Budget & TipsBudget & Tips

Even if the islands are not a free zone, there is no VAT and each island establishes its own legislation. Luxury products are therefore often offered at interesting prices. You will find a considerable choice of alcoholic beverages, which the islanders, with their commercial fiber, even offer "à la tirette", for a better price! But beware, cigarettes, perfumes and cosmetics are not always cheaper than in France. Some tourists, both English and French, do not hesitate to make a quick return trip during the day to take advantage of the duty free stores on the boat, especially at Christmas time
