Refund of confiscated goods

If the goods you bought at CPH Airport are confiscated in a foreign airport you can get your money refunded by Copenhagen Airports A/S.

All passengers can purchase goods in the Tax-Free stores at Copenhagen Airport, just as they could before the rules relating to restrictions on liquids in hand luggage came into force.

Perfumes, spirits and other products composed of liquids and fluids are supplied in a transparent, sealed bag. As a passenger, you must ensure that the bag remains sealed and unopened throughout the trip.

On a stopover?

If on your journey to the destination airport, you have to make a stopover at another airport, and you are carrying a bag containing tax-free goods from Copenhagen Airport as hand luggage, the bag should remain sealed and unopened throughout the trip.

If you have complied with this rule but still have items purchased at Copenhagen Airport confiscated at the security check of another airport, Copenhagen Airport guarantees that you can have the cost of your purchases refunded.

So remember to ask for a receipt when you purchase your goods, and proof that they have been confiscated, as refunds cannot be made without this.

Are you traveling to another EU airport and return within 36 hours?

If you return from your destination airport within 36 hours, it is now possible to include your goods purchased in Tax-Free at Copenhagen Airport in your carry-on luggage. However, the goods must remain in the bag, which must be sealed and unopened throughout the journey.

Written request for refund

If you have had your goods confiscated, you must submit your claim, proof of your loss and your bank account number and registration number in writing to Gebr. Heinemann Retail at Copenhagen Airport at the following address:

Gebr. Heinemann Retail ApS
Varegård Øst
Kastrup Tværvej E
DK – 2770 Kastrup

or via mail to

Please note that the guarantee is valid until further notice.
