Availability of cigarettes?

We, four golden oldies,will be visiting Agadir for four weeks in February. My sister must have her cigarettes - she smokes Silver Cut , Silver label. Can anyone please advise if this brand is readily available? Thanks in advance.

Thanks John,

That is the plan if they are not available readily. Indeed it might help to limit her access to the cursed fags. On previous holidays she would be forever looking for cigs to bring home [at lower prices!]

I presume you mean Silk Cut silver?

I have never seen Silk Cut on sale anywhere in Morocco. Plenty of Marlborough, and I have often seen Bensons and Dunhill, but never SC.

but she can try Moroccan cigarettes, for example Marques or Fortuna. Marquis cost 19DH and Fortuna 20DH. I smoke Marquise and I find them very good. And cheap of course :)

Thanks to all. Sorry for getting the name wrong - it is indeed Silk Cut and I understand that Silver is the lowest strength - obviously I am not a smoker. It appears from information you supplied that many international brands are available. Which Moroccan brand would equate with the mild Silk Cut Silver?

Are cigarettes available in supermarkets or only in specialised tobacconists?

Thanks again.

Reply number 1 is very good oprtion as you are flying into a non EU country.

Better still when returning home from Agadir, get you cigarrette at Duty Free shop at Argadir airport. Silk Cut is available there and dead cheap. (Strange at it seems, that duty shop does NOT accept Dirhams, although you are still in Moroccan territory. Payment only by Euros, £ or credit/debit card). If you have any Dirhams left over, you will need to change them back to your national currency at the Bureau of change at the airport.

Silk cut is NOT widely available in shops in the town centre. In fact, I would be surprise if you see them anywhere!!. Also, be aware of cheap imitation "snide" cigarette brands!!!

Cheers

Cas
