English fags and suncream !

Sorry to sound like a neandothol ( don't even know how to spell it ! ), can we get English ciggies such as Benson & Hedges over there ? Also, is it worth us bringing tons on sun cream ( about £5 = $10 a bottle here ) or is is easily available at a decent price once we get there ?

Apologies for the most boring question ever !

You can get suncream there, probably cheaper than here (any Walgreens), no idea about ciggies tho, sorry.

I'm surprised the title of your question got past the TA censors.... :-)

You'll struggle to find UK cigarettes anywhere in Vegas. Previous poster that confirmed that you can get Benson & Hedges is probably thinking of the US brand of the same name which is a totally different animal to its UK namesake.

If you must have your preferred nicotine fix then buy duty free supplies as you leave the UK.

Benson & Hedges used to be available here..probably a little different version. I know I have seen them in the stores where I live.

I remember there ads years ago...I'd rather fight than switch.

Your best option is to get cigarettes at the airport when you depart the UK.

Some airlines you can pre-order duty free for the return journey, although, the duty free shop at McCarran will sell them when you depart (assuming your flying direct to UK).

As for sun cream, I would take a guess, and say definitely cheaper in the USA.

Doc, I am laughing too. I was going to yell at the OP for such a nasty title, but my Mum used to call them that too.

I can't stop laughing.
