Gatwick to Cancun - Cigarette prices please :-)

I'm flying from Gatwick to Cancun in Sept on the dreamliner. Can anyone tell me whether it's cheaper to buy 400 cigarettes in duty free at Gatwick or on the plane. (Pall Mall, L& B or Bensons)Also if im correct in thinking we can only take 200 each in Cancun? Many Thanks

Hi Caron,

In the past (including flying out to Cancun from Gatwick with Thomson last year) I've always bought my cigarettes in the airport prior to departure as I don't think there is much difference in the price. Also, something to take into account, the airlines may not hold the your preferred cirgarettes. However, what I would say is buy your Duty Free cigarettes at Cancun on your way back as they are substantially cheaper than on the aircraft ... and everything is price in USD.

Yes, the limit is 200 on the way out/in.

Thankfully, as of 4 month ago I no longer smoke cigarettes .. although it isn't easy:)

Regards,

Pat x

Hi Caron,

Prices for cigarettes on Thomson flights from Gatwick in link below. I always find its cheaper to buy onboard than at the Duty Free in the airports but you can now compare the prices with the list below if you print it off and take it with you :)

Just to add the cigarette allowance for Cancun is actually 400 per person going in but coming home back into the UK its only 200 per person.

Pat no worries, as you have now given up you would not have any interest in cigarette allowances anymore I guess :))
