Big savings available to canny shoppers willing to travel for a bargain

There is no denying we love a good deal, whether it’s discount codes, vouchers, sales or just being able to get something cheaper somewhere else.

In fact, 58% of us consider ourselves to be a ‘savvy shopper’ and 37% know someone who is a ‘serial bargain hunter’.

One place that has always been known to have lower prices is the duty-free section in airports, on planes and ferries.

The top duty-free purchases, according to research by Stena Line, are fragrances (47%), alcohol (44%), beauty products (23%), confectionary (16%), jewellery (15%), tech products (13%) accessories like sunglasses (12%) and kid’s toys (7%).

Aston spoke to TV presenter & consumer journalist Alice Beer.
