@luxoragain<<<I would have thought this happens in other part's of the World not just Tunisia.>>>

You're absolutely correct Alan.

There are also plenty of warnings on numerous TA Destination Forums about how to avoid any unwanted advances, particularly aimed at potentially vulnerable solo females.

I think that the subject of Security is wide ranging, and definitely includes personal security.

I agree with you Giant Axe,

There has been a lot of programs on TV and in the press about the subject of so called love rat's and people getting fleeced of their money,

As they say " love is blind on holiday " yet people still get trapped,

Never take anything for granted,

I don't think all the postings that got deleted were racist......mine certainly wasn't, it was about Personal Security for solo female travellers.

As a solo female traveller I really appreciate any relevant securty/ safety tips but some of the deleted posts were OTT. Ladies,just don't leave your common sense at your UK airport.

Yes indeed, a number of posts were OTT and off topic

Shame really ,as the intention of the OP was to gain information on the Security situation. Only for the thread to be hijacked by a couple of trolls going way off topic,and being disruptive

I once started a thread on "Tipping"

That is tipping staff in hotels.

Only for a troll to hijack the thread and post comments on rubbish/garbage being "tipped" in the resorts.

Some people,eh?

Cannot help themselves,these attention seekers!

Hopefully some sensible contributions will appear in time on this important issue.

I am sure it will.

On another thread it was mentioned that transfer/shuttle coaches were being escorted by police from airport to resort hotels.

That’s great that you opted for a Thomas Cook excursion to Sousse, how was it out and about and how much did you pay for the trip ?

Forgive me in advance for saying,but you must of known that you were on only the 3rd Thomas Cook flight out of the UK to Tunisia ?? Therefore you would be one of the ‘first’ on a Thomas Cook excursion.

Hope you enjoyed it anyway ?

Back to the topic of security and not gold digging luvrats;-)

Some may have heard of the term "State Of Emergency" Some may not


The current State of Emergency(SoE) in Tunisia was due to expire soon, but the Tunisian President this week extended it for another 7 months.

Now the SoE has been in place a number of times since the Revolution of 2011

In fact all our visits since 2011 (lost count, but more than10 visits ) have been during such times.

Dont confuse this (SoE) with restrictions on travel our Govt imposed in the wake of the 2015 tragedy in Port El Kantoui.

Basically the State of Emergency is a political tool that gives the authorities /police /military extended powers in dealing with "internal affairs".

Holidaymakers/tourists will not directly be put out by these measures.

Visible security as has been reported will be evident in resorts anyway, irrespective of this extended State of Emergency ruling..
