“免税店”的英文是什么?


“免税店”是指一类特殊的零售店,顾客在这些店里购买的商品不用缴纳本地或国家要求的税收,也就是税费被豁免。在英语中,免税店的英文说法是:duty-free shop(s),或者duty-free store(s)。这里的duty,意思是“税收”。“-free”,意思是“减免”、“免掉”。而shop, store意思接近,都是商店的意思。

免税店在机场中最为常见,通常仅针对“离境”游客。这些乘客会在一国购买免税商品,并将其带回本国。游客们往往对免税商品非常感兴趣,因为经过免税后,一些商品会变得更为便宜,价格更具吸引力。

最后,我们可以参考Wikipedia对Duty-free shops的英文解释:(Duty-free shops) are retail outlets that are exempt from the payment of certain local or national taxes and duties, on the requirement that the goods sold will be sold to travelers who will take them out of the country.
