Con artistsAlthough I prefer Sixt but this time I reserved a Europcar with confirmation number 1091412074 in Tunis intl Airport To my surprise and dismay your agent said Europcar In Tunisia do not accept Amex as a policy. I tried talking to a manager and she said the same thing. I had to cancel my meeting appointment for that night and look for another car to rent by another agency and pay prime price for last minute reservation, so I found Sixt as a life saver. I will file a complaint with Amex also. I find this experience very disturbing and inconvenient and I think your agent didn’t want Amex to save some banking fees. Also note that i will rate Europcar on all websites and alert travelers about this location poor customer service. Thank you and never again.Lying to my face. And screwing up my business appointments

I cannot believe this was BudgetAgent did not have the reservation. Was finally able to find me a car. When I objected that it had no air conditioning, agent decided to give me a "good" car. It had A/C which worked. Car was extremely dirty, full of digs and dents, no hub caps, and tank was almost empty. I was repeatedly told that the parking fee was paid and that I did not have to pay anything on the way out, guess what. The parking fee was not paid with lots of angry drivers behind trying to get out. Poor car, extremely poor service. I cannot believe this was Budget!Agent did not have the reservation.

A weird experienceOnce we found the agent, she was nice, but it took a while to find her - Budget just doesn't have a counter at the airport!Other than having to talk my way in a strange airport in order to find the Budget rep (no counter) in a café, the car was... a bit beat... the manual gear was particularly hard and couldn't get in first in crazy traffic.

No physical location or representative for Budget at Tunis AirportI'm unable to provide any feedback regarding what I liked since there was no physical location or agent at pick up time for Budget. At 8:25 pm, the agent called me from +216 22 342 670 to inform me that she was home and that she was not aware of any reservation.Budget has no physical location, the phone number listed is for an agent who was home at the time of pickup which was at 7 pm. At 8:25 pm, the agent called me from +216 22 342 670 to inform me that she was home and that wasn't aware of any reservation. Being we had previously cancelled the trip the week before and were just hours away from going on the trip, we decided to go with another car rental company, Rania Rental car and this turned out to be a very difficult experience for my family and I. We paid for a newer car, with 7 seats and A/C, but were given a 7 seater, with 300 000 Km, after signing the contract and paying $612 deposit, and $120 for a 1 day rental. The rate was increased by double as the agent realized I desperately needed a car. The car had clear signs of having been in an accident and the A/C did not work. We discovered much of this the next day during the trip. As we were forced to keep the windows down during the trip, I became sick by the time we returned home and my family was in great discomfort as well including my father who had heart surgery a month ago. I needed to visit the emergency room and had signs of a running nose, itchy and watery eyes, a sore throat, sneezing and coughing. The doctor confirmed this was due to the long exposure to particles since the windows were down during the drive. Upon informing the agents of Rania of our experience, we were told it wasn't their problem and that I had agreed to the lease. Unable to resolve the issue with Rania Car rental, I was told by the Police to come back the next day Sunday, May 14 to file a complaint. After more than 2 hours, I was finally able to file a complaint with the Judiciary Police at Tunis Airport (Intervention # 230 of May 14, 2017) as well as a complaint with the Tourism info desk at the airport for the minister of Tourism. I have additional information regarding the case.

Car hire excess insurance in Tunis

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Tunis car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Tunis.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Tunis car rental.

Top tips for hiring a car in Tunis

  • There’s no better way to explore this sprawling Tunisian capital than with a car. By arranging a car hire in Tunis, you have the freedom to do things on your own terms. Discover the centuries-old Medina and experience the souks for a sensory extravaganza. The Bardo Museum houses a world-renowned collection of ancient mosaics, or you can drive out to La Goulette, a port suburb offering ocean views and golden beaches away from the hustle and bustle of the centre. Around 10 miles outside of Tunis lies the ruins of the ancient city of Carthage. Today, it’s a world-famous archaeological wonder and UNESCO world heritage site that’s unmissable when travelling to Tunis.
  • The Tunis-Carthage International Airport is a short 5-mile drive from the Medina of Tunis. In the arrival hall of the airport, you’ll find a wide selection of top car hire firms. The likes of Hertz, Avis, Sixt and Budget will set you up with your Tunis car hire in no time. Exit the airport and take the A1 motorway directly into the city centre. The journey time is approximately 15min, taking into account the usual traffic.
  • Driving in Tunis can be rather chaotic, although an experience that’s for sure. Rules of the road are generally not followed in the same way they are in the UK. You will have to pay extra attention to cars and scooters passing from either side as well as pedestrians crossing the road and dodging through traffic without warning. Motorways are well-maintained, although you will have to pay a toll (around £1-£2) on the A1 between Tunis and Sousse. Driving is on the right side of the road and signs are often in both Arabic and French, so it’s advisable to arrange a sat nav with your car hire in Tunis regardless.
  • Rush hour tends to be between the hours of 08:00-09:00 and 16:00-18:00, yet traffic in Tunis can be hectic all hours of the day and night. Roads such as the A1 heading in and out of Tunis are usually pretty clear and make for more pleasant driving between cities. Bear in mind that it is extremely hot in Tunis and keeping water in your car at all times is essential.
  • Book your car hire in Tunis at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hires in Tunis are around 32% cheaper than other car types, on average
