Can I use My bank card in Tunisia?

Major international hotels in Tunisia, especially in cities like Tunis, Sousse, and Djerba, accept international card payments, including VISA and Mastercard. It’s a convenient way to pay your bills.

However, Tunisia mainly operates on cash. Most local businesses prefer cash payments, so it’s wise to have Tunisian dinars for everyday spending.

If using your card in Tunisia, consider these points:

Currency conversion fees: UK banks might charge for international payments. Also, the exchange rate for converting TND to GBP might not be favourable.

Inform your bank: Let your bank know about your travel plans to avoid issues.

Should I use cash in Tunisia?

Tunisia is largely a cash-based economy. Many local vendors and smaller businesses only accept cash. Ensure you have enough Tunisian dinar for your trip.

Friendly tip: Smaller banknotes are helpful for tipping. Larger notes are better for shopping in local markets or paying for services.

Manor FX offers competitive rates for pounds to Tunisian dinar, ensuring you’re well-prepared.

Is it better to use cash or credit card in Tunisia?

Both have their uses. Cash is handy for small expenses, while cards are suitable for larger purchases in urban areas.

How can I avoid ATM fees in Tunisia?

To reduce ATM fees, use ATMs of reputable banks and withdraw larger amounts less often. Check if your bank has partnerships with Tunisian banks for reduced fees.

Why is the Tunisian dinar a closed currency?

The Tunisian dinar is a closed currency due to Tunisia’s strict foreign exchange regulations, aimed at maintaining economic stability and managing its balance of payments. 

These rules control the currency’s exchange to protect domestic investments, prevent capital flight, and ensure tourists exchange money locally, thereby boosting foreign currency reserves. 

This approach also shields the dinar from international market speculation, restricting its exchange mainly within Tunisia and limiting the amount that can be brought in or taken out of the country.

Always check current visa regulations before your trip.

For Tunisia, ensure routine vaccinations are up to date. Consider hepatitis A and typhoid vaccines, as they can be contracted through contaminated food or water. Consult a healthcare provider for advice.

The best time to visit Tunisia is from October to April. The weather is mild, ideal for sightseeing. However, it’s the peak season, so expect crowds and higher prices. Travelling in the shoulder seasons can avoid crowds and heat.
