When you go to the market be prepared to cut prices. If they say that sth costs 60 DT, start bargaining from 10 DT. Before you will go to the market go to some mall or big department store to see the real prices. There they are just a little bit higher than you can pay. If you don't like bargainig with people, just go to the department store. And have fun. Markets are great, and salesmans are very interesting people. It's fun and exciting. Especially markets in Tunis in Medina.

Ps. If you look alike, say you're student. That could help you to cut the price down.

Have fun

This is so true and only having a little bit of money...and that's it usually works.

what we always do when about to bargain for something; say it costs 60 dinars and you are willing to pay 20, before going to shop hide all the money in your wallet except for 20 dinars. Go in, start bargaining at 10, then when you suggest 20 explain it's all you have - open wallet and show that lonely 20 sat there. Get it out, offer it to the man. 9 times out of 10 you'll get the item (and still have overpaid!!)
