Should I Travel To Tunisia?

***Updated 09/07/15***

The FCO has advised against all but essential travel. We advise that you o not book a holiday to Tunisia until the advise has changed.

***End of update***


This is a difficult one to answer, especially if you’re like me and can’t stand bullying in any shape or form. That is what happened in Tunisia at the end of June this year and as my father taught me as a child, never give in to bullies, then I would defiantly go.


If you stop and think about it from a budget tourist point of view, then you would be silly not to go. Prices have dropped, beaches will have more room on them and you’ll probably even be able to get a sun bed around the pool. The vast majority of Tunisian people are very friendly and helpful and many brave locals placed themselves between the terrorist and the holiday makers, risking their own lives as they know that without the tourist there country would suffer more. No tourist, no work. No job, no money. I’m not saying that these brave people were thinking about jobs and money when they put their lives at risk and I salute them all.


I should also like to thank Thomas Cook who helped many of our clients change their holiday destination without penalty. It’s nice to see them get something right at long last. Shame on Thomson’s who only jumped on the band wagon after seeing what TC were offering. Shame also to other airlines who put up flight cost across the board as they knew 1,000’s of people who were booked to go to Tunisia this summer would be looking at alternative destinations.


The FCO still say that it’s safe to go on holiday to Tunisia and the latest update can be seen at https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/tunisia. I just want to add that the news I get back from the tour reps on the ground is that there are more guards around since this terrible incident and they always say that the safest time to visit a country is after an attack.


My condolences go out to all the victims and their families and I hope that they have many happy memories of the good times they shared, as I also know only too well that this does help the grieving process.


Don’t let the bullies win. Visit Tunisia soon. Check out how cheap it is on our Tunisia page.
