Compare car rent

If you know in advance which places you're going to visit, you can find out online if and where there are ATM's where you can use your MasterCard and Cirrus or Visa to withdraw money.

Climate and best time to travel

The best time to travel is in Spring and Fall. We visited in August, when temperatures reach the lower 50s (centigrade), especially in the inland. When we arrived in the beach resort Sousse, it was already around 40 degrees. Still, the heat is tolerable, because the air is dry.


Tunesia is a western, modern country. Especially in the cities, where women wear western clothes, without headscarves or veils and there are even female police officers.

Safety and security

Traveling in some countries or regions can be dangerous. That isn't always a reason not to go there, but part of preparing well for a trip includes finding out about possible risks.

The CIA World Factbook: Tunesia is a good place to look. Of course you always should consult your own country's Foreign Department web site.


Find current information on the web site of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: Tunesia. Always consult your family doctor and your country's Health Department web site.
