Duty Free limits

From January 2021, there will be changes to duty-free shopping.

Passengers travelling to EU countries will still be able to take advantage of duty-free shopping from January 2021.

There have been some updates to duty-free shopping since the UK left the EU, but don’t worry, you can still bring back duty-free alcohol and tobacco products, you just need to double check the new limits on what you can bring home with you after your holiday.

How much duty-free can I buy when traveling?

From 2021, you are now able to take advantage of duty-free shopping. Limits have been increased and we’d recommend checking the links below which have details on exact allowances as well as exactly what you can and can’t carry between the UK and EU.

Is there a limit on products other than tobacco and alcohol?

For any other goods such as perfume or cosmetics, you can bring back up to £390 worth. This new allowance should still be plenty for you to enjoy your shopping trips to the continent. Fill up the boot and travel with Eurotunnel Le Shuttle from Folkestone to Calais in just 35 minutes.
