7 Reasons To Do Your Tech Shopping At The Airport

London Stansted Airport makes tech shopping at the airport simple.

We know that a lot of our guests are focused on their journey – we can’t blame you, we’d be excited if we were flying too – so we like to keep shopping at the airport quick and easy. Working with trusted brands like Dixons Travel, we deliver high-street beating prices. And, by breaking down every aspect of your tech shopping experience, we’ve created a super-smooth journey that’s sure to be hassle-free.

Don’t believe us? Take a look at these 7 reasons to do your tech shopping at the airport:


1)  Advice From The Best In The Business

With so many incredible products on the market, it feels like you must spend hours researching every tech purchase. That’s okay for some, but we know that not everyone has time for that, especially when you’re getting ready for a big trip. We’ve combined our years of aviation and retail experience with the tech knowledge offered by the experts at Dixons Travel to deliver outstanding customer advice. As you’re shopping at the airport you’ll be able to quickly find key facts and get the knowledge you need to make the right purchase without being bombarded with useless information.


2)  Whatever They Offer, We’ll Beat It!


Whether you’re preparing to hit the streets or browse the web, finding the perfect tech deal can be difficult. Thanks to our unique position in the market as an international travel hub, London Stansted Airport offers exclusive deals unavailable anywhere else to those shopping at the airport. And, our partnership with Dixons Travel lets us offer their fantastic ‘double the difference’ price guarantee* so we can match the best deals on the high-street.

3)  Get Your Tech On Time

No matter what deal you’ve got or research you’ve done, we’ve all had the nightmare experience of a brand-new piece of tech failing to come in time. Of course, it’s even worse when you need something for your travels and it doesn’t turn up. Thanks to our innovative click and collect service, you can be sure that when you order through our online store your shopping will be waiting for you to come and collect it in the terminal on your day of travel.


4)  Avoid Baggage Charges


If you’re worried about your tech weighing down your luggage and leading to costly excess baggage charges, remember that any shopping at the airport done once you’ve passed through security isn’t included within your weight allowance. All the airlines flying from London Stansted Airport allow you to take one bag of airport shopping on board along with your hand luggage - so there’s no reason to avoid stocking up on all our exclusive deals.


5)  Leave Your Tech With Us While You’re Away

We know that you might not want to take your tech abroad with you - scaling the peaks of Everest is so much harder when you’re weighed down by your brand-new luxury hairdryer. To help you reach your mountain expedition goals (or even your relaxing on the beach goals), we offer a collect on return service where you can pick up your shopping at the airport after your return flight. Simply pay for your new purchase then speak to a staff member and inquire about collect on return - they’ll handle the rest.


6)  A Jaw-Dropping Range To Choose From!


You might think an airport can’t offer the range of a high street store. After all, there’s only so much space in the terminal, right? Wrong. With London Stansted Airport’s click and collect service we’re able to offer a range larger than most high street stores and websites – simply reserve your products and we’ll get them delivered to the terminal for you to pick up on your way through.


7)  Stress-Free Returns (We Promise)


At first, it can be hard to see how returns work at the airport. However, our trading partners have shops across the UK, so if your brand-new power pack just isn’t in the right colour for your post-holiday mood all you have to do is visit your closest Currys or PC World to return your tech - and hopefully find a power pack that suits the ‘new you’.


Now you’re in the know, treat yourself guilt-free to some shopping at the airport with Dixons Travel’s brilliant range of cutting-edge tech – safe in the knowledge that you’re about to embark on the ultimate shopping journey.
