END OF TAX FREE SHOPPING IN THE UK. Find out more what this means for merchants and partners.

Cash Refund Kiosks now available downtown

From now on, travellers will be able to get their refund back while still shopping in the city

Global Blue introduces “Early Cash Refund Kiosk”, enabling retailers to provide a great tax refund experience with minimum space and effort.

Our objective was to make it as simple as possible for Globe Shoppers to get their cash refund back in a few steps:

  1. Scan passport and complete personal details
  2. Scan Tax Free Form (from any retailer)
  3. Insert the credit card (for guarantee)
  4. Get your cash refund
  5. Take receipt confirming the refund

Besides having more money to spend, it also removes queuing time at the airport for Globe Shoppers.

Early Cash Refund Kiosk was especially designed for department stores, shopping malls, outlets and tourist information centres. Property owners and surrounding merchants may enjoy high footfall within their perimeter and benefit from tourists’ increased purchasing power. Also, in comparison with downtown refund offices, this new modular kiosk requires much less space.

Future features will enable the refund to be reimbursed directly onto credit cards and digital wallets.
