Exchange rate is 2.87 dinars to the £ as of today.

In resort they are getting around 2.84.

£5 = 14 dinar (give or take a few millimes)

1000 milimes to 1 Dinar

I copied this information (and edited it, as some info is out of date )

Its good general advice for all

Particularly first timers to the Country.

You cannot export Tunisian currency, and for that reason your bank cannot order any for you to take with you.

Most tourists arrive with no currency - it's easy enough to obtain it.

The exchange rate is fixed by the Government, and you will be offered that rate at the airport and at your hotel.

You may find it better to exchange some currency at these locations, rather than use ATMs,

1 Tunisian Dinar (TD) is divided into a thousand, so 15 dinars will be written 15,000.

As at August 8th 2014 I dinar = 35p £1 = 2.88 dinar

Note that it is illegal to take ANY Tunisian currency out of the country.

You must change back ALL currency, including coins, when you leave.

You can still make purchases at the airside shops and cafes, since they take a range of non-Tunisian currencies, notably Euro, GBP and USD.

The Tunisian authorities have the right to search your baggage and spot-searches are common.

They really do mean it - NO currency is to be exported.

If you do get searched and have some dinar. Insist its for the café (air side)

If you have a substantial amount and it is found on you.

You will lose it !

If using your bank card.......

You should contact your bank branch and let them know where you're going to and for how long, otherwise you could have your card blocked due to irregular spending patterns.

However, a lot of banks just ignore this, so make sure you've got your bank's telephone number written down - you may need it.

Enjoy Tunisia and spending your hard earned !;-)
