Are Luxury Brands Cheaper in Paris?
Dear Nicole,

Thank you for your message! If you are taking the EuroStar and you are leaving the EU then there will be a place to drop off your Tax VAT refund at the train station. If you are not leaving the EU which you indicate you are not, then you will drop off your tax refund either at the last train station you are out or the last airport you are out before you leave the EU. I’ve written an article that outlines this entire process that you might find helpful! https://petiteinparis.com/vat-tax-refund-process-in-paris-france/

I hope you have a great time and that answers your question!

Kind Regards,

Are Luxury Brands Cheaper in Paris?
Dear Andrea,

Thank you for the message in regards to luxury brands being cheaper in Europe!

You’re going to have a great trip and I’m so happy to hear you’ll be doing some shopping while you’re over here 🙂

Yes, you will need the actual passport to receive the tax refund (VAT), not a copy.

I hope that answers your question, and you have an amazing time

Kind Regards,

Are Luxury Brands Cheaper in Paris?
Dear Jessica,

Thank you for your message! I’m so happy to hear that you found this post useful 🙂

You are correct, luxury brands will be cheaper in the Europe not just Paris. The best rule of thumb to follow is if the brand is made in Europe then it will be cheaper in Europe. If the brand is from the USA for example, it will be more expensive in Europe. Common / popular luxury brands in Europe include, louis vuitton, hermes, celine, chanel, givenchy, ysl, and many more.

Yes the tax refund works for anyone who isn’t from the European Union (EU), so yes Canadians qualify for the tax refund!

I hope that answers your questions regarding luxury brands being cheaper in Europe!

Kind Regards,
Diane

Hello,

Thank you for your message regarding the tax refund process. I’m sorry to hear that it was closed when you passed by their office. It’s no problem to submit the paperwork manually.

I’ve outlined the entire process here https://petiteinparis.com/vat-tax-refund-process-in-paris-france/ under the title WHAT IF I FORGOT TO SUBMIT THE VAT TAX REFUND FORM OR DID THE STEPS WRONG?

I hope that helps!

Dear Tess,

Thank you for your question about the tax refund process in Paris!

Great question, you will need to drop the forms off in the box before Airport Security. I would recommend that you double check in Greece to see if anything needs to be scanned as I’m not 100% familiar if they require an extra scanning (better safe than sorry).

Yes, please have any goods that you declare for the VAT tax refund with you at all times. It is unlikely but possible that they could ask to be seen.

I hope that answers your question on the tax refund policy in Paris!

Thanks,
