buy or rent: Tunisia to Morocco or Spain

I am coming to Tunisia from Italy in mid-july and I was wondering if it was possible to buy a motorcycle there and sell it once I am in Morocco or Spain. Is that even allowed? If yes, what is the paperwork involved?

If I can't do that, does anyone know if I could rent a motorcycle from Tunisia to Morocco or Spain and what the rates might be like?

If that is also impossible, what plan B would you suggest?


Thank you!

This sounds like a pipe dream.

You can't get from Tunisia to Morocco other than going via Spain.

You certainly can't sell a motorbike in Morocco, you wouldn't be allowed out of the country unless you then paid the exorbitant import duties.

Have a think about what you are asking re motorcycle hire from Tunisia to Spain... How is the company going to get the bike back?

Thanks for the reply. I understand that what I am asking is a bit farfetched and hopeless but I just dont know anything about this region.

What do you mean there is no way to Marocco fromTunisia except through spain? The Algerian border is closed?

Again, thank you.

It's not like US/Can/Mex.
You cant cross borders with rentals in North Af and moto rental is only viable in Morocco, eg: loc2roues in Marrakech.

For more info have a look here: Sahara Overland ~ Trans Sahara Routes or here Sahara Overland ~ Country Information or search previous posts here.

Plan B? Rent a Vespa just enjoy Italy in July!
