Why can't I order an article online that I have seen in your airport shop?
Our online offering may not be identical with the articles that are available at the airport. It is often the case that we offer a bigger selection online for home delivery, for example wines and cosmetics. Conversely, certain articles such as tobacco products and perishable items may not be shipped. Only duty-free articles are available for delivery within Germany.
Where and how can I get an invoice as proof of purchase?
Your invoice will be sent to you by email as soon as you have completed a purchase. If you don’t receive an email, please contact our customer service for assistance.
How much does shipping cost?
Delivery is completely free of charge for you. We cover the price of delivery.
Where can I have orders shipped to? Do you also ship to P.O. boxes and DHL Packstations?
Currently we only ship to addresses within Germany. The invoice address can be different from the delivery address and also be outside Germany. We're sorry, we are unable to ship to P.O. boxes and DHL Packstations.
How long does delivery take?
After an order is placed, it takes about three workdays for it to be delivered. Please note in particular that there may be occasional delays in delivery due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Is there an express service?
We do not currently offer express delivery.
Can I have orders giftwrapped?
We're sorry, at this time we do not offer a giftwrapping service for home delivery orders.
Who delivers the packages?
Our shipments are delivered by DHL.
Why have I received a different article than I ordered?
It can occasionally happen that, for example, wine of a certain vintage is sold out sooner than expected. In cases like this, we deliver the same wine but of the next vintage without consulting you, provided that it is equivalent in terms of the type of wine, price and quality.
How can I return articles?
We’ll inform you as soon as your order has been dispatched. This email includes a link to the DHL returns page, where you can generate a return label. Please print it out and attach it to the package. Then take the package to a DHL branch near you. You will not be charged anything. Make sure that the returned merchandise is properly packaged. Please also note that articles may only be returned free of charge within two weeks after you receive them and only if they are in perfect condition, unless they were already damaged or spoiled on arrival.
