The price of a packet of cigarettes or rolling tobacco goes up on Wednesday as the government brings in more measures to stamp out smoking. A packet of cigarettes will cost €1 more, taking the price to around €8.20 depending on the brand. The price of rolling tobacco will rise up to €2.40. At the same time, smoking will be banned throughout Schiphol airport from today and Dutch railway company NS says it will ensure all platforms are smoke free by October. NS is also reducing the number of shops at stations which sell tobacco products.
