You should check Foreign Office travel advice and restrictions before visiting as some regions are advised against visiting. However, car hire is well appointed and major brands are present in Tunisia offering new or nearly new cars with low mileage to ensure reliability.
The North African country of Tunisia lies opposite Italy on the other side of the Mediterranean Sea. This fantastic location, which is guaranteed good weather during the summer, makes Tunisia a popular tourist destination. Visitors also like the fact that they can find cheap flights to Tunisia while costs in the country itself are relatively low for holiday makers.
To arrive in Tunisia, you need not obtain a visa if you are coming from Europe, America, Canada, or neighbouring countries such as Algeria. The country’s capital is Tunis, and this is where the main airport Tunis-Carthage International Airport
is situated. However, there are a number of other airports dotted around the country including Habib Bourguiba Skanes-Monastir
which is Tunisia’s second biggest.
