European Cruise Duty & Tax Free Retail 2016: AVAILABLE NOW

With Europe expected to account for a third of global cruise passenger traffic in 2016, the Mediterranean, North European and Nordic regions offer significant potential for the Duty & Tax Free retail sector.


This report presents extensive new intelligence and insight, taken from brand new in-depth research among key cruise travelling nationalities in the European region. With actionable insights and recommendations to maximise growth, our findings are designed to provide the information necessary to improve perceptions and shape shopper behaviour in both the on-board and on-land Duty & Tax Free retail channels.  With detailed analysis of core categories (including Alcohol, Beauty Confectionery, Tobacco, Fashion & Accessories, Jewellery & Watches, Electronics & Travel Accessories, and Souvenirs) this report also provides the tools necessary to drive future category development and brand recruitment, whilst also overcoming purchase and visiting barriers.  

Coming soon and priced at £5,000 (GBP), this report is based on in-depth research with 750 recent European cruise travellers and represents essential reading for those wishing to increase sales within this exciting channel.

In addition, as with our other cruise research reports, a ‘European On-Board Cruise Alcohol Consumption' supplement report is also available for an additional £1,000 (GBP).
