While VAT rules can be applied differently in every European country, the standard VAT rate in France is 20%. But here's the good news: you don't have to pay that.

Wevat helps you recoup at least 13% of the price of goods while shopping in Lyon, a 23% higher refund than what you'll be offered by in-store providers. So use your app! Don't rely on in-store services.

“We are excited about providing a convenient and hassle-free way for travellers to Lyon, France to access their VAT refunds,” says Wevat co-founder and CEO, Raphael Chow. “The Wevat app makes tax-free shopping convenient, efficient and reliable for all non-EU travellers."

Bypass receipts filing, documentation, and mail-in procedures with technology that instantly scans your sales receipts at the point of purchase. The app stores all your purchase invoices on your phone and transforms the refund you're entitled to into a barcode you scan at any Wevat supported departure kiosk throughout Lyon. All kiosks are visibly promoted and marked in airports and train stations so you should have no trouble locating one.

Whether you're shopping in-store, or simply want to shop online when traveling in Lyon, you can download the app from either the Apple Store or Google Play, register your ID and choose your refund deposit method to get the process underway.

There are no partner store restrictions and your refund can be generated in one of 50 different currencies by credit card, bank transfer, AliPay, or WeChat Pay. You'll get up-to-date notifications on the progress of your refund and you can monitor the process using the app’s built-in tracking feature.

You also have access to a multilingual Wevat support team should you have any questions or concerns.

A recent Wevat user says, “Had a great experience with Wevat. Just got back to the UK from France yesterday and the tax refunds are already in my bank account. There’s also the advantage of not having to walk around with my passport, plus asking for invoices is much easier than the paper tax refund method, in my experience.”
