There is no duty free within Eu...but the cigarettes will definitely be cheaper (3x) in Prague than in the Uk...alcohol is not that cheap, although probably cheaper too.
The cigarette prices are state controlled, so cost the same wherever you buy them, not so for tobacco. If you are after something like Virginia Gold, then buy in town, don't wait for the airport shop.Edited: 05 October 2013, 12:45
Thanks for the info, most appreciated.
fudge110>>>>>>>>> Cigarettes and tobacco are much cheaper in Prague. Buy cigarettes at Prague Airport as they are the same price as in Prague but a better choice especially international brands. Don't buy rolling tobacco at the airport as it is much cheaper to buy in Prague.
Here is a quote from me on a similar topic -
'For cigarettes, I would buy at the airport, as they are the same price as in Prague. There is a good choice, especially international and some UK brands. With Prague airport, you can visit the duty free shop after you land. The best duty free shops for choice of cigarettes are just before the passport control.
I usually buy Golden Virginia from the Kiosk in the middle of Namesti Republiky. It's at the end of Na Porici (street), in front of Unicredit bank. He speaks some English, and has plenty of stock at prices much cheaper than airport.'
And this is the topic it's from which may be helpful -
Thanks for that. Golden Virginia was the one we were worried about. Can now relax on two Xmas presents.
Yes, GV is available both at the airport and in town. The kiosk in the middle of Namesti Republiky is a good place to buy and a fair bit cheaper than airport. It is available in other tobacconists, but I'm not sure how widely it is available.Edited: 07 October 2013, 20:34
The last time it was mentioned, the price for 50g was between £6.50 - £7...circa half price of that in the UK
How much allowance (tobacco) does one have? to bring back to the UK?
