This is a fun short and awesome way to go from Italy over to Switzerland to get bargains on high end fashion for your souveniers. We were able to afford a Prata purse for all three of us for the normal price of one and I also got a pair of Dolce and Cabanna shoes. I rate this excellent! 8/18/13Reviewed by: Teresa C, August 2013

We just need to sit in the coach and the driver drive us to the shopping outlet, when we reach the border, we so lucky that no need to check passport and get down the bus. so the whole journey only take less than a hour.We enjoy the shopping and the return bus wait for us just outside the entrance of the shopping mall.Reviewed by: Geok khim GOH, Singapore, March 2013

Self-explanatory - it's simply a shuttle bus trip to the outlet. Best deals were at Gucci and Lacoste. We walked away with several bags from Fendi, Gucci, and Lacoste. Dior prices weren't that discounted and matched the same rates offered at the Dior outlet located in Southern CA. You must spend a minimum of 300 CHF at one store if you plan to claim a VAT Refund. This wasn't too hard with the goodies we bought at Fendi and Gucci. However, our total at Lacoste was only around 230 CHF. The minimum is quite high compared to other regions. In Italy, the minimum is only 154.94 EUR and in France it is 175.01 EUR to qualify for a VAT Refund.
TIP: Be sure to get your refunds stamped at the border on the way out. The shuttle bus will stop and allow time to get this done. Once this is completed, you can obtain your refund once you're back in Milan (or any other city) at any of the refund locations. Just make sure they accept Switzerland vouchers. Some refund offices will only accept the local vouchers. They really try to make it difficult for you to get your money back! You will NOT need to show these items once leaving EU. The only items you need to show at the airport are the ones that still require a stamp from customs.Reviewed by: Darling Nikki, USA, October 2012
