Cheap cigarettes

Posted 29th Feb
Has anyone been abroad recently?

I'm due to be visiting a few places around 'Europe'

Does anyone know the going rate for a sleeve of Marlboro Gold or Sterling Dual Capules in the duty free's?

P. S. I know its a terrible habit

Why is Europe in brackets?

Around £50 for Marlboro, will be less for Sterling, maybe around £40

Madrid was around 55 Euro in the airport for the Marlboro (on Thursday). Noticed they had no Stirling Dual, guessing they have possibly stopped stocking as the ban is due on May 20th, or I was blind! Normal Stirling was 47 Euro as bought a carton for a work colleague. L&M's around 38-40 Euro.
Can get you the pricing in Paris in 2 weeks times if of interest.

It's all part of the menthol ban coming into force. (I work within supply chain). Pricing may also increase as Track and Trace compliance comes into force in the EU, whereby at distribution level we have to be able to trace every carton serial number throughout the supply chain. This off course costs money which may not be absorbed by some. It should have came into force last year, though the UK and EU where abit busy with something else lol.

Rizla have a new product which is in stores now which is a "flavour" card you place into the packet for a while to give the menthol flavour.

I'm so pleased I managed to quit. I don't think I could afford to smoke today etc.. So expensive, would probably be forced to buy dodgy fags from black market which could possibly be fake and far more dangerous etc...
When I went Tenerife the B&H Duel were around 25 euro a sleeve x
In Poland it will be £25-£30

Are you now allowed to buy cigarettes from EU airports now at duty free prices? Always been off limits whenever I've been at EU airports travelling within the eu

Dublin and Belfast didn't, though in Madrid they had dual pricing for within EU and outside EU.

No, during the transition if you're flying to the UK it is not considered a non-EU destination from the EU. (NB Tenerife is not in the EU for Customs purposes).

Yeah, I have seen dual pricing at most airports. The others were strictly non EU destinations (like we do at UK airports)

I had actually read your first comment as "not allowed" rather than now allowed lol. In Belfast we could only ever buy if flying outside of EU, though on the way home most other EU airports had dual pricing and allowed you to buy at the EU pricing. Mind you leaving EU or not, I was returning to Dublin Airport rather than Belfast.

So are you saying, if someone was going to Tenerife, they would pay non eu duty free prices? (the cheaper price)

Yes, hence why @parisp is quoting such a low price, but non-EU limits are lower, eg just 200 cigarettes, in comparison to EU duty paid quantities.
