The company will be World Duty Free but they are not allowed to advertise prices apart from at the point of sale.

237SJ , thanks..

Your friend will only be allowed to bring in 250g of tobacco duty free:


If he (or she) is travelling via Reykjavik Airport, there's a Duty Free Iceland store there:


250g of Amber Leaf tobacco costs 7,999 Krona in that store, which is equal to £46.21 at the current exchange rate:

Going to Iceland Chris 

^^^ I assume, Hoppy, that Fender62's friend will be returning to the UK.  I've never known it to be any cheaper to use a UK duty free store on the outbound trip than to use an overseas one on the return journey.  Also, there can potentially be problems with UK customs if it can't be shown that the goods were purchased outside of the UK.

It's why mums go to Iceland.

my friend says the brand they like is not sold in iceland, if they sell it in gatwick duty free, and then fly to iceland and then back, would that be ok, im not sure how it works, i dont want to give them bad advice..

Yes it would be OK.  I'd keep the receipt though.

Check and see if they can be purchased and collect on return a lot of airports do this now
