Average price of a pack of cigarettes in the Netherlands 2005-2018

Average price of a pack of cigarettes in the Netherlands from 2005 to 2018 (in euros)

by Brigitte van de Pas, last edited Aug 9, 2019
Average price of a pack of cigarettes in the Netherlands 2005-2018 In the last 13 years, the price of a pack of cigarettes in the Netherlands increased by nearly 70 percent, from just 4.60 euros in 2005 to 7.70 in 2018. In the same period, the annual inflation rate was never above three percent, peaking in 2012 and 2013 at 2.5 percent. This suggests that prices of cigarettes grew much faster than the CPI.
International comparison: the price of cigarettes in the Benelux region

   Of all the Benelux countries, the Dutch clearly paid the most for their cigarettes. A pack of 20 cigarettes in the Netherlands sold for 6.16 euros on average, whereas in Belgium for the same pack you would only pay 5.88 euros in 2018. Cigarettes were cheapest in Luxembourg though: 20 cigarettes on average cost just 4.60 euros – the same price smokers in the Netherlands paid all the way back in 2005.

 Expenditure on cigarettes in the Netherlands 

Consumer expenditure on tobacco products reached over 4.1 billion euros in 2017. Roughly 2.7 billion of this came from the sales of cigarettes. On average, Dutch spent just over 150 euros per capita on cigarettes. This came down to approximately 20 packs per person per year.
