Travel advice for Tunisia.

Most visits to Tunisia are trouble-free. The main types of incident for which British nationals required consular assistance in Tunisia in 2008 were for hospitalisations; deaths,  (mostly by natural causes); and replacing lost and stolen passports. You are advised to watch out for petty criminals such as pickpockets and bag snatchers, particularly in crowded market places. The UK government  recommend that you obtain comprehensive travel and medical insurance before travelling to Tunisia. There is no provision for free medical attention for non-Tunisians.  All doctors' fees, medication and hospitalisation in private (as opposed to state run) clinics have to be paid for on the spot. These costs can be very high.

Holiday Insurance Tunisia.

Each year almost 400,000 people travel from the UK to visit the beaches of Hammamet, Sousse, Port El Kantaoui, Skanes and Monastir. Or a visit to the capital Tunis or maybe Roman ruins at Carthage, Star Wars Hotel in Matmata or the Holy city of Kairouan. The good news though is that although Tunisia is not in Europe as it is North Africa a number of holiday travel insurers cover it under their European holiday insurance policies and more details are below.
