"Tunis-Taxi from airport to town" Tunis Transportation Tip by Kevin-UK

Tunis Transportation: 21 reviews and 11 photos

I've been caught several times on this one, but no more.
A taxi from the airport to the centre of Tunis should cost under 4TD.
When I arrived in Tunis asked "How much to the Gare de Tunis" I was told 20 TD, we eventually agreed on 15TD. On the way home we stoppped a taxi near to the station and asked how much to the airport and was told that it was metered, that was ok. The meter started at 400 mill (0.4TD) within minutes it was at 2500 (2.5TD) which surprised me, but the driver had appeared to have pushed a button, from then on I watched the meter like a hawk.
When we arrived at the airport the fare on the meter was 5.25TD, then he said that he would add 2TD for the two bags. Now he was trying his luck, that is where the unexplained sudden increase had come from, from 500mill to 2500. So, be warned, if you are getting a taxi from the airport to Tunis centre only expect to pay around 5TD for two people and 2 bags. Ask the driver to put the meter on and invite him to add the baggage charge then you'll be in no doubt.
