Car Hire and renting a car in Tunisia
Driving in Tunisia can be very different to driving in Europe as the locals can be quite erratic. There are three motorways in Tunisia linking Tunis to Bizerte in the north, to Sousse on the coast and west to Beja. The standard of the roads are pretty good with some pot holes appearing after the heavy rains. Care should be taken whilst driving outside of the towns as pedestrians can stray on to the road and have right of way. Lane discipline in the towns is not often followed and drivers often do not stop at pedestrian crossings. Email for our latest car hire prices.
