Although the prices at UK airports maybe duty free the mark up is substantial when you compare to other airports around the world.

For example 200 Marlboro Lights at LHR is about £24 whereas in DXB they are approx $16 and in CAI approx $15 and this is just one example I can think of and I think the obvious reason for this is the high levels of rent charged by the operators for retail space.

I for one never buy anything at LHR Duty Free as its nearly always cheaper at my destination
