After Vape Tax Hits on October 1st 2026

Following the announcement from the 2024 Spring Budget, a vape levy will be set as of 1st October 2026, with the price of 10ml E-liquids to increase:

  • £1 for 10ml nicotine free E-liquids
  • £2 for 10ml E-liquids containing 0.1 – 10.9mg of nicotine
  • £3 for 10ml E-liquids containing 11mg+ of nicotine

New costs of liquid – based on a 10ml bottle containing 10mg Nic Salts which will retail for about £5 each – will see an average of 3 bottles per week priced at £15. Monthly cost will go up to around £65, and the annual price of £780.

Despite the increased cost of E-liquids once the vape levy comes into action, vaping will continue to help ex-smokers save up to £3,792 a year in comparison to purchasing cigarette products.

NHS Save With Less Hospital Admissions

In addition to saving yourself money, research from Brunel University London suggests that half of adult smokers in England making a switch to e-cigarettes could save the NHS more than £500 million per year, from a 13% reduction in hospital admissions.

This was calculated by analysing the data relating to smoking as a cause of death and the risk of developing multiple disease including cancer, chronic bronchitis, emphysema, heart disease and stroke.

One million smokers in the UK have the chance to receive free vape starter kits as part of the Government’s Swap to Stop scheme. As part of the initiative, pregnant women will also receive vape vouchers as a financial incentive to switch to vaping.

Saving is a Greater Incentive to Quit than Health

Smoking can have a greater impact on disadvantaged groups, such as individuals who are homeless or live in temporary accommodation, leading to health issues and financial challenges. It’s crucial to address these inequalities and provide support to help improve their well-being.

In 2021, a cross-sectional survey was conducted on 68 male smokers living in a temporary accommodation hostel in Brisbane, Australia. It focused on smoking and the participants perceptions of cessation aids. Despite improved health being the most common response of benefits from smoking cessation, more participants were interested in a campaign promoting the financial savings of quitting and e-cigarettes as a cessation aid, with the high cost of smoking provoking greater thoughts and motivation to quit than the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) requirement for graphic health warning labels on all tobacco products.

Property Value & Poverty

Another expense of smoking most people forget about, is property value. In 2013, Pfizer Canada conducted a study in which they surveyed a group of real estate agents from Ontario, Canada. The results suggested that prolonged smoking in the home can reduce property value by up to 29%.

57% of respondents said most buyers are less likely to purchase a home where people have smoked, and 27% said most buyers are actually unwilling to buy a home where people have smoked.

If the buyer isn’t completely turned off, they will most likely to be after a reduction in the price so that they can factor in the cost of rectifying the smoke damage – this includes replacing carpets, curtains and getting professional cleaners in. Damages included are: yellow or brown stains on surfaces and walls; scorch marks; third-hand smoke and; stale smoke odours on carpets and curtains.

The study estimated potential losses at more than $100,000, based on average home prices in Ontario at the time. So, if your house is worth £250,000, you risk losing a grand amount of £72,500.

In 2019, Action on Smoking and Health (ASH) reported that over half a million (512,000) social housing tenants are living in poverty due to the impact of smoking costs on their disposable income. They noted that in supporting tenants to quit smoking, landlords can benefit from more stable tenancies due to tenants’ improved health.’

“Stopping smoking reduces the chance of tenants becoming ill with conditions like Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), heart disease or lung cancer – all of which will likely have a dramatic negative impact on the tenant’s income and life expectancy.”

Director of Policy at ASH, Ciaran Osbourne said: “Stopping smoking has enormous health benefits but also dramatically improves tenants’ and landlords’ finances. Most social housing tenants want to quit smoking and doing so can help them climb out of rent arrears and debt. If social landlords take a more proactive approach to supporting their tenants to quit, everyone benefits except the tobacco industry.”
