Tunisia: Touring - Driving holiday

With a largely modern and good road system throughout the country, a driving holiday in Tunisia can offer a rewarding range of sights and environments from modern North African towns and cities to world-class sites of ancient history and antiquities, surprisingly lush fertile regions to the widescreen wonder of the Sahara, glorious coast and beaches to villages with ancient cave houses.

Most major car-hire operators offer car hire in Tunisia but thoroughly check the condition and driving safety of any vehicle before accepting it as local standards of maintenance are not always as thorough as in the Eurozone. Driving can be slow on smaller local roads, as it's not uncommon to find yourself stuck behind a wobbling truck or van piled alarmingly high with goods and sometimes even people. It is possible to take your own vehicle for a touring holiday in Tunisia with car ferry links from France and Italy.
