Make the Switch and Save Money Today
The cost of living is increasing and many of us are feeling it. Quitting smoking is one of the best things you can do to improve your health. It’s not just your body that will feel the benefits of switching to vaping though. Your bank balance could soon look healthier too. It can be hard to work out just how much you spend on smoking, or how much you could save by switching to vaping. We’ve made it simple with our Quit Smoking Calculator. So you can see exactly how much money you’d save compared to smoking. Do you need some help staying motivated, or to take the first step in quitting smoking? Why not take a look at just how much money you could save by doing so?
See how much you could save with the Quit Smoking Calculator
Every smoker knows that smoking is an expensive habit. The average 20 a day smoker will shell out a whopping £4,588 a year on smoking, and the cost is set to increase even further. In his recent review on the governments ambition to go smoke-free by 2030, Javed Khan proposed significantly increasing the cost of tobacco products by up to 30%. That could see your average price of a pack-of-20 go up to over £15. Remember when you said you’d quit when cigarettes cost more than a tenner? Compared to this, a vaper only pays an average of £657 per year. That’s a potential saving of £327 every month in your pocket.
Even if you’re only an occasional smoker, you might be shocked to see how the cost soon adds up. Switching from your 5-a-day habit to vaping could save you nearly £1000 a year. That’s certainly not an insignificant amount of money for most of us.

Using disposables to make the switch
Our Quit Smoking Calculator uses figures based on switching to a refillable vape and an e-liquid strength to match your smoking habits. However, we know that for many new vapers, simplicity is key. Struggling to set-up or use a complicated e-cig can be the first hurdle in falling off the wagon and going back to cigarettes.
We have a number of beginner friendly starter kits that we have hand chosen as being easy to use and maintain for new vapers. These require minimal set-up and maintenance, to get you started smoothly on your vaping journey. If complete simplicity is what you’re really after though, then a disposable vape might be your first starting point.
Disposable vapes don’t require filling or charging, they come ready to vape and you simply dispose of them once they expire. It’s the simplest way to vape and even though they can be expensive when compared to a refillable vape, they can still work out a lot cheaper than smoking. Many new vapers start on a disposable device, and then move on to a refillable system once they feel more confident.
Moving on from disposables
Our VLTZ Range is specifically designed to give you options for transitioning from a disposable vape to a more cost effective system. The VLTZ Flex is a pre-filled pod system with a rechargeable battery. You simply replace the pods when they run out of e-liquid and charge the battery as needed. The Flex is a great alternative for disposable users looking to save money, with 2 pods costing around the same as a single disposable vape and lasting twice as long.
For those looking for an even more economical solution, the VLTZ Re:fuel offers a refillable, rechargeable disposable. The Re:fuel can be used with VLTZ e-liquid for the same intense flavour experience as disposables. Easily refill the device with up to 20ml of e-liquid until the atomiser expires (you’ll notice a deterioration in flavour), then dispose of the device. Lasting up to as long as 10 disposables, the Re:fuel could save you £30 compared to using the equivalent in disposables.
Already a vaper?
Already a vaper and looking for ways to save money? You might want to check out our recent article for tips on budget-friendly vaping. There are many ways to cut the cost of vaping. These include using a lower-powered vape, switching from disposables to a refillable system, or buying your e-liquid in bulk to make the most of multi-buy offers. With our tiered pricing, you could save up to £1 a bottle from buying 3 or more at a time. You might also opt for an e-liquid subscription. Buying your e-liquid on subscription gives you the best possible saving. It also has the added perk of meaning you never risk running out! You can change or pause your subscription at any time, giving you complete flexibility over what you get each month.
So, there you have it. All the tools to show you how making the switch can save you money. If you know someone who would benefit from making the switch, why not send them our Quit Smoking Calculator? While we’re on the subject of saving money… If you know someone who needs to make that first step to making the switch, why not use our Refer a Friend scheme?
