Apparently there is a duty free shop in sharm town and you need to go within 48hrs of arriving to get the duty free. Sorry a don't no anymore about it but i think i read it in the general advice and tips at the top of the forum

If your flying with easyjet then duty free in Sharm has a good selection of UK cigs

If not then at the UK airport if you want UK cigs

There is a Duty Free Shop at Soho Square and in Sharm but as Jendo86 mentions you do need to go within 48 hours and take your passport I think. We were just outside of the time scale and they were really strict. If not, I would recommend the shops inside the hotels. They are monitored quite closely so need to sell the real thing. In supermarkets if you see the popular brands really cheap - dont buy! We bought a packet of 20 and they were fakes and tasted vile!

Have a great holiday - I went in Feb and it seems ages ago!

u can buy them in any supermarket as well may not be real thing but there ok i always have red l&m's when im there and there just like mayfair for the price there good but be careful they still try rip u off when i was there in may there around 150 egyptian for 200 which is roughly which is roughly £15

but like whats been said about duty free there is one in soho sq also in naama bay but take passport with u and u should go with 48 hrs of being in egypt

When you arrive at the airport in Sharm you can buy from the duty free on arrival. Or as others have said go to Soho square in a cab and buy from the duty free there. Defo proper cigs you can purchase 600 per person but you need to take your passports and go within 48 hours.

Although we went once after the 48 hours once and they let us purchase but I wouldn't risk it as they also turn people away.

I don't smoke but bf bought L & M a local brand and got 200 cigs for about £8 or something ridiculously cheap.

Don't think you can Mayfair over there, only popular brands. I always stock up on the plane going over or at uk duty free, approx £36 for 400. I smoke menthol and find limited availability over there. £11 for 200 cigs in the Metro and never ended up with fakes. Don't buy from street traders or markets.... Ended up with fakes once and they were gross
