Tunisia as a holiday destination

Although very small in relation to many of its African counterparts, Tunisia has enough natural beauty and history to rival much larger countries. Within the capital, Tunis, lies the Bardo Museum, boasting archaeological exhibits ranging from Roman mosaics to Islamic art. Tunis marks the site of ancient Carthage, and its rich history can be discovered at the Carthage National Museum. When booking travel insurance for Tunisia it's important to get the most suitable cover for you, enabling you to enjoy the beauty and layered history of the country.

Is Tunisia safe?

Though a predominantly safe country that attracts millions of visitors every year, it's always recommended to check up on the Tunisia travel advice government website for more up-to-date information on travelling to Tunisia.

You can contact the emergency services by calling 197 (police — when in cities and towns), 193 (national guard — when in rural areas or small villages), 190 (ambulance) or 198 (civil protection — for assistance at incidents, such as car accidents, to provide medical assistance and response to fire).

Tunisia

Currency

Tunisia trades in the Tunisian dinar and is what is called a 'closed currency'. However, it is illegal to import or export the dinar, so even if you find somewhere in the UK that sells the dinar, you'll have to change your money at the airport when you arrive. Make sure you not change too much, as you can only re-exchange 30% of the amount, and be sure to keep your receipts.

Etiquette

Tunisia is a predominantly Muslim country and while it is a favourite for western tourists from all over the world, it is advisable for western women to dress modestly and be respectful of religious and cultural customs when you're out and about.

Medical

We would always advise that before embarking on your holiday that you consult with your GP 6-8 weeks before travelling. Both Hepatitis A and Typhoid vaccinations are usually recommended, and any required vaccinations are necessary to benefit from our medical insurance. While Tunisia falls under the parameters of our European travel insurance policy with us at Holiday Extras, we must stress that Tunisia is not in Europe and therefore your EHIC (European Health Insurance Card) is not valid here.

Top things to do in Tunisia
