We are thinking about going to Fuengirola in May. Can anyone tell us the price of Embassy No 1 cigarettes in Fuengirola and if there are any tabacs within walking distance of the Hotela Piramedes.
I seem to remember seeing one in the middle of Malaga on one of the side streets. I'm also now thinking there was one near the cafes on the main street not far from the port, but that depends on where the ship docks.
Unfortunatley I couldn't swear to any of them and my memory is a bit sketchy.
Your best bet would be to ask a local or at a cafe where the nearest Tabac is.
I'll ask a local.
Also if you look at the HM Customs website, it tells you the same.
Gibraltar is not in the EU so that's why you can only bring 200 out.
Seems like Thomas Cook have got it wrong, Linda.
Thomas Cook didn't get it wrong.
3,200 is the guideline for bringing cigs
intothe UK, but the law for taking them
outof Spain still states 800.
Technically, they are within their rights to confiscate anything over 800 and impose a fine.
Spain treats anything over 800 as export and you should have an accompanying document, but these documents are as rare as rocking horse poo and when you ask for one, the tobacconists look at you with a blank stare.
The best advice I can give is....
Keep hold of all your receipts from the purchase of tobacco products, preferably in your pocket until you're back in your own house....this will at least prove you have paid the Spanish tax on them (IVA).
Another I know of is in C/Keromnes. Located in barrio La Malagueta area just past the bull ring.
You could ask a taxi driver for these addreses if you dont fancy the walk.
Or you could ask him "por favor, hay estanco cerca por aqui?".
thanks for that info, very useful.
Not sure about what "por favor, hay estanco cerca por aqui?" means so will try and walk to one I think
Cigarettes remain unchanged.
A friend is going to Costa del sol next week,can anyone tell me how much I will need to give him to get me 200 Fortuna or Ducados?
I have booked an overnight trip to Torromolinos to stock up on cigarettes as i have just been made redundant.
I land at Malaga at 20:15 on a Sat night and fly home on a Sunday.
However, a friend has informed me that the Tabac shops will all be closed.
Is he correct?
If not could anyone please tell me of anywhere that will be open late on Sat nights or open on Sundays within travelling distance of Malaga ?
As a last resort there is always the airport (a bit more expensive) and there is a tabac shop just outside.
Only tabac shop i could find open on a Sunday was outside departures at Malaga airport on the 2nd floor (same level as railway station).
