Sorry to sound daft, I take it the duty free arrivals store is in the airport? Are the prices likely to be cheaper than on the plane? I'm thinking cigarettes/tobacco. Also, what are the allowances for taking home to England please?

I can't wait! Flying out on Friday for a week, never been to this area before, just Kusadasi/Ephesus on a cruise x

Antalya is usually quite a lot cheaper for cigs than the plane. We paid about 30 euros for 400 West lights. Alcohol is cheaper in the UK duty free, or on the plane cos they both normally have 2 for £20.
