To claim a refund you must:
- Spend $300 or more in the one store and get a single tax invoice
- Buy goods no more than 30 days before departure
- Wear or carry the goods on board and present them along with your tax invoice, passport and boarding pass to a TRS facility
- Claims are only available up to 30 minutes prior to the scheduled departure of your flight
