How to shop tax free and save money at Montevideo's Tres Cruces bus terminal

To save money at Tres Cruces use either the Benefits card (smiles tourist/sonrisas touristas) or Visa smiles credit card (both really worked for me)

How to get a Benefits Card

  • Ask for the benefits card at the customer service desk on the main level at Tres Cruces.
  • The card is free and can be used in any shop within Tres Cruces to take advantage of discounts and shop up to 14.4% tax-free.

Tres Cruces Visa Smiles

  • Visa smiles is a credit card of Visa, Scotiabank and Tres Cruces.

How to use Visa Smiles

  • You can use Visa smiles to shop in any VISA shop( within and outside Tres Cruces)
  • Shopping using the card accumulates points (smiles) that you can redeem for a gift cheque at all Tres Cruces attached ticket offices.
  • Visa smiles gives you access to direct discounts at all visa affiliated Tres Cruces stores.
