Canary Islands have been duty-free since 1852 with a low duty and low VAT. and low customs duties. That's is why there is a very small difference on prices in normal shops and in the airport.

Almost everything can be bought cheaper in the shops here, than what you have to pay in the airport or on the plane. Think about is, before you buy or order.
On the south side of the Island, the vacation resorts have their own malls. Most are built  because of the Tourists, and the prices are according to. It is therefore a good idea to notice what the goods costs in other shops. Often the goods  can be acquired for half price in the smaller shops. Feel free to visit our advertisers under Shops.
( Remember - in many shops  there are Siesta about  13.00 - 16.30 )

Now it would be inexpedient to bring cigarettes and liquor here, as Gran Canaria is an EU member, but not is considered as an EU-country what duties are concerned.  It is much cheaper down here.  About customs the rules are the same whichever way you are travelling, that is you can bring the same quantity with you here, as you can bring home.
You have to watch yourself, if you travel via Andorra, and feel like buying duty-free there, as it is a "duty free" state. Then you are in big trouble! Andorra is not an EU member and it is only legal to buy 200 cigarettes and on litre of liquor, and bring to Spain. The border control between Andorra and Spain is very tough.

The Island has a sales tax (VAT) of 4.5% making it one of the cheapest destinations in Western Europe.
