Duty Free - Faro Airport

Hi, I usually wait and buy my perfumes at the airport on my return home from holiday as there is more choice and cheaper. Please can you tell me if this is worth doing at Faro airport or better to buy in Albufeira.

There seems to be a reasonably good selection at the airport but I guess if you saw something you really liked in Albufeira you wouldn't pay much different. The consideration being of course that unless the bottle is tiny, you have to put into your hold baggage as airport security will confiscate it if it's in your hand baggage.

Hi, there is a good selection of the usual brands at the airport, I didn't see much in the way of perfume for sale in Albufeira. If you want to buy alcohol & tobacco, the prices in the shops are very good, but again some good prices in duty free also. Beware of carrying liquids back home they are as strict at Faro airport as in the UK, & we saw several bottles left behind on a table at the entrance to airport security.
