Tobacco price increase.

Just read elsewhere,that the price of tobacco,beer etc has risen dramatically.Rolling tobacco has seemingly doubled in price.This aint good news for a lot of tourists who enjoy their beer and a smoke.Not looking for a smoking / non smoking slanging war on here,just passing on what I read.

1. Re: Tobacco price increase.

Hi, we went October and tobacco/Cigarette prices are about half price when compared with UK (so not as cheap as Greece for example). We smoke Drum White and bought it all separately (all was fine, although a little dry). As for beer, it seems pretty similarly priced to the UK, but we did find places that were charging 2 euros for a pint - others 2 for half a pint. It will not take you long to find your own places. There is a little bar across the road from the Venus Hotel on Tomb of the KIng's Road (sorry, I don't know its name), and they were selling beer at 2 euros a pint. The food was also plentiful and cheap - they served both English and some Greek food. Seemed to be popular with Brits who were staying all inclusive at Venus! Hope this helps.

There's an article here from the Cyprus Mail (online version of the English newspaper) which explains the price increases on cigarettes and alcohol.

52 Euros for old stock too.Doubling their money even before the increase comes in officially. Good bye to the ciggie runs.

Unfortunately , smokers , drinkers,motorists are volume consumers and easy targets for raising extra revenue for governments that fast squander all our 'tax' payments on a whole variety of corrupt or failed policies.

As a non-smoker you have my sympathy but please keep buying your cigs as in a round about way it means I probably pay less in other ways
