The Tunisian Currency is the Dinar and is what is called a closed currency, this means that you can't take money out of the country when you leave, the exchange rate is fixed so you will get the same rate of exchange wherever you are.

Could anyone please tell me how to find a cash machine in PEK? I normally go to Yasmine (which I love but just wanted a change) but this will be my first visit to PEK and I'd like to avoid traveller's cheques if I can ...
Hoping you can help
There are several ATM's located in the centre of PEKat the shops and I also seem to recall one just throught the arch to the marina.
If you are using the duty free shop at the airport everything is priced in Euros, you will also be able to exchange notes in to Dinar and also give coins as tips if required.
Where are you staying in PEK?
There is no need to tip everybody, usually the barman and if you want to have sun beds reserved tip the person who does them.
Tip them every day or two not every visit and usually somewhere about 1 - 4 dinar (less than 50p - £2) depending on the frequency you use them and the service they provide, for example if I was using the bar several times I would tip the barman 5 dinar every other day which is about £2.20.
Tip the bellboys a couple of dinar only when you use them. It is also worth tipping the waiter / waitress in the restaurant if you get good service, do this at the end of your stay.
Don't fall in to the trap of tipping everybody all the time as the cost would soon mount up.
