witch, sieht schlecht aus:
HM Customs & Excise has published the following summary of the arrangements for travellers after 1 July 1999:
Life after "duty-frees"
After 30 June 1999, you can no longer buy "duty-frees" (duty-free or tax free goods) on journeys within the European Union (EU). VAT and duty are included in the price. This means there are no limits any more on how much you can buy, as long as it’s for your own use. Duty-frees are still available to travellers to and from other countries.
Before you board
Shops at ports, airports and the Channel Tunnel terminal will always sell goods duty and tax paid to those travelling within the EU. They may choose not to pass on price increases.
During your journey
On a ferry or aircraft : On a ferry or aircraft, the goods you buy to take away will always include duty and VAT in the price even if you are in international waters or airspace. The operator will work out the duty and tax depending on where and when the goods are sold. In practice, prices won’t necessarily change during your journey. Operators may prefer to set a single price. They can absorb differences in the duty, or sell some goods only at certain times during the journey. They may run a system where you can order goods during the journey for collection later. Bars and restaurants : Food and drink that you buy from bars or restaurants on ferries, cruise ships or aircraft to consume on board stay duty and tax free.
Trains : Duty-frees have never been available on board Eurostar or Eurotunnel, so the arrangements have not changed. http://188.8.131.52/521959428/471945192T0911270923...
