Hi I'm 15 and im going to germany soon.
What are the laws on me bringing back cigarettes or alcohol into the UK?
I'm only talking about bringing back a few packs of cigarettes and a few bottles of alcohol so nothing in commerical amounts

Just read more comments so i've just updated this/
say i put them in my suitcase would i be able to slip under the net?
like don't just hand it in then get it back after the flight?
so they shouldn't know my age when checking it right?
plus whoever asked im going with school not my parents.
Plus a decent fake ID doesn't hurt.

When it comes to fags and booze you can bring back whatever you want so long as it's for your own use and you bought it legally.

If you get in the airport shops you'll be fine.

i disagree.

how can you call vast amounts of different whiskeys, vodkas etc crap???

just because duty free dont do much lager
#14
If you can buy them legally you can bring them back.

You can't, so you're gonna have to get someone else.

There's fag machines on the streets. You CAN easily use them underage.

well despite what the average pit monkey "knows" you are actually allowed to carry fags into the country (just not to purchase them in either country)

you have an allowance of like 100 i think?

also drinking age for beer and wine being 16 in the fine country of Germany means this young fella stands a chance


ohh Germany i'd love you so if you weren't so scarily efficient, and spoke English (although then you'd just be England with a lower drinking age and really juicy blond birds )
#20
The allowance is 2,200. Although you're not allowed to buy cigs in germany until 18, I got served whenever I wanted. And yes, their cig machines do require identity cards.

I went with a school coach trip and customs never searched us.

Most people in Germany can speak English pretty fluently, it's about 60% I think (or it felt like that when I lived there), and the birds are FANTASTIC. Honestly, it makes you want to move (makes me want to anyway )

On topic, good luck getting served, you're bound to need some kind of vaguely legitimate looking ID to get served anything.
If you manage to get this done, the limit is enough for your own personal usage (which I'd assume is no more than about 800 fags and several bottles of spirit based alcohol, so don't go totally overboard or customs will make you chuck it away when you get there)
I hope it doesn't seem, like I'm young, foolish, and green.
Let me in for a minute, you're not my life but I want you in it

Surely they'd be suspicious if you didn't use your passport at an airport

Duty free. Airport. Abroad. Passport.

They're obviously going to ask for your passport.
#26
I think im going on a plane though
if their in my suitcase will it get searched?
#27
Suppose you're right on the whole passport business; I'm guessing any tourist who looks slightly underage is going to have to use their passport as identification.
Sounds like TS is pretty much screwed here.

You can get your suitcase searched just for looking shifty while you're walking through customs.

Yep.

I went to Portugal last week and they thought I had a 'suspicious item' in my arm cast lol.
Today is yesterday's tomorrow.
#29
I bought some back when I was 16, just before the age went up to 18 though. I just had 30 boxes of 20 cigs in my rucksack. They didn't show up on the scanner thing, or they didn't check to see how many I had. I think they aren't looking for non-metallic objects which are legal in both countries.

Have you ever tried that stuff? Like the £4 bottle?
Christ almighty, it'll make your eyes water (and not in a good way).

EDIT: But boy oh boy oh boy, does it get you very drunk.
After a whole day eating nothing but curries I was wankered after me and my friend mixed it with a load of coke and lemo.

You have a 10 litre limit, and you have to buy it at the Airport

I live in Germany...cig machines require a bank card or drivers license with a special chip...

alcohol is easier to get though..but back when I was 16 the machines didn't have this yet ^^

That accent just makes it so much better.
And don't get me started, I just hear "Schweinstieger's missus" and I'm already nursing a semi *drools*

Just put it in your suitcase, and don't mention it at customs. If you get searched, say you forgot you had it, adn they will take it away, chances are nothing else will happen.
