Following Attacks, Tunisian Suppliers Allow Free Event Cancelations




Tunisian hotels and suppliers are offering free cancellations in a bid to prevent a sudden shortage of business and incentive travel since last week's terrorist attack in Sousse.

No cancellations have been reported and local destination management companies (DMCs) say they are in regular touch with event planners to answer queries about security concerns.
