How to Avoid paying too much on duty-free items when travelling overseas
Recently, my partner was travelling to San Francisco on business and was also meeting up with an Australian friend living and working over there.
Being the good friend that he is, he decided to bring over some Tim Tams for him as a gift (this is THE most requested item for Aussies living overseas).
Luckily, because we are both frequent travellers, we knew the traps of buying Tim Tams duty-free. Can you believe in the Australian duty-free section these were between $4.00 and $7.30? For ONE packet?! I bought some at our local supermarket for only $2.50. And because my partner is on business and travelling light, instead of worrying about these in hand luggage or getting squashed in general luggage, we separately sent a special care package express to him. So this lovely Aussie gift arrived just before my partner – *perfect! A win-win for everyone.
