3. Conditions to benefit from duty free
At the airport of Nice Côte d'Azur, if purchases in public areas do not benefit from any tax exemption, it is not the same once arrived at the departure room. In the bonded area, prices will depend directly on the destination of the traveller.
As a result, Duty Free purchases will be exclusively for travellers whose destination is a country outside the European Union. In Nice, there are some shops that will allow you to buy duty free regardless of the destination of the trip. This is one of the special features of the NCE airport: there is no formality for the traveller. Indeed, within this zone, the tax is automatically applied. All you need to do is present your boarding pass and ID when purchasing an item in the bonded area.
4. Reach the airport shops from the city centre
There are different modes of transport to the NCE airport. For travellers arriving by personal vehicle, there are Blue Valet car parks at their disposal. With 24-hour surveillance, these car parks are located in the immediate vicinity of the two terminals. In addition, by making a reservation online, a valet will wait directly for the customer at the drop-off on the day of his departure and will take charge of parking the vehicle in one of the parking lots.
Of course, it is possible to reach Nice airport from the city centre by other means such as long distance bus or public transport. T1-T2 shuttles connect the two terminals once every 15 minutes.
