Best and cheapest selection of alcohol. Great selection of watches, LEGO, kids toys, perfumes. No good for tobacco products into NZ.

Great prices on alcohol. Much cheaper than anywhere else we found. Not a great range of other products. AUD$11 for 1 litre bottle of Smirnoff vodka is an example of generic well-known brands that are on offer.

A good spot to grab your duty free alcohol before you leave for home. Prices are better than anywhere else but not as big a selection as the main NZ or Aus airports.

Best to go when not too crowded. Prices, particularly for alcohol were excellent. Some staff needed a little more training, when asked the question was there a credit card surcharge, they didnt know. Shop is very well laid out.

Yes the prices are attractive and the range comprehensive, just like Brisbane airport. But really, did you come to a beautiful island to go for duty free? The island is an underdeveloped place with many natural beauties. The Duty free shops are so out of...More

PORT VILA is a fine base for excursions out of town, but also quite a good spot for cruisers wanting to stay close to the ship. In particular it has some of the cheapest duty free alcohol I’ve seen in 50 years of travel –...More

We didn’t look at anything other than the duty free alcohol as we had only a very short time to browse/shop.

Because it is duty free, you can only have any alcohol purchased delivered to your point of departure (cruise ship/airport), however, cigarettes can be taken with you.
