Travel information

Getting to Tunisia

It’s easy – just a 2 ½ hour daily direct flight from London to Tunis with the national carrier Tunisair. There are also numerous flights from continental Europe to Tunis each day, from well-known carriers like Air France, Lufthansa, Alitalia, and  Eurowings. All these airlines serve the Tunis-Carthage International Airport, which is situated just a few minutes from the centre of the city.

Particularly in the Summer months, a range of scheduled and chartered flights from the UK and Europe operate to smaller airports throughout the country, including Enfidha (for Sousse), Sfax, Monastir, Djerba, and Tozeur.

Travel within Tunisia

Tunisia is an easy to get around by road, rail, and air. An extensive network of roads connect all major towns and cities: the A1 motorway is the key north-south route between the country’s largest cities: reaching Sousse from Tunis in 2 hours, then Sfax in a further 1 ½ hours. You can rent your own car, including with a driver if you prefer, and fuel is relatively cheap in comparison to Europe. Within cities, taxis are plentiful and the country has its own ride-hailing app, Bolt.

Tunis-Gabes is the main north-south rail line which runs via Sousse and Sfax. A branch line goes to Hammamet and Nabuel. Normally arriving or departing from Tunis, domestic flights serve destinations across the country, and are available daily.
