A rough "rule of thumb" is that UK Duty Free Tobacco is half the price of the same brand Duty Paid.

Maybe tell people which brand if you want prices for. You might get lucky and get prices for both ends, duty free in the UK and from a store in Canada.

Tobacco prices in Canada are very high due to the taxes imposed (totally appropriately IMO).

#4 yes we all know buying the fags in duty free will be cheaper than buying them in UK or Canada so not sure why this question is being asked

Marlborough Gold are £64 for a carton of 200.

They may be cheaper on the plane, but it will depend on the airline and also availability.

Post #2 -agree. He’s going to buy them even if it’s only £1 cheaper.

Just check what the Canadian allowance for bringing cigarettes in is. Australia only allows 25 or 25g of tobacco.

I'm sure nowhere else is as tough as this but better to find out before!

I think Hong Kong allows 19 cigarettes (so, really, one part used pack).
