Can you get Menthol cigs in Rhodes as thats all I smoke ,if so roughly how much are they Thank you
You can normally get menthol gigs on Rhodes as I bought some for friends last October. There was quite a good choice but I recall Lambert and Butler, Mayfair and Berkeley. Price wise last October they were about 36€ a carton. Don't know if they've gone up since.
They're still half the price than in the UK. Don't know where you'll get them in Afandou as I stay outside Lindos but there will be somewhere.
Hope that helps
I forgot to mention that the price should be the same wherever you buy them as all the packets/cartons are price marked. They are the same price in the airport as in the normal shops.
You can get most brands, they will be around 40 euros for 200. They are price fixed all over the island, so no point 'shopping around'. Try the local brand 'Leader' - I normally have Marboro and like them - plus they're only 2.30 euro a packet!
If you don't find what you want in the shops / supermarkets, go to the tobacco kiosks, found at the roadside on most routes. They may look like little huts, but they're well stocked and plenty of variety.
If you find a brand you like and want to bring some back, buy in resort - I find the selection at the airport not so good.
As you say the prices are fixed so ther is no point in shopping around to much. I've always found that if you buy with your credit card they also charge you 2 - 3% extra. I'm just off on my fifth visit but can't recall seeing the kiosks on the roadside. Where are they located?
