cutting taxes out of Heathrow

cutting taxes out of Heathrow

  1. Anonymous

    i am flying next week from London to New York dose anyone know whats the best way of cutting taxes by flying direct out of Heathrow to New York

    Are you referring to VAT refunds? If so, see here:


    If you mean the airport taxes on an actual ticket, if you’re flying out of Heathrow you have no option but to pay. Can you originate elsewhere?

    If you’re redeeming miles, try to avoid British Airways miles, as those have the highest carrier imposed fees

    Yeah, there’s no way to avoid UK APD taxes unless you’re only connecting at LHR.
