Tunisia has been welcomed back into the UK airlines and tour operators flight programmes after the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) lifted the travel ban that was put in place in July 2015 to the tourist resorts in the later part of 2017. Thomas Cook Holidays quickly re-launched a holiday program that began from selected airports in February 2018 and then from other regional airports from May 2018 for the summer holiday season. TUI Travel has also announced that Tunisia holidays will be available from selected UK airports in a small programme operating for Summer 2018.
So is Tunisia safe? That’s the question that many UK holiday makers have been asking. Well in 2017 over 600,000 tourists from other European countries enjoyed a trouble free holiday to Tunisia, enjoying the white sand beaches, good quality hotels and of course the hot Tunisian sunshine during the summer months. The Tunisian police and security services have undergone re-training and the security is of a much higher standard and far superior to what it was pre 2015.
Tourists are now returning to Tunisia and are attracted by the beaches, friendly locals and exceptional value for money this beautiful country offers. The hotels have been keen to attract guests back and many have undergone transformations with further security added as well as refurbishments to rooms and public areas too. Many of the hotels that were previously featured have been dropped and only good quality and well maintained hotels are featured.
