No, I've never smoked, too. I'm only buying sometimes cigarettes in the Netherlands for colleagues, as they are a bit cheaper there.

I don't drink coffee either - but I'm always buying several kilogrammes for family and colleagues, too, when I'm in Holland. Coffee is much cheaper there. For own use I only fill up Diesel for the Omega or my wife's Astra G.
And I'm buying some food, which you cannot get here or for a higher price. For example the mackerel-patÚ, which in dsl's opinion is Scottish orign. /vehicle.php?id=337673

To be pedantic - I'd only claim Scottish tradition. Probably multi-origin - a logical thing to develop anywhere with supplies of mackerel and dairy products.

What is the reason why prices are more expensive? proximity with the Netherlands or something else?

Every country has it's own tax-regulations, also the EU-countries. It's becoming harmonized more and more, but there are still different rates.

It's not unusual, that it changes. For some years many Germans from the Eastern parts went to Poland for filling up fuel and going shopping for food and clothes. The Polish taxes were lifted up more and more, so today it's not attractive any more. Now the Polish people are coming to German supermarkets.

At Non-Euro-countries (around Germany it's Poland, Czech Republic, Denmark and Switzerland, also Britain and Sweden if you add the ferry-connections) it depends on the exchange-rates, too. So in the last years, for us the UK-prices were very high. When my wife and me travelled there, we've packed our car full with food and beverages -yes, we've broken Britsh laws, as we have smuggled fresh food to the island :whistle: .
Due the economy-crisis the British Pounds lost much value, compared to the Euro, so at our last trip this April we've seen, that the supermarket-prices were nearly the same as here, perhaps 10% more.
In May 2007 we'd been so pissed about the Scottish food-prices, that for our week in the Northern Highlands, we ate only marmalade-sandwiches, noodles with sauce and potatoes. No meat, no fruit and vegetables, no sweets. Beverages we've taken with us from home.

We never looked for alcohol there, as the German prices for alcoholic beverages are lower as in the neighbour-countries, except Luxemburg. About the Czech Republic I'm not sure. I think, it's cheaper there, too.

Generally Germany has indeed the lowest food-prices in Europe. We have too many supermarkets (the most selling-space per inhabitant in the world), so there are hard price-competions between the supermarket-companies.

In Holland only Diesel is cheaper, regular fuel is much more expensive. So the Germans are going for Diesel to NL, while the Dutch people are coming here for regular fuel.

Alcohol is cheap here, but very odd is one specific German tax. The "Schaumweinsteuer" for Champagner and all kind of sparkling wines. Not high, but it was never cancelled, even the origin reason for it stayed in Scotland :hello: for over 90 years! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scapa_Flow
Yes, this tax was founded in 1902 by the Emperor Wilhelm II for financing the Imperial German Naval Fleet. This fleet doesn't exist any more since the end of the First War, but this tax stayed alive during the decades. :/

in the case of Narcosur, Chileans usually travel to Mendoza shopping very often (though he was always very common that fuel load as well.) In Paraguay, for obvious reasons, there is usually less expensive things, because in the "triple border" there is usually enormous smuggling.
Calls the attention to the effect that tax still named.
