Just wondered whether we will find it easy enough as first timers in Tunisia to get a taxi to the hotel from the airport? We are staying at the Salem hotel in Sousse and travelling on 27th Feb.
On seeing that it was only approx 2KM from the airport we thought we would brave it for the £40 transfer fee and make our own way there!!
Any tips welcomed! Oh and thoughts about the hotel
We land about 7pm so all being well we should be in the cab before the price rises at 9pm.
We went to Tunisia last month, and after reading the posts on this site, decided to go with our own airport transfers - I am so glad we did.
At the airport there are loads of taxis, we arrived after 1am, and there must have been about 20 or 30 at the rank. We agreed a price on that occasion (we were going to Sousse). I think we had arrived got settled in and possibly were asleep before the tour coach with others from our flight had arrived!
On the way home there was a taxi rank at the top of the road, and we had reception phone up and call a taxi down. As this was an evening journey we just checked that he had his meter at 0.35, and away we went, this trip was particularly cheap.
When you are out in the resort, every second vehicle seems to be a yellow taxi, so no problems there.
Our taxis including tips cost us under 50TND (there and back), which is about £22. The tour operator wanted £60 for coach transfers for this!
Have a lovely time whenever you are going.
I am sure I read somewhere on this site that some taxis do accept english money, but I think it's as well to get some changed while you can, as we had to buy some water at the hotel as soon as we arrived (it was so hot).
Shall I wait untill I arrive at Monastair and take a standard taxi outside or shall i prebook online before I arrive?? The price to prebook is roughly around £50 each for me and my girlfriend so was just wondering if there is any cheaper ways? Any experiences or tips would be useful!
Thanks for your help!
P.S. Sorry if I come across as naive, it is our first time abroad.
Is there a big queue?
Is there enough time between landing and getting on the transfer coach.
Should I just wait untill I get to the hotel to change my money.
Thanks for your help.
