No raise to limit - they will tell you that you can take more but they tell you the limit for taking stuff OUT of Turkey not INTO the UK.

As Turkey is not in the EU you are only allowed what i said in my first post,nothing has changed..In the dutyfree in Turkey they will tell you that you can take more just to get you to spend more..Its when you get back to the UK you would be over the limit and risk getting it took of you and sometimes even prosicuted...

In Dalaman duty free I was told that we could take an extra pack of tobacco,we bought it for our son ,on arrival at Stansted we found out that we should only have one pack each.Luckily we were not checked.

In Dalaman duty free 5/6/2013 after buying 200 duty free cigarettes, I got to the checkout where after scanning my passport I was told I could buy 1800 cigs and 1kg of tobbaco to take with me, (my passport told them this?) dont belive them they are only trying to sell more, you are only allowed 200 cigarettes anthything over you can have confiscated, beware!

Stanley, you can only bring 200 back from Dalaman (or any country that is not in the EU).
