    Probably be best to pick them up in Duty Free on your way down. That's where you'll get the best price and maybe the best selection of British brands.

    i would say the best place would be wal-mart. Im 100% sure of this, because they charge you about 21-22 USD. I am not sure what that translates into your currency, but that is really cheap compared to the prices here in that states. If you do not want to go to wal-mart, you can maybe buy them at the airport, if i remmember correctly.

    Otherwise you will be stuck buy them from the hotel zone, and that can get fairly expensive (depending on how much you smoke).

    Walmart is cheaper than the duty free at around $22 per carton. The only brands you'll recognise from the UK are Bensons and Marlboro Light.

    Hotel zone expect to pay $35 per carton.
