Morocco is known for its tolerance and diversity, so as a visitor, you are not expected to conform or adopt Moroccan attire or behaviour. However, when visiting rural areas and villages, we recommend dressing more conservatively out of respect for local traditions and to minimize unwanted attention.
By being aware of these cultural nuances and adapting your clothing choices accordingly while exploring different regions of Morocco, you can ensure a more enjoyable and respectful experience during your visit.

While it is not mandatory, we highly recommend obtaining the appropriate travel insurance before embarking on your journey. Opting for a comprehensive travel protection program will provide you with peace of mind and coverage in case of unforeseen circumstances that may disrupt or impact your holiday.
A good travel insurance policy should include coverage for various situations such as unexpected events that might lead to trip cancellation or interruption, unforeseen delays, medical assistance while abroad, as well as protection against loss of or damage to baggage.
Having the right travel insurance ensures that you are financially protected and can receive necessary support if any unfortunate incidents occur during your time in Morocco. It is always better to be prepared and have adequate coverage so that you can fully enjoy your trip without worry.

When traveling to Morocco, it is generally safe for locals to drink tap water as they have built up immunity to the bacteria present. However, as a visitor from another country, it is advisable to opt for bottled water. This precaution is recommended because your body may not be accustomed to the specific bacteria found in the local tap water, and there is a possibility of experiencing digestive issues or other discomforts. By choosing bottled water, you can ensure that you stay hydrated without worrying about potential health risks associated with drinking tap water in an unfamiliar environment.

It is important to note that while credit cards are generally accepted at large stores, high-end establishments, hotels, and restaurants in Morocco, cash is still required for transactions in small shops and Souks (traditional markets). To ensure a smooth travel experience, it is recommended to be prepared by carrying enough cash with you during your trip. This will enable you to make purchases in places where credit card payments may not be feasible.

We recommend consulting with your local health centre or a healthcare professional who can provide guidance based on your specific needs and medical history.

You are correct. The Moroccan Dirham is a closed currency, which means it is not readily available outside of Morocco. It can be difficult and expensive to find dirhams in other countries. Therefore, it is advisable to wait until you arrive in Morocco to exchange your currency.
Once in Morocco, we can assist you in finding recommended points of exchange or ATMs where you can withdraw cash. ATMs are widely available throughout the country and often offer competitive exchange rates. Despite potential fees from your own bank for international withdrawals and ATM provider charges, using an ATM may still be more cost-effective compared to exchanging money beforehand.
By utilizing local ATMs or recommended exchange services upon arrival, you can ensure that you have access to Moroccan Dirhams without paying excessive fees or dealing with unfavorable exchange rates.

Tipping in Morocco is a customary practice and is generally appreciated by service providers. Whether you are a visitor or a local, it is common to tip for good service. The amount you choose to tip is at your discretion, but the standard range is usually around 10-15% of the total bill.
In certain situations where someone guides you back to your accommodation or helps you find a restaurant, they may expect a small tip as well. A typical offering in these cases would be around 10-30 Dirhams.
Remember that tipping should always be based on the quality of service received and how satisfied you are with it. It's important to consider local customs and norms while determining the appropriate amount to tip.
