Hi! I read somewhere that Cartier watches can cost less in LHR airport comparing to US. Can anyone confirm this? I know someone said its cheaper to buy in a boutique in US vs in Europe but I haven't heard about LHR.
Thanks for clearing that up. I would still shop around as prices in Heathrow for most luxury goods tend to be more expensive than US prices.It's 20% but when non EU residents claim the VAT refund it ends up being less because of the handling fee. So the actual refund its not 20%.
I also live in the UK and got a love ring, it was around 17.5% off the price in the london boutiques and also in Bulgari if I rememberI don't understand that. I live in the UK and VAT was increased from 17.5% to 20% in January 2011, with no exceptions.
