duty free or on the plane

I am going to buy some vodka and wondered if I should buy it at duty free as its udually on offer or buy it on the plane as some times it about the same price. Saves lugging round in the airport. Any advice?

I bought 2 litres of Smirnoff vodka on my Thomson flight to Enfidha in December, £22 for 2 litres.

I think it was the same at Gatwick too but not 100% certain.

Thank you nearlydone, i try to help where i can, lol.

As for the trip, im not at all sure on this one, been a lot of confusion of late as to if you can travel there or not.

I would check the FCO website for starters.

Wish i was going back so soon, December seems like years ago to me now since my last visit to Port El Kantaoui!! : (

I don't always have time to browse the duty free shops at either Edinburgh or Glasgow Airport

"Last minute Larry" ... being a smoker !

Although the wife dashes in to get some free perfume skooshes!

So I get some on the plane, and my baccy!

As Julie say they usually have a wee discount if buying 2 bottles.

I usually get 4 bottles !

But these are used for gifts.

Works wonders when wanting a room upgrade at hotel;-)

Also on arrival at Enfidha ,you can use the duty free shop.

So if you want more booze, gifts or cigs have a peek at their offers before heading for the coach.

Regards

Hick!

May sound like a wee alkie here lol but can u buy your 2 bottles on the plane plus buy another 2 at the airport then? Thought the limit was a litre per person?

Up to you if you want to risk it but it is only 1 litre of spirits per person, and that is going into Tunisia too.

I have gone over with tobacco, 500g more than i should of between two of us and was never stopped at Enfidha or Gatwick.

Like i said, up to you if you want to risk it.

It was the first time ever for me buying the vodka, on a plane or airport. Only got it just in case i didnt like the local booze, which i did, lol.

Took both bottles home for my Sons.

Lets hope the money man comes to visit you soon. Riveria seems all booked up with tc now. Seems on the late deal you have to book early now. I looked last week and it had gone up. So glad we booked early. Getting excited, dont put your case away now hopefully you can use it soon. Julie.
