Comment on Understanding the Tax Refund Service in France and Galeries Lafayette new Self Service Tax Back Refund Machines by Diane.

Hello Tune,

Thank you for the message. No there isn’t an amount like there is in the UK. However, some high end luxury stores will limit how many bags they sell you, for example I believe Hermes limits it to 2 a year with the same passport. Also, keep in mind the more items you have the more likely it is you will get searched when you go through customs so just make sure you have all the information / products readily available!

Have fun shopping!

Understanding the Tax Refund Service in France and Galeries Lafayette new Self Service Tax Back Refund Machines
Dear Ybur,

Great question! I understand how it can be frustrating not receiving your tax back immediately, especially considering you already received your tax back from Louis Vuitton but the tax refund can take up to 3 months. The reason it can take that long is because during the busy season there are many more tax refund forms being submitted. If the staff told you you didn’t need to drop the form into the mail box that means it was able to be scanned digitally. Hope that answers your question!

Kind Regards,

Hello Kini,

Thank you for your question. There should be a place for your friend to drop it off in a box at the Frankford airport. I would recommend your friend arrives early to located the tax back, and she can ask questions.

Please make sure you ask someone when you are there so they can drop the box in the correct mail box.

Hope that helps.

Kind Regards,
Diane

Hi Mary! Yes – I order the smallest size possible (XS). Helmut Lang size XS is great for petites. I have a few dresses in XS that fit perfectly as well, with no alterations needed. They are definitely worth the investment!

I love living in Paris! There are so many great places to explore, my French is a tad rusty, so I need to keep practicing! 🙂
