Before you call airlines looking for flights from Washington, DC, you should check with Orbitz.com. The two major airports in DC are Washington Dulles International Airport and Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport. Alaska Airlines, US Airways, and Frontier Airlines handle domestic flights from Ronald Reagan, while Virgin America, ExpressJet Airlines, and Colgan Air operate out of Washington Dulles. Ronald Reagan is only three miles from the downtown area, and Washington Dulles is 26 miles from downtown.
The five parking lots at Ronald Reagan offer daily and hourly parking rates, and the airport charges $20 per day for parking in the long-term lots. The economy lot only charges $12 per day, but this lot is open and uncovered. Washington Dulles has two long-term parking lots that charge $17 per day and one economy lot that charges $10 per day. For $30, you can use valet parking.
The Metrorail and Metrobus make at least one stop at each airport every day. The stops are clearly marked around the city, and you can find maps that help you find the correct line. Taxis are not as low cost as the public transportation options because the drivers charge a pickup fee, baggage fee, fee per mile, and a fee for any time that the driver must wait.
Both airports offer a range of dining options. Washington Dulles is home to Dulles to Go, Five Guys, Subway, and Wendy's, while Ronald Reagan has Dunkin' Donuts, Euro Cafe, and Jerry's Subs & Pizza. Once you have something to eat, you can browse through the sales at some of the shops surrounding the restaurants. If you want to enjoy your vacation, use Orbitz.com to look for flights from Washington DC.
Booking flights to Tunis is easy with Orbitz.com. Just enter your destination, and Orbitz will recommend flights that fit your needs. Tunis-Carthage Airport, also referred to as Tunis Airport or Carthage International Airport, is the main airport in Tunis and is considered to be the premier airport in the country. It is roughly four miles northeast of the city center. Among the airlines serving Tunis Airport are TunisAir, SevenAir, Nouvelair Tunisia and Tunisavia. Lufthansa and Air France are its major international carriers.
The SNT bus line provides an easy ride from the airport to the city center. Another bus line, the TUT, offers a more luxurious ride to and from the airport for a slightly higher fare. Car rental services can be booked right at the arrival hall. Arriving passengers can choose from Avis, Budget, Hertz and Sixt. Metered taxis are also available just outside the terminal. Make sure that the meter fare is turned on, otherwise you might pay extra.
The climate of Tunis is typical of the Mediterranean: It's warm and dry during the summer and cold and wet during winter or rainy season. Summer temperatures, especially from April to August, can reach 40 degrees Celsius, but the cool breeze coming from the sea can ease the heat. November through March is the best time to visit the city, as the heat dissipates during these months. A holiday weather planner can be useful before you check into the city.
Most travelers in Tunis visit the medina, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The medina of Tunis comprises of about 700 ancient monuments, mosques, mausoleums, fountains and madrasas that date back to as early as 723 AD. Other major attractions in the city are the Bardo Museum, the ruins of Carthage and the many cathedrals and mosques. Check budget flights to Tunis with Orbitz.com, and discover the ancient history of this fascinating city.
