The price of cigarettes will change from May 15 in France and in Monaco. This is a consequence of the tax increase on the cheapest cigarettes and tobacco packs announced in mid-March.

The objective of the latest increase is to force the hand of manufacturers, who had chosen at the beginning of the year not to hike cigarettes prices despite tax hikes decided at the end of 2016 by the French government.

Packs of Lucky Strike red and Winfield blue go from €6.50 to €6.60. However, the price of Marlboro, the best-selling brand, remains at €7. There is some good news for smokers: Camel’s are due to drop in price from €7 to €6.90.
