SHOPPING TIPS & TRICKS

In stores every item should have a clearly indicated price, with VAT (PDV) included, and if the item is on sale it should be marked as such.

We are not a culture of bargaining, but some shops offer a discount on cash payments!

Keep in mind that our salespeople are not assertive in their sales tactics, so do not be shy to ask for any information about the item you are interested in. They will be more than happy to assist you.

Do not forget to exchange your money from Monday to Saturday, because banks and exchange offices are not opened on Sundays and national holidays.
