    anybody help please :)

    basically, im going to Turkey on friday for a week with my OH, and my parents want me to bring them back some cigarettes and some tobacco. We are both not too sure about what the legal limit is on bringing them back, so if anybody that has either been to Turkey or knows the legal limit, it will be much appreciated and rep will be added for the useful answers

    Thanks guys and girls

    In the EU I believe there is a sub law which states as long as it's for personal use and you can carry it it's yours.
    At barcelona airport last week there was a family with literally their suitcase FULL.

    Google is your friend.

    one thing, Turkey isn't in the EU, which is the reason why i chose there as the euro exchange rate is terrible at the moment! its like 90p for 1 euro where as its 2.4 turkish lira for £1 which is a good thing for me

    Is the correct answer. I dont know if its me but I have noticed a lot of people on here lately expecting information to be handed on a silver platter without using a search engine first.

    A simple search of google with the words duty free allowance or tobacco allowance would have given an answer within seconds. The OP can give as much rep as they like but its lazzyness.

    thread spoiler! i would rather of asked the people on HUKD because they may know and its easier than hunting about on google and possibly finding out a false answer which may resort in customs on the way back in to the country!!!!

    I traveled there in feb. came back with 6000 fags& 8 kg baccy

    The information on the heathrow or customs website is far more safer then what people say on here unless you know people on here personally otherwise this is an open forum where anyone can say anything.

    Hunting about on google --- Are you joking me. Pure lazzyness put in the words I suggested. It will be either the first or second hit. You dont even have to hunt around you liberty taker

    Nah - I bet you're secretly scared of gOOgle - it's those two O's watching you makes you shy :whistling:
    Of course really you just wanted an excuse to chat and let people feel good about themselves by helping you out.

    I've been to Turkey the last three years and it seems to be more expensive each time - things like taxis and dolmus (buses) are pretty cheap, local beer isn't too bad but imported beer and spirits are pretty expensive - last year we were full-board but the year before (staying nr Bodrum) a full breakfast was 4euro.

    2.4 to the pound sounds quite good compared what I got last year (I can't check exactly now as I booked it all through my work e-mail account).

    I hope you have a great time. :thumbsup:
