For those who like a quicker trip to Adinkerke, this is the one for you. Our trip to Tobacco Alley in Adinkerke is a quick dash for those in need of getting good value smokes and cheaper drinks. As of the Brexit change the allowance stays the same for at least the end of the year. This is not a leisure trip in that we don't spend much time in either Adinkerke or Pidou Warehouse. Please be aware that given the extra security in France, there could be added delays.

From Luton, we travel directly to the terminal. Journey time through the tunnel is approximately 35 minutes. Our first stop in France will be at one of Europe's largest Shopping Centres - Cite Europe. (FOR THE DESIGNATED DATES ONLY) Passengers who disembark here will have 3 hours to roam the shopping centre and will be picked up upon the coach’s return from Adinkerke. (A 1 Euro coin is required for trollies at Cite Europe and Tobacco cannot be purchased here.)




If you wish to purchase cigarettes and tobacco the coach will continue on across the Belgium border to Adinkerke. (1 hour stop in Adinkerke) - The shops in Adinkerke will accept sterling, cards & euro's! The coach will then proceed to Pidou where you can do beer and wine shopping – we allow 20-30 minutes for this and then we head back.


Dependent on traffic, passengers aboard the coach on its return from Adinkerke will be able to roam the shopping mall if there is time within the 3-hour time slot for the passengers who disembarked at Cite Europe.


Please note: The above timings and information are subject to traffic conditions and we reserve the right to make any changes necessary without prior notification.


You can pre-order your purchases either on-line or check out the prices before you go.
