I have often found that the plane is the cheapest place to buy them.
Hope you have a great holiday
We flew with Thomson,got L/butler cigs on
aircraft going out for £40 for 400.
Also got Golden virginia tobacco on aircraft.
Duty free at airport was more dearer,the duty
free at airport wanted £32 for 250grams of
G.Virginia,I got 500grams on aircraft for £37.
If you are with a well known airline,you can
look at their flight magazine before you go, &
check prices on line.
Please note that the plane stocks up with duty
free in U/K, They do not stock up at a foreign
airport,so if they sell out of something going out
there will be none coming back.
Also do not buy any cigarettes offered to you by
the locals on the beach,these cigs are duds.Edited: 5:06 am, June 10, 2011
£2/pack is quite expensive, tax-paid cigarettes (such as Marlboro) cost less than £1/pack in Indonesia, so somebody is making a lot of money at £40 for 400. I would suggest trying Monoprix or other proper supermarket. The duty free outlets are not necessarily cheaper than tax-paid for either booze or fags.
Coming back last March from Tunis airport - 400 cigs were 45 euros - believe they were Dunhill. Wherever you buy, I would think difference would only be around 5 euros.
Enfidha duty free was expensive, all priced in
euro's,there was a bar code machine that you
put the item against,this gave you £ sterling &
other currency price.
What somewherein london has put about cheap
cigarettes, in another country,its like me saying
its cheaper in Tenerife I was getting 200 for £6,
so 60p a pack.
But you are going to Tunisia so you look at their
prices,I can tell you now its cheaper for cigs on
the plane, than at U/K or Enfidha airports.
Back from holiday. Outbound from Manchester Airport 400 B&H was £45, on the flight to Enfida it was £39 for 400 cigarettes, inbound at Enfida airport duty free it worked out as£37 for 400 Marlboro Red.
I am not a smoker, but we looked at prices of cigarettes in Enfidha airport and they were marginally cheaper than on the aircraft. Please note that the aircraft duty free was MUCH cheaper than the prices at Manchester airport, and also that they had sold out of half their stock before they even started to sell stuff on the way back. This is because the aircraft does not restock in Tunisia.
Word of warning - you will be offered very cheap cigarettes on the beach or on the streets from a wide range of sellers - less than a tenner for 200 cigs. DO NOT buy these as they are fakes and often contain noxious chemicals such as arsenic.
I smoke Mars and buy them from shops in resorts, 200 sleeves for around £12, they are not a bad smoke
