Can anyone give me advice on the VAT? The last time I was in Paris, I arrived at the airport armed with my receipts, but never saw anywhere to deal with the paperwork. I flew on Delta out of CDG, if that matters. The reason that I am asking is that I would like to get an enamel Hermes bracelet while I am in Paris, but am wondering if I should just get it in the US. If only the exchange rate is taken in consideration, the answer is the US. What about if the VAT is taken in consideration? Any tips would be appreciated.
