Shopping while At Port

  Tips Home >> Travelling Tips >> Shopping while At Port


 

What should I know about shopping abroad?
In many countries of the world, negotiation on the price of an item is appropriate and often expected.
Satisfaction guaranteed is much more widely practiced in the United States. Make sure you are familiar with their return and exchange policies.
Many countries do not enforce copyright laws, the logo you see may have nothing to do with the company it represents to you. Check to see if the item is a fake.
Some items for sale may need a special license for export. This is especially true for antiques, works of art or other items of cultural significance.
Taxes can make up an even larger percentage of the purchase price than you will find in the United States.
Duty free may only mean the items are free from duty where they are sold. U.S. Customs have their own guidelines for taxation when you return.
Shopping in port, what does Caveat Emptor mean?
It means the buyer beware. Remember merchants know that putting up a duty free sign often means bargain to many. There are some great buys to be had, but make sure your purchases are good values. Stick with brand names you know and make sure those brand names are spelled right on the product. In other words, make sure it’s not a fake. Also, duty free may just mean it is duty free where you are buying it. U.S. Customs have their own guidelines for taxation when you return.
