Chinese travelers love to shop when abroad, but brands should target them long before they step off the plane. Fifty percent of Chinese travelers research duty-free shopping options before their trip, and savvy brands have implemented strategies to reach them. SK-II, for example, offers detailed information on where products can be found at duty-free shops abroad, complete with detailed maps and the option to reserve products at airport shops. L’Oréal Travel Retail also allows in-store reservations from Chinese-language sites for brands such as Biotherm and Urban Decay, which are not sold in China.
