The next time you're flying home to Singapore, feel free to pick up 10 bottles of wine without incurring any additional damages to your wallet. The good folk at DFS Changi have decided to absorb all local duties and taxes above and beyond the current duty-free alochol limit for travellers returning to Singapore — certainly a move we'll toast to.
At present, Singapore Custom's duty-free allowance allows travellers to bring in either one litre of spirits, one litre of wine, and one litre of beer; two litres of wine and one litre of beer; or two litres of beer and one litre of wine. Additional purchases are subject to duties and taxes upon arrival.
Sounds too good to be true? Well, there is one catch. You can only choose from a collection (slated to rotate every two months) of 25 New and Old World red, white, and sparkling wines, with prices of each bottle starting from $28. These duty-paid wines allow passengers to enjoy savings of up to 70% versus domestic prices.
Those spending more than $300 on this duty-paid collection will also have their purchases delivered to their home on a complimentary basis. So if you're stocking up for the festive season, now's a good time to pad your cellar.
