Important: local regulations always apply to other airports. Please check these before you travel with the liquids.

Tip: If you are not able to bring liquids with you to the US, you can always shop online and get some of your money back using Ebates.
