PLAN YOUR TRIP

PASSPORTS & VISAS

Each passenger must be in possession of a passport, valid for more than six months AFTER the return date of travel. No visa is required for U.S. passport holders for a stay of up to three months. Non-U.S. citizens must contact the Morocco Consulate for visa requirements.


CUSTOMS

Visitors may bring into Morocco personal effects including cameras and up to 10 rolls of film. In addition, 200 cigarettes or 50 cigars, one bottle of wine, one bottle of liquor and 8 ounces of eau de cologne are also permissible. Food items and medicines in reasonable quantities for personal use are also allowed.


BAGGAGE

Passengers are allowed only 44 pounds (20 Kg) of checked luggage and one item of hand luggage per person. You may wish to pack an extra (foldable) travel bag to carry back any purchases you make on your trip. However, due to limited trunk space on vehicles, we encourage you to travel with only one suitcase per person. We strongly recommend that you purchase baggage insurance prior to departure from the USA.


CLIMATE

Annual sunshine levels are more than 8 hours per day in Agadir, Fez, Marrakesh and Ouarzazate with average temperatures above 69 degrees Fahrenheit. Morocco is an unusual country weatherwise; it is possible to go from the snow of the Atlas Mountains to the hot and dry Saharan desert in one single day! The country has, more or less, a continental climate, hotter and drier in summer to the south, but moderated by the sea to the west. In summer, the inland desert is very dry and hot, but its winter nights can turn quite cold.

DRIVER'S LICENSE

If you are renting a car in Morocco, an International Driver's License is recommended and should be obtained prior to arrival.

TRANSFERS

When you arrive at the airport in each city you will be visiting -if you have transfers - you will be met outside Customs by a representative from our local ground operator and taken to the vehicle which will transport you to your hotel.

If you have not arranged transfers in advance, you will not be met at the airport. In that case, you may go directly to your hotel or, should you have a car rental, you may pick up your car from the car rental company with the voucher with which we have provided you. Please keep your hotel and car rental vouchers in a safe place and present them (one at a time) as each service is provided.

REMEMBER! AFFIX YOUR BAGGAGE TAGS AND WEAR YOUR NAME BADGE.

CURRENCY

Morocco's currency is the Dirham (DH) divided into 100 centimes. There are 10, 50, 100 and 200 DH notes, 1 and 5 DH coins and 5, 10, 20 and 50 centime. Money may be exchanged at a bank or at an approved change office (indicated by a golden sign) or at hotels (which all offer the same rate of exchange). No commission is charged and you will be given a slip, which will be required at the end of your stay to change any remaining Dirhams back into the original currency. (Note: Dirhams cannot be taken out of Morocco.) It is illegal to change money in the streets.

TIME

Moroccan time is the same as Greenwich Mean Time, or 5 hours ahead of Eastern Standard Time USA. This does not take into account any local seasonal time changes.
