Firstly, if you check HDUK you can get 15% off your ferry trip like I did. This post is not just a tip for Game BUT also ToysRus and Carrefour who all have Wii's in stock.

Yesterday went over to Calais for £28 including the car. We found our way down the A16 towards Bolougne to Cite Europe, an absolutely massive shopping complex with lots of shops including a few english ones including tescos (no suprises there) and a big Carrefours.
We walked straight into GAME and got a Wii plus game for 249 euros,(do the maths here) a nunchuck and controller for 60 euros. Combine this with your christmas shopping and get booze & fags (not fags in Cite Europe though they don't sell them) to sell on to friends etc you could pay for your trip. We had a smashing day out and no longer need the sit by the computer or run around different towns looking for Wiis. Why pay Ebay prices etc Wii wii? xxx

Lighten up a bit, I think a few bottles of booze and packs of fags aren't going to hurt anyone. If you're bringing a truck back then thats a different story.

I think Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs have much bigger things on their minds - like maybe finding a couple of cd's for instance :-D

If you REALLY want to save on cash, pop over the Belgian border (if you can be bothered), to find that Cigs are even cheaper than in France and is it something like 2000 cigs per person within the EU? Something like that (much better than the 200 allowance from the US!). Either way, cheap "smoking" or whatever :)

I heard HMRC where informed from nintendo not to allow any Wii's though unless the Wii had a full UK passport and full UK power leads rights :thumbsup:

:roll:

personally dont give a s..t what anyone does but i know 30 years ago people in tax office used to read personal columns in newspapers to find people doing cash work and weve moved on we are now on the brink of big brother technology so writing that on a website seen by possibly thousands of people is foolhardy 1 pack of 200 fags or a vanload makes no odds to them its defrauding H .M customs if you went in a shop and pinched something you wouldnt put it on HUKD ...... shop is easy to rob from

Under EU law, you are allowed to bring back as many fags as you want, providing they are for personal use, although good old customs quotes the maximum as 3200. Just make sure your puffing one when you get on the boat :thumbsup:

How does one lose a crossdresser?!:)

well blimey I only meant a few packs not more than 3/4 anyway! I would be more concerned about unintentionally bringing back some of the dodgy looking individuals hanging around the docks... much bigger fine involved here!! lol he he!!:whistling:

dont forget to also top up car with cheaper fuel for another bargin, fags in france are not that cheap, best bargins on smokes are the boat or spain.
also take tesco clubcard as points to be had there also , though its only a booze outlet.

if i wanted a wii , i would consider this rather than sitting endless hours with sore eyes on pc, great day out also.

Indeed - a short drive to the Belgian border and you will find the first street has about 20+ fag shops selling cheap smokes!

Don't bank on Wii's being available, we went 2 weeks ago, and nowhere had them within 50 miles of Calais - we ended up getting from Argos, and Wii play from Amazon.de.

If you book the ferry through www.day-tripper.net you can get PO for £18 on a saturday for car + passengers.

I don't think petrol is any cheaper but diesel is about 20p per litre less so arrive with as low a tank as possible.

I bought 20 litres of fuel and it cost me 26 euros. Haven't worked that out yet either! I think if you go midweek to France you are more likely to get Wii's rather than at the weekend. Beer was incredibly cheap as well, for example a 24 pack of Koningsbier was something ridiculous i.e 3.49 euros. Cheaper than water!!
