We are planning on going to Greece for our honeymoon in September 2017. Has anyone gone through the VAT process for a Cartier piece? If so, what was the final cost of the bracelet after VAT. (Greece's VAT rate is 24%)
Hi - while I have never done VAT refunds in Greece, I have in other places in the EU. Refunds tend to vary between 10-15% depending on the country. Google will be your best friend in this. I was in France over the weekend and had I pulled the trigger on the love cuff it would've been around 3900 euros after the refund.
I bought my second love bracelet in Athens back in 2014. It is the 10 diamond YG. The price of the bracelet was 13,000 Euros. If I remember correctly the VAT was put back on our card. The amount was a little over 2,700 euros. Hope that helps!!!
