Transportation

Road
Avoid driving by night because risks incurred by day, on damaged roads, are multiplied by the presence of vehicles parked along the roads or abandoned after accident. There are a few lacks of gas supply in the big North, but it is advised to plan reserves because of the distances between the points of distribution.



Rail
Badly maintained and there are often thefts of luggage, the railroad network knows a general improvement of its performances since its privatiation of last year. It is not very much travelled by visitors.

Air
Monopoly of the company "Camair". Regular domestic flights are not guaranteed and the presentation of a valid ticket is, sometimes, not an assurance to have a seat.
