I have been asking myself the whole time why the Mavic is so much more expensive in Europe than in the USA.

In the US the Mavic costs 999$ (930€)
whereas in Europe it costs 1199€ (1289$)

I do understand that it costs more in Europe, but 1:1 ration would have been fair enough

Probably due to the EU charging more for imports.  Same could happen for U.S. with Trump wanting to charge for imports from China, but mainly US companies outsourcing their products to be shipped back to the U.S.

Don't forget, in EU we pay VAT which in most EU countries is ~ 20% or even more....US have a tax (sale tax I think it's called) ranging between 7%-13% if I remember correctly and it's based on the state you live in.
so the VAT it's on top of import duties and taxes....
what I did, as my country is not using EUR as local currency, was to place the order for Mavic Pro FMC on Amazon UK (before price rising) and it's cheaper than on Amazon DE or IT by ~ 100 EUR (based on my local currency conversion rate).
Now, after price rising, it's better to place the order in EUR as the price in EUR was not risen as it was on GBP (at least for me).
