The system is integrated for purchases at a variety of hotels, shopping centers, malls, and other retail locations.

Tourists will not be required to carry paper invoices to claim the refund, which they can collect in cash or transfer to a credit card on departure through one of Planet Tax-Free 100 self-service kiosks available at 13 airports or ports in the UAE.
