Real-time Refund to Alipay wallets now offered at 14 airports in Europe

28 July 2017

After a successful pilot launch across Global Blue’s selected airport refund points in Europe last February, real-time VAT refund service on Chinese Globe Shoppers’ Alipay wallets has been extended to a total of 14 major airport locations in Europe.

For Chinese Globe Shoppers travelling to Europe, 70% of which favour collecting their cash or credit card refund at airports, these new locations represent valuable new refund options, speeding up their Tax Free Shopping journey and improving their in-airport experience right before they leave the country.

These 14 airports now include Milan Malpensa, Barcelona, Madrid, Berlin Tegel, Amsterdam, Hamburg, Rome, Helsinki, Stockholm, Munich, Copenhagen, Zurich, Frankfurt and Oslo. Over the coming months, the service will be further rolled out across Global Blue’s Refund Network.
