Useful apps to have while traveling in Tunisia

Essential apps

Bolt

  • This is like a cheaper version of Uber in Tunisia though these are cabs and not private cars. However, bolt still offers better service compared to regular taxis on the streets.
  • One thing to note is that when using Bolt in Tunisia you cannot pay using your in-app payment wallet. Set cash as your payment and always some cash at hand before hailing the cab.
  • Currently, Bolt is only available in Tunis.
  • Alternatively, you can go for OTO, works the same as Uber and it's more expensive compared to Bolt.

Google Maps

  • Google maps will give you the most accurate routes and medina maps in every Tunisian city.

Nice to Have

Airbnb

  • Airbnb is honestly the best way to find accommodation in Tunisia. Most people like finding accommodation around the medinas. Many of these Medina houses can be booked through Airbnb.

Jumia

  • Jumia is the most reliable shopping and home delivery app in Africa. I've used it in several African countries, also works perfectly in Tunisia.

Telecommunication apps - Tunisie telecom, Ooredoo, Orange

  • All 3 Tunisian telco providers have apps that you can use to easily top up your dim card.

Duolingo

  • Most Tunisians speak either French or Arabic or both. If you'll be traveling outside Tunis, you'll may some help with language translation. English speakers are fewer in other Tunisian towns.

World Remit.

  • It's the safest app to use for the transfer of money in Tunisia and the fact that it's available in many countries makes it convenient for many tourists.
