Tobacco, Cigarettes and Cigars

Cigarette prices up in smoke!

France has long had some of the cheapest cigarettes in Europe but is now, like the UK, trying to persuade people to quit the habit.
Gone are the massive 50-60% savings that smokers manage to enjoy for so long. In 2004 there have been 3 prices rises and there will be a fourth in January 2005. This means that the prices in France will have doubled in just one year!

You can however still enjoy savings of around 25% as the table below shows:
