Didn't have any luck what so ever, the compare company's all give you a quote but as soon as you call and explain the fco' s advise it's a no. The problem with Battleface they only seem to cover medical expenditure, cancellation
of trip due to illness before you go / flight delays etc is a no.
Was thinking of approaching one of the company's in Tunisia to take out medical cover from there the next time we go x

Surely that is what you want covered in the main, medical cover. I have never claimed for a flight delay covered or not and Tunisair are NEVER on time :)

Absolutely! However we had to curtail previous flights and re schedule and pay for new ones due to my husband being poorly. Unfortunately Battleface stated that they don't cover for that. So had to pay another premium to them for the new flights! Since our return have spoken to them and the underwriters are prepared to take an annual fee at a reduced cost to cover future trips, providing we take a minimum of 4trips within the year ! X

Hi! I’ll travel to Tunisia later this year, I’ve read that I need to get a Tunisia online visa for UK citizens so I’ll sort that out. But can anyone give me some information about the COVID situation? I couldn’t find any direct flight from Manchester and I’ll most likely have to transit through Paris, what would the restrictions be in this case?

Hi.
UK residents don’t need a visa to Tunisia for visit’s up to 3 months.
A Landing card however has to be completed for entry into the country which are available at immigration or sometimes handed out on board your flight.
They’re are no chartered direct flights available to Tunisia due to the Covid situation do check the Government’s FCO for updated entry requirements.
Tunisia is currently on the UK’s red list which would mean if you manage to get a scheduled flight from Gatwick or Heathrow with the likes of Tunisair you would need a PCR test prior to flying complete a PLF (Passenger Locator Form) a Health declaration form along with proof of double vaccination both certificate from the NHS and a digital format. On return to the UK you would need a PCR test along with a PLF on line declaration and quarantine would be required at your expense at a nominated hotel which has to be booked prior to your outbound travel via the Gov.UK web site.
Current situation at the moment are not the best not only Covid numbers but lots of demonstrations along with a daily curfew.
You mentioned travelling via Europe which we have done many times but prior to covid. One needs to check on updated travel requirements for the layover country.
