Best Rated Transportation in Hammamet

  • Tunis to Hammamet

    by canetedrop Written Mar 20, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are many ways going to Hammamet from Tunis. The best ways is to rent a car (80 Euros per day). If youýre on a budget, the bus is a better way for travel. Going to Hammamet from Tunis I took the train. Which was 6 dinars and took me about 1 and half hour. From Hammamet to Tunis I took a local bus for 3 dinars and the travel time was 40 minutes. Just ask your hotel for the local bus information. They have mini bus going to all near by cities from Hammamet. The problem is that the bus would not leave until its full. Itýs normally an 8-seat bus.
    Traveling in Hammamet
    Cabs are cheap and is a better way getting around the city.

    To travel around hammamet and to reach other cities you can travel by buses. This is in fact (most of the time) cars with 6 sitting places and it kind of work like a taxi and it leave the taxi station just when it all the place have been rented. So if you're lucky you can leave immediately but sometimes you'll have to wait at least 20 mn. So no surprise there is no schedule.
    This type of transportation is really cheap and it is less expensive than the excursion that hotels propose and you'll have more fun.
    Tip : if you travel during the summer season, be aware that there is no A/C in these old cars.

  • Take a Taxi

    Most of the times, hotels are built around hammamet so you'll need to take a taxi to get to the city center. There is no public transportation so this is the most convenient way to go anywhere yu want.
    Prices are not that bad so you'll be able to take a cab as many times as you want.
    Just be sure that you take a yellow cab, and that the counter is on. If you have any problems with the drivers you can just tell him that you'll call the police and he'll give you the right price

    The best way to get around anywhere in Tunisia is to hire one of the numerous yellow taxis that are freely available and above all CHEAP!! agree a price before you get in though.

    The average taxi ride costs about 4 dinars for about 3 miles!

    Bus fare's-so cheap!

    Bus

    If you are on a low budget, try to take the busses as much as possible. You can save a lot. Bus stands are sometimes not visible as one, just watch a crowd of people in the street, probably there is one.

    Some fares:

    Hammamet-Yasmin to Hammamet Medina: 0,4 Dinar (24 Eurocent). With a taxi you pay 7-8 Dinars, and they are not so much quicker.

    Hammamet-Yasmin to Nabeul: not totally sure, but about 1,2 Dinar.

    Driving was not a problem. Other drivers are mostly polite and they use their hand signs in the city trafic as thanks and sorry. Well, maybe I used to such maners from my home town so i have got no problem. Most of the trafik signs or street names are in both in arabic and latin letters so it has no problem to read it. Another interesting thing was trafic police, they are very nice and polite. There are a lot of trafic control points but no one stoped us. Maybe they figure out that we are tourist from the plate numbers. The base was blue, all other cars had black plates.
    Car: Renault Clio
    Cost: 50 Euro (80 dinars) a day full coverage ( I was in rush could get better deal like 60 dinars)
    Gas: Quite cheap 40 dinars full tank (30 USD)
    One motorway Tunis to south 1.20 dinars Tunis - Hammamet 0.80 dinars Kairouan to Hammamet

    Mini Train

    If you choose to stay in hammamet you will probably stay in a Hotel around Hammamet and in order to reach to the city center there are two alternatives..

    There is a mini train running from South of Hammamet to the city center.. Travel distance is around 12 km. The cost is 2,5 Dinars per person.. Trains or Train shaped cars are using the same route with normal cars and if you are more than 2-3 people they can be expensive cause taxis are cheap..

    The best way to move around is by taxi.It's very cheap, fast, reliable and convenient.Drivers are everywhere,it's easy to take a cab in the street. It's much better than going by bus, it seems they do not consider time that much :-)

  • From Hammamet to Sidi Bou Said

    by hislirem Written Jul 25, 2010

    You may take a taxi (around 140-160 Dinars -85 Euros for two ways) from Hammamet to Sidi Bou Said.

    Or you may use the bus. We did so..

    There is a bus to Tunis from Hammamet every hour. (or you may go to Naboul by Taxi - around 10 Dinars / 5,5 Euros. And there is a bus from Naboul to Tunis every half an hour).
    Once you reach Tunis Bus Station write down the name of the bus station (for your trip back to station - our driver took us to train station back). :)

    Then you should take a taxi to Sidi Bou Said. You have to agree on the price with taxi driver. We agreed on 15 Dinars to Sidi Bou Said, and 12 Dinars from SBS to Tunis.
    There is also a train option, but I don't know much about it...

    Enfidha airport

    by Benson35 Written May 29, 2013

    This airport seems quite small. You walk in, you have check-in desks infront of you and a few shops. These shops take Tunisian Dinar, but the duty free through security does not.

    You must change your left over Tunisian Dinar here before checking in. There are exchange booths to the right at the end of the check-in desks.

    Once through security (which isn't very strict), there are a few places to eat and get a drink (these are expensive), a souvenir shop, toilets and an area to smoke if you so desire.

    There are not many seats at the gates. When I was flying home, there were 4 planes-worth of passengers held in a small area. There were two flights to Manchester and two flights to Cardiff that were all boarding within 5 minutes of each other - very confusing!!

    The Little Touristic Train

    One of the funniest & most typically touristic ways to get around. Will still take you to most places of interest, though...

    More to come!

    Taxis are everywhere and not too expensive, it's recommended to agree a price before setting off but we never did and never seemed to be ripped off!
