If you are not too fussed about smoking "brands" the greeks have some cheaper ciggies, Assos were around 22 euros for 200, they also had some cheaper ones at 10 euros for 200, I think they were called Leader and were definitley smokable, depends what you want really.

Put quite simply, there is no legal limit on the quantity of alcohol or tobacco you can bring back from an EU country, provided that it's for your own use. (This doesn't allow you to bring it back for friends etc)
Following a court case (involving Hoverspeed) C&E must have "just cause" for stopping you, such as intellegence to the effect that you are a "regular traveller" bringing back large quantities, you are known to be selling your wares or that you fit a particular profile. You are quite at liberty to ask why you have been stopped.
I believe that there is another case pending.
I had a case where a guy was stopped, after leaving Dover, by the police because his van was overweight. C&E pitched up aand seized the van and its load. Where was the just cause in that - they had let it through the official checks at Dover without question.

It takes all sorts hot FM, I personally am glad that there are plenty of people of your type out there cos it makes people of my type feel good.
I got some quotes for having a complete kitchen put in just before Xmas, they came back between £8-12,000. I saved by doing it myself cost £2500 + a months work. I learnt alot by doing it and enjoyed peoples compliments. So I saved approx £6000, at £2000 per month thats three months income, took a month to do therefore I can do what I want for two months, it's paid for.
Actually since I am a believer in the 'saver' mentality and I've got new kitchen cupboards to put my saver baked beans in, not to mention the fact that I don't go running towards the nearest 'designer' rubbish then I can probably take four months off while those who follow the capitalist advertising hocus pocus are hard at work and wondering why people like me are sat in the sun for a couple of months.
I tried afew different packets while in Corfu last year, but i found Leader Red were very good and at a euro a packet well worth it. The only thing i find is that if you bring a load of cigs back with you, you tend to smoke more, that's my excuse anyway. Happy Holiday.

I am not sure about the relevance of the above statement by hotfm. Yes I can see your point with regards to the fact that if we are saving at least 50% of the cost of our normal chosen brand of ciggie, why then change our brand to save a few pennies more if the brand we are changing to is of inferior quality. Fair enough. I get that. But the whole "you people" & "value brands" whats all that about? There are people, plenty of people who are obviously less fortunate than you (financially speaking) who not only buy "value brands" but who, quite frankly could not manage without them. And guess what, they are not all smokers. I just feel that your comment is somewhat insensitive. I thought we were all Corfu LOVERS!
