    Zet - where is the Phebus hotel located, which city? You can change money at the airport on arrival but you can also exchange at hotels/banks/bureaux des postes. We speak Arabic and French but in the very touristique areas they do speak English. Learn just a few words of either French or Arabic to greet and you will be met with smiles.

    I hope you enjoy your vacation here

    Hi Zet,

    You do not need any vaccinations to enter Tunisia.

    I don't know if you can pay at the hotel, you should check this with the booking site. Usually they ask for a credit card or other deposit but maybe the best is to check.

    I don't see any amount above but at the moment the ZAR1 will get you approx TD0.178. Our currency is divided into millimes and 1000 millimes is TD1.000
