shopping in Andorra
« on: April 26, 2018, 13:49:31 »
Shopping in Andorra can be one of the main activities , a lot of interesting prices due to less tax; specially on tobacco , alcohol , electronic etc; and motorbike equipment  ;D but be careful because Andorra is not in EU and customs service are harsh , on both side (to France and to Spain) . Be careful they have "flying customs service" and they can stop you far from the border (both sides).
What you can bring:
1,5 liter of alcohol or 5 liters of wine
300 cigarettes or 150 cigarillos or 75 cigars
75 ml perfume or 375 ml cologne
900€ of manufactured merchandises
(given as indication, have a look on customs site for more informations)

A lot of bike/pilot equipment shops; main are AMR which have many shops whose one is for "adventure & off-road" (Av. de Santa Coloma, 75
AD500 Andorre la Vieille) (very small shop and not too much choice IMO) , and Motocard with also 3 shops.
My advice, check prices of what you need, and see if it is interesting , we have now a lot of web sites with nice prices too .

I use Motocard quite often. You can go to other shops, check sizes and then order online with home delivery ;)

Perhaps some better prices on the post; I know they cannot make same prices if they want to sell in France ...

Seems you have 17 minutes walking to take the bus on the main road, a total timing of 40 to 50 minutes with the bus ... Do not know if you have more then one by hour ...  VCIF_ok
