This year why not make the most of your hard-earned cash and join us on our ever-popular shopper to Adinkerke tobacco Road and the Belgium border. Every year, thousands upon thousands of British make the annual pilgrimage across the Channel to stock up on the many cheap bargains.

Since January 1993 and the relaxation of the customs allowance laws, which means far greater quantities of goods can be brought back into England, we have carried thousands of satisfied customs over to France and Belgium many of whom have returned with a full years supply of booze, cigarettes and tobacco.

You will spend approximately 1 hour in the Pidou beer and wine cash & carry before travelling the short distance to Adinkerke and the Belgium border affectionately know as tobacco road. Here at leisure you will have the opportunity to browse the many Tabac’s that sell English cigarettes, cigars and baccy at prices well below those found in the U.K.

We depart late evening on the dates shown – Returning home the following day late afternoon / early evening at your original departure point
