Buying cigarettes

Am I right in thinking you can only buy cartons of cigarettes in tabacs? Can anyone tell me whether Silk Cut cigarettes are availableand if so how much they cost, also do tabacs generally accept credit cards? Not planning on getting loads, just a couple of cartons. Many thanks.

No idea on price (though suspect marginally cheaper than UK) or if they sell Silk Cut but usually they do take credit cards and they will sell cartons if they have them in stoch as well as single packs.

I don;t smoke but i have occasionally bought some for a friend- there was a maximum transaction of one ''cartouche'' at a time at a tabac last time i bought them

Most places will take credit cards

If you wander across the border into Italy I think they are cheaper again.

Most brands are 5.70 euros for a packet of 20 (or at least I think that was the figure a couple of weeks ago). There is much less price variation between brands than there is in the UK.
