Cigarette prices

We are going to be staying at Club Faru in July and were wondering what the prices were like in resort or is there somewhere at the airport we can buy them if they are cheaper any advice would be gratefully received or are we better buying in duty free in the UK.

Also one last thing are there any local brands of cigarettes available.

Many thanks

Hi Holiday Lover

You haven't said how you are travelling -direct or via Dubai. If the latter buy in Dubai if direct buy duty free in UK. You can buy on the islands cheaper than UK but dearer than duty free and a more limited choice. On the way back buy in Dubai if possible if not Male is only marginally dearer

Regards

Doug

Actually they are normally not too bad on quantity coming in ie you can get away with 400 duty free each

If you talk to the staff or do the trip to Male (15 Min's ) you can get ciggies cheaper than duty free - the shops in male do the main brands and as the others say there are brands like B&H , Marlborough, Kent sometimes L&B. On the island ,they are cheaper than UK but not as cheap as from Male or duty free. Cant remember seeing any "local "brands but then I prefer Menthol which are rare.
