Information About Tunis-Carthage International Airport (TUN) Taxis

Whether you are arriving at Tunis Airport for work, vacation or any other reason, you will need to rely on transportation to get from the terminal to destinations across Tunisia – including the capital city of Tunis which is 8 kilometers (or just under 5 miles) from the airport.

One of the best ways to make this journey is by taking a taxi, because you will have the luxury of the only people in the car being yourself, the driver and any people you’re traveling with. You will also be able to relax by knowing your bags are safely locked in the trunk of the vehicle.

Once your flight has landed, you’ll have to first clear passport, security and customs checks and collect your suitcases, but then you can proceed outside to where you will find taxis waiting for you by the arrivals area. Tunis Airport is relatively small so you shouldn’t struggle to locate the taxis, but if you are having any problems you can simply ask for help from an airport staffer.
Because Tunis is not that far away from the airport, the journey should only take between 15 and 20 minutes, although this can vary throughout the day. At quiet times like early in the morning the ride may take less time, and it could be longer during busy periods like rush hour.

Taxis that pick up at the airport use meters, which mean the fare for your ride will be based on distance traveled, with longer journeys costing more money. As an example, a typical taxi fare from the airport to Tunis should cost about 35 Tunisian dinar (or about €11) during the daytime, with the fare rising to 45 Tunisian dinar (or about €14.50) if you’re taking at taxi at night.

Tips about Tunis Airport taxis

One important reminder is that taxi drivers that pick up at the airport are willing to negotiate their fares sometimes, so you might be able to haggle and get a good fare if you use this tactic.

You should also be prepared for your taxi driver to charge you between 5 and 10 Tunisian dinar for all of your suitcases, and this fee will be on top of whatever the journey itself costs.

It can be a good idea to get plenty of Tunisian dinar in cash from an ATM at the airport or even before you start your flight to Tunisia, because the vast majority of taxi drivers will primarily take payment in cash, and you might struggle to find one that can accept your credit card.

When it comes to tipping, taxi drivers who pick up passengers at Tunis Airport do not generally assume that they will get this bonus from you. However, you are allowed to give them a few extra Tunisian diner in the event that the ride you received was fast, comfortable and safe. But don’t tip if you believe that you were given a slow, overpriced or otherwise bad journey.
