I've traveled several times to Europe and only once was I able to successfully get back my sales tax.
Since the sales tax in Germany is now 19% I'm trying really hard to get a refund this trip.
Does anyone know some 'insider' tips? I've read the page on this site that tells how it's 'supposed' to go, but how does it REALLY go? I read on the VAT site that you can take your items to Global Refund sites that are not at the airport. My problem with the airport is that I'm taking a connecting flight from Munich-Frankfurt and because of the early hour I won't be able to stop at the GR stand at Munich airport.
Any help is appreciated.
