Duty Free Shopping in Courchevel
In France, all retail products are sold with a 20% Value Added Tax (VAT). However, non-EU residents are eligible to claim a refund on VAT on purchases over €175.
Happily, Courchevel’s Avenue Montagne is included in specific tax-free shopping rules only found in a few places outside of Paris.
You can save hundreds or thousands of Euros as you fill your bags in high-end ski stores, brands like Dior and Chanel, and other winter-themed pop-up boutiques during the winter.
Be sure to ask shops for VAT-free shopping options and correct documents to claim any refunds.
As Courchevel is classed as a seasonal tourist area, shops are able to open 7 days a week meaning you can shop all day on Sundays. General opening hours run from 8.45am until 7pm. These times can vary from shop to shop.
Also, be aware that many shops close during lunchtime so it is best not to plan any shopping sprees during 12h00-15h00. We recommend shopping in late afternoon and evening as Courchevel lights up during sunset.
Courchevel hosts a regular market every week generally on Wednesday. The small market is located below the main Croisette lift building.
You’ll find a range of local treats including cured meats and cheese, regional liqueurs like Genepi, classic souvenirs, and a selection of winter garments.
