Petitioning UK airport-based retailers

Stop airport retailers taking your discount!


Last week, a national news story revealed the scandalous behaviour of retailers in airports, who have been pocketing duty from consumers. Airport-based retailers demand sight of every consumers’ boarding pass, which is scanned to establish if the traveller is staying within the EU or travelling further afield internationally.

Once the destination is established, retailers make 20% on all purchases made to non-EU flyers, rather than passing on the saving to the consumer.

Already, consumers are refusing to give their boarding passes, to stop retailers making 20% profit out of them, upon hearing the story in the national news.

Kabbee, London’s award-winning minicab booking and price comparison app has launched a petition to encourage consumers to ‘pass on’ the 20% discount and urge retailers to change their behaviour. Airport passengers could be saving £2.5billion of VAT per year, but retailers have pocketed this instead.
