Buying cigs

My son has asked me to find out if he can buy English Cigs in Pas De La Casa. He is taking a weeks ski holiday there from this weekend.

Mums are a fountain of information but this one leaves me stumped lol, would anyone know the answer please?

Have not visited Pas but you can buy cigarettes in the supermarkets in Arinsal, they have a good choice and were cheaper than the U.K last year.

I would expect it wil be the same in Pas.

Cigs in Pas will be sold by the boat load, but just remember you are outside the EU so the limit is technically 200 per person.

Thank you for the information guys, I will pass it on to number one son lol.

I don't know how many he intended to buy but I'm guessing it will be more then 200, just hope he's not stopped at the airport in France.

huge selection at Pas... about 2.30e a pack for Marlboro etc.... cheaper brands on offer too... so about 70% cheaper than UK....

The worry is not getting stopped at airport in France ,, as by that time he will already be in the EU.... the checks are at at And/Fr border they do checks...

Less so if on a bus or coach......

If he makes it past the And/ Fr border ..... and then on arrival at his destination airport in the eu goess through the eu arrival channel ... there are usually no customs or checks... so he should be ok....

All cigs in Andorra are obviously not stamped with EU duty paid ... so are identifiable.....

He should be ok ... so long as he is not buying 1,000's
