2.3 Allowances and concessions
As an international traveller you are entitled to bring into New Zealand a certain amount/value of goods that are free of Customs duty and exempt Goods and Services tax (GST). This is called your duty free allowance and personal goods concession. You may be liable for Customs charges if you exceed the New Zealand quantity or value limits on arrival into New Zealand. Your purchases may also be confiscated at the overseas airport(s) you are travelling to, so we recommend you check the duty free allowance and personal goods concession for the country you are travelling to. You acknowledge it is your responsibility to understand these limits and any liquids, aerosol or gel security restrictions.
For more information on your duty free allowance and personal goods concession, visit the New Zealand Customs Service website at https://www.customs.govt.nz/personal/travel-to-and-from-nz/duty-free-shopping/.
2.4 Collections and flights
Collection: Your orders must be picked up at one of our Collection Points – there is one at Departures and one at Arrivals in our International Terminal. When you collect your order, you will need to show your passport and a copy of your order confirmation. You will be asked to inspect your items and sign for your order to confirm acceptance.
Flight updates: It is essential that you promptly tell us if your flight details or flight time has changed so we can update your order or if you miss collecting you order so we can arrange a return and refund.
Types of promotion: The Mall may offer different types of promotions including:

In addition, The Mall may also offer promotional codes from time to time as part of a promotional offer from us or together with one or more of our Retailers.
