Free holiday or weekend break for smokers!!!!!!!

OK I know the best deal here is not to smoke at all or try ecigs etc. or smoke really cheap brands or roll ups but, if you're stupid enough, like me, to regularly be smoking premium brand cigarettes, then you may be interested in this.

My example. (assumes £1 = €1.1)
A packet of 20 Marlboro Gold costs around £9.50 each in the UK.
In Spain they cost €4.85 (from the government controlled Tabac shops, found everywhere).
Therefore each packet bought in Spain costs you approx £4.40, therefore saving you £5.10 per packet.

I smoke approx 5 packets a week. So every 6 months or so I fly to Valencia (because I love it there), stay for 3 nights in an apartment in the city, have a fantastic time, buy 15 cartons (10 packets per carton) of Marlboro Gold, and save over £400 net.

Here are the calculations for my next trip:
- Easy jet flight Gatwick to Valencia end of Nov. £82 return
- 2 bed apartment in Calle del Turia €40 a night for 3 nights
- Train fare to Gatwick £27 return
- Tube from Valencia airport to city centre €3.20 each way
- Meals out (estimate) €80
- Ticket to see Valencia v Granada €35

I know it's cynical but you can also get a free weekend in a local hospital with an exacerbation of COPD caused by smoking when your in your early sixties. Free food, steroids and IV antibiotics screw Valencia the pound ain't what it used to be anyway... discuss!

If you honestly think this is a deal then I'd say you are smoking more than just tobacco

Normally do the same myself although Portugal is my choice destination. Have a friend who takes it to the extreme a little and she flies into Barcelona and returns on the same day with her next 3 month supply.

is this a joke? you're honestly telling people to import goods themselves as a deal, ridiculous that you'd even consider posting this

If it's £9.50 a pack, you could just stop and have a free £2500 holiday every year instead.

Love the irony here no ifs or butts (excuse the pun)

£9.50 a pack *eyes water*. I was outraged when they hit £6.

Go to Belgium & double your money from travel costs..

Or sneak them over the border between Malaga & Gibraltar & treble it.

Or even better just buy a container load & import under "waste paper"

Whats wrong with it?

Easier though to go to local corner shop and ask for marlboro lights please the ones under counter mate.

Not called e-cigs no more it's Douch Flute

I might take up smoking just for this deal! I'm all for a free holiday!

As a Ex smoker its a great idea but on the flip side it's better now im free https://media.giphy.com/media/eg1veigFTj8pq/giphy.gif

Great deal heat.

I used to smoke but I gave up, appreciate its difficult to give up but health wise it's definitely worth it, hope you manage to give it up at some point.
