DUTY FREE / DUTY PAID

Duty Free no longer exists for travel within the EU but you'll find Duty Paid shops at most airports in Greece. As most of the airports tend to be quite small you’ll find the Duty Paid shops are somewhat smaller than at your UK departure airport. Nevertheless, you should be able to buy the more popular wines, spirits, cigarettes and perfumes and the Duty Paid shops normally accept payment by credit/debit card.

cigs
Cigarettes have the price stamped on the packet and should cost the same everywhere in Greece. You may be able to buy some other items less expensively in resort, or in the main town, than at the airport. It may also be more convenient to buy locally and pack your bargains away securely before getting to the airport. The number of cigarettes you can take back in to the UK, provided they are for your own personal consumption, is limited only by the airline's baggage weight restrictions. Well, that's the theory, in practice UK Customs can get a bit curious if you have loads of 'em.
