Top tips for hiring a car in Tunisia

  • For those looking for car hire in Tunisia, it's important to note that the legal blood alcohol limit is 0.5 grams per litre. It is strictly enforced, and exceeding this limit can result in fines, licence suspension, or even imprisonment. It is always advised to have a designated driver, or to avoid consuming alcohol before driving to ensure safety and compliance with local laws.
  • The busiest season for car hire in Tunisia is typically during the summer months, from June to August. This period corresponds to the peak tourist season when visitors flock to popular destinations like Tunis, Sousse, and Hammamet. It is advisable to book the car rental in advance during this time to ensure availability and secure the best rates. Planning ahead will help facilitate a smooth and convenient car hire experience in Tunisia.
  • Choosing car hire in Tunisia offers several advantages over public transport. It provides flexibility to explore various attractions at your own pace and convenience. With a rental car, you have the freedom to go off the beaten path and discover hidden gems. It also saves time, as you are not restricted by fixed schedules or waiting for public transport. Car hire offers privacy, comfort, and the ability to carry luggage conveniently, making it a preferable choice for many travellers in Tunisia.
  • In Tunisia, it isn't mandatory to possess a credit card to rent a car. Many car rental companies accept both credit and debit cards for payment. However, it is recommended to check with the specific rental agency regarding their payment options before making a reservation. Some rental companies may require a credit card as a security deposit, while others may accept a cash deposit or other forms of payment.
  • Book your rental car in Tunisia at least 5 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini rental cars in Tunisia are around 30% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • What is driving like in Tunisia?

    Driving in Tunisia can be a mixed experience. The road conditions vary, with major highways being well-maintained, but rural and less-travelled roads may be in poor condition. Locals primarily drive small to mid-sized cars, with popular brands being Renault, Peugeot, and Mercedes-Benz. Tunisians drive on the right side of the road, similar to most of mainland Europe. However, traffic can be chaotic in cities, with aggressive driving, limited adherence to traffic rules, and occasional lack of lane discipline. It is important to exercise caution, follow local driving customs, and be aware of other drivers' behaviour.

  • How old do you have to be to rent a car in Tunisia?

    To rent a car in Tunisia, you must typically be at least 21 years old. However, the age requirement can vary depending on the rental company and the type of car you wish to rent. Some agencies may require drivers to be at least 23 years old. Additionally, drivers usually need to possess a valid driving licence that has been held for a specified period, often one or two years, depending on the rental company's policy. It is advisable to check with the specific rental agency for their age restrictions and requirements.

  • How are petrol prices in Tunisia?

    Petrol prices in Tunisia are generally cheaper compared to the UK. As of the latest available data, the price of octane-95 petrol in Tunisia is 2.525 TND (60 GBP) per litre. In contrast, the average price of petrol in the UK is significantly higher. This price difference can be attributed to various factors including taxes, production costs, and global market dynamics. Lower petrol prices in Tunisia can be advantageous for travellers in terms of lower fuel expenses while exploring the country.

  • What are the speed limits in Tunisia?

    In Tunisia, the speed limits are generally measured in kilometres per hour (km/h). On urban roads and residential areas, the speed limit is typically 50 km/h (31 mph). On rural roads, the limit is usually 90 km/h (56 mph). For dual carriageways and expressways, the speed limit is 110 km/h (68 mph), and on highways, the speed limit is generally 120 km/h (75 mph). However, it is essential to adhere to any posted signs and adjust the speed accordingly based on the road conditions and traffic.
