Cigarette quotas at Bodrum Airport

i was just wondering at Bodrum airport are they getting stricter on bringing back more than your allowance of cigs, having been for the past few years and brought back to uk more than the allowed 200 cigs a friend has told me that they are now charging you with smuggling if you have more than 200 is this true or just a rumor as i have never had a problem before i understand that in uk they take them off you at the airport, but to be told that in turkey they are charging you with smuggling seem extreme to me as im sure they are very aware that peple bring more than thier allowance, surly they see them when they x ray the cases? any advise would be recieved greatfully !!

I heard of this last year when we leaving from Dalaman. Best bet is to buy them from duty free once you've gone through passport control and putting them in your hand luggage, I brought back six sleeves. I also had cigs conficasted when I came back to Lanzarote, but customs didn't check my hand luggage!!

Sometimes the airlines deals are just as good so take up your normal allowance with them and stash the rest away

We brought extra back two years ago only to have the lot confiscated at Glasgow airport. It's a chance you take.

Get your limit on the way out, pack them, then buy more on the plane back, that way you won't be over the limit in Turkey[:0][:0] Does that makes sense[:I]
