Duty free shopping

Hi everyone,

We're off to Port Vila in August and have an afternoon flight, will we still be able to buy our duty free at the airport?? Knowing they don't sell over the counter in town from midday Sat till midday Mon.....

Hi Tina, There isn't a huge selection at the airport, so if you have a bit of time at your departure airport, why not stock up in Aus? We found the prices fairly similar in both Brisbane and Sydney airports on the way out to what it was at the airport at PV.

Fung Kuey is much cheaper so try to get there a few days before you are travelling home to buy duty free to take back, and they will have it waiting for you to collect at the PV airport on the way out.

Cheers, Barbara

Hi Guys,

thanks for the feedback, might just stock up here on the basics and get our duty free in Port Vila for the return trip home. Might just save a bit of time at the other end..the sooner we start our holiday the better!! Can't wait :)
