Despite the adverse FCO travel advice, I decided to return to my favourite Tunisian hotel for the 18th time. Very easy to book direct flights from London to Tunis with Tunis Air. Booked the hotel directly too and they organised private transfer too.

A 4 star all inclusive hotel (all inclusive available 24 hours a day). The wonderful staff really make this place so good. Various bars and eating places dotted around the extensive grounds.

Sadly, 2 weeks into my 3 week holiday, I had a fall and broke my hip resulting in a 5 day stay in local private clinic. After I was discharged I had a further 9 weeks in the hotel to recuperate until the doctors and insurance company said I was fit to fly home. The staff at the hotel went far beyond the call of duty …. pushing me around in a wheelchair for the first 2 weeks of my extended stay. Nothing was too much trouble for them.

The main moral of this story is to remind everyone of the need to take adequate travel insurance. If I had not, it would have cost me almost £10,000 in hospital fees and extra hotel room fees for the extended stay.

    The locals in Hammamet cannot understand why our Government are still advising against travel and yet no such advice has been issued for other countries where there has been much more terrorist action (eg Turkey). I have to say i do agree! More and more Brits are returning now. I hope the FCO will review their advice soon.

    Thank you that is reassuring. I was in Tunisia in 2012 just after the Jasmine Revolution and there was such a sense of optimism then. It was such a shame that the attacks on tourists and terrorism began to spoil things.

    I have been to Tunisia 4 times since the FCO adverse advice was issued. I can only speak for the Hammamet area .... I had no worries at all while there. Going out and about in the area was not a problem even at night to local bars and clubs. Hotel security is excellent too.

    A timely reminder. I can't understand people who don't have travel insurance.

    What is the situation in Tunisa like at the moment as far as tourist safety is concerned. Did you have any concerns while you were there?
