Botlek Stores

offers goods and services to all seamen from ships that visit the Rotterdam Harbour and it's surroundings. We do so from two locations inside the Rotterdam area (Botlek and Europoort). Through the years (since 1960) we have developped quite a lot of knowhow about what seamen need and this has resulted in a unique assortment of articles that one will not find anywhere else under one roof. Combined with our wide range of services this makes many of our regular customers grab the phone as soon as the ship has moored to ask for our free transport service.

Money Transfer

Send money to your loved ones from Botlek Stores. MoneyGram agencies are to be found all over the world; also near your home. Bring your passport and sallarycheck to proof your identity and the source of the money.

Resize watch

When you have selected a watch from our extensive collection, you can have it resized for your wrist while you wait.

Perfume testers

For the hundreds of Perfumes and Eau de Toilettes we have in our collection there are testers available for you to try and so to enable you to find exactly the fragrance you are looking for.

Telephone sim-card services

Phone cards from many major operators are available at Botlek Stores. We almost always have a solution for your specific phone card wish.


All articles bought at Botlek Stores are covered by international warrantee issued by the manufacturer.


At Botlek Stores we offer a range of Duty Free alcohol and tobacco products. These Duty Free products are only available for seamen from sea-going vessels.

Foreign Currencies

Botlek Stores accepts most foreign currencies; we give you the best possible rate of exchange! A much better rate than you will get anywhere else! Beware that this makes a huge difference in what you can actually buy with your money. At Botlek Stores we find “Value for your Money” very important.

Free Transport

We offer Free transport to the shop and back to the ship


You can find whatever you need at one of our shops.


Beside a very interesting shopping experience you can also relax and have a refreshment, and maybe meet old friends or colleagues.

Free transport
