Question Where Is The Best Place To Buy Ciggies - At The Airport Or In The Port?

Hi
I don't smoke but I promised to take some ciggies back for my friend.
She smokes Lambert and Butler - I want to get the best price for her so my question is - are they cheaper in PP or at the airport? I have seen them in PP for 33 Euros.
Any advice would be gratefully received

There shouldn't be much difference in price between the Duty Free shop in the Airport or the Tabac shops as, I think, they are still regulated.
You will find enormous variety in the Tabacs wherever you are, and they give excellent value for miney.
I hope this helps.

Thank you for your replies
If they are regulated, am I correct in thinking that there is no need to price comparison - they all charge the same price?

I have always found the tabac shops sell for the same regulated price but they are always more expensive at the airport. Best to buy in the port

I agree with Whaley, airport prices are higher than the Tabacs.

Below is a handy link to the "official" government prices for tobacco.

Eurotabaco, tobacco, spirits, change, in Benidorm Costa Blanca

Airport is way more expensive. Every tabac shop I was in were exactly the same prices as attached. No need to shop around.

Agree with the above other than particulary at this time of year some places give 'freebies' like 5 lighters/minatures/gifts.
