Marlboro Lights run around 680HUF a pack, not sure about B&H.

Approx £20 for 200. There is conflicting information on websites ranging between 200 per person to 800 per person duty free. You dont get the same duty free allowance as elsewhere in Europe but not sure why not.

If you look on the Heathrow airport website it tells you how many.Just a word of warning.Check what your buying if you use the great market.

Terence: Why the comment about the central market? Are you just talking about cigarettes or other things there? Do you feel you got cheated on one or more items? Can you expalin further?

do you mean they weren't quality Hungarian but rather Romanian or Ukranian? You have to read the country or origin on the carton. But, fake ? I've been to a cigerette plant and it takes hugely complex and expensive machinery to make them.

I used to work for a major whisky producer: a colleague had a photo on the wall of his office of him standing in a factory yard in the Czech Republic, surrounded by hundreds of cases of our major brand - all fakes (from memory they were filled with tea fortified with grain alcohol.).

So yes, fakes of international brands exist everywhere, it is a huge 'business', which, in the case of whisky, the SWA do their utmost to combat.

As for the OP, he should be aware that major cigarette brands bought in places like Hungary may have been produced in the Ukraine, rather than the US/ UK. He should draw his own conclusions from that statement.

The limit is 800 cigarettes before questions are asked - it changed in October 2011 hmrc.gov.uk/customs/arriving/arrivingeu.htm

And I can vouch for what RomanCitizen says above - I am working on a similar 'whisky' case and it is more widespread than you might think.
