Changing money

The monetary unit of Tunisia is the Tunisian Dinar (TND), which is divided into 1000 millimes. 50, 20, 10 and 5 dinars notes and 5, and 1 dinar coins as well as 500, 100, 50, 20, 10 and 5, millimes coins are in circulation. A one Tunisian Dinar (TND) is approximately 0.316 Euro or 0.350 USD.

All hard currencies or traveler's cheques can be converted into Tunisian dinars in banks, money changers and hotels during the day. There are ATM machines almost everywhere, where withdrawals can be made using Visa or MasterCard. Credit cards (American Express, Dinners Club, MasterCard or Visa) are accepted by all tourist establishments as well as many shops and restaurants.

The TND is not convertible abroad so make sure to change only what you need. You can re-exchange, when leaving Tunisia (at the airport), the dinars that you would not have spent, upon presentation of the exchange receipts, so, keep them for that event.
