I saved over £200! Airvat prepared my tax form for me and I got it stamped at Heathrow airport before flying home! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I was able to get money back on all my high street shopping without filling out long tax-free forms by hand. Hope Airvat starts a new service for VAT refund on online purchases soon as well!
Fantastic app for tavellers visiting the UK! I found the Airvat app very straightforward and easy to use. I flew out from Gatwick Airport and received my payment after only two weeks
At first I was really confused about how to claim money back on my shopping. Understanding the VAT retail export scheme and minimum purchase requirements is not easy for a foreigner. Thankfully Airvat makes getting your VAT407 form stamped really simple
This works in every shop and makes the tax rebate approval procedure for overseas visitors so much more straightforward! This app has revolutionised travel shopping in the UK!
Airvat has changed shopping for international visitors. Everything in one place on my phone and the VAT refund form prepared for a quick approval at the airport customs.
Airvat is the best travel app for tourists visiting the UK! Much better value than using Global Blue tax refund at Heathrow airport!
