Visiting Morocco? Don’t forget your Travel Insurance.

As a holiday location, Morocco is increasing in popularity each year. With more and more tourists finding themselves drawn to this captivating destination. 

One of the simplest ways to enjoy Morocco is to relax in a café and watch the world go by. If this isn’t for you, there are also plenty of activities to enjoy, including hiking, camel riding or shopping in the souqs. Morocco is an experience you can’t miss out on. 

The four imperial cities of Morocco are Marrakech, Fes, Meknes, and the capital, Rabat. The North African country is rich in historical and cultural significance. With smells, colours, and tastes around every corner, Morocco is a land full of diversity and surprises. 

Regardless of the cultural wonders, you’ll want to avoid expensive surprises while on holiday, such as unexpected medical bills. This is why it is essential to ensure you have good Travel Insurance before your departure.

There is much to explore in Morocco, from the maze of Fez to the street theatre of Marrakech’s Djemaa El Fna. You can spend time wandering through the vast streets of each city, enjoying a mix of old and new architecture in Casablanca, Rabat, and Tangier. Get lost in a blend of Arabic, Jewish, Western European, and Berber cultural influences. There is no better choice for travellers seeking an exotic holiday close to Europe than Morocco. 

Regardless of which adventure you choose, you should always ensure you have Travel Insurance before you set off. That way, you’ll be protected against any incidents while on your trip.

Travel tips for your next trip to Morocco

Morocco is a beautiful, culturally-rich country. Our travel tips will help you make the most of your holiday and understand your surroundings better.

Dress Appropriately

90% of the Moroccan population identify as Muslim. Moroccans dress conservatively in accordance with the country’s religious and cultural customs.

You must respect their rules. Beachwear is not appropriate for exploring the cities, towns, and villages and is especially not acceptable when visiting mosques. Women should dress conservatively and cover their shoulders and legs. Although they are allowed to show more skin, men should also consider dressing modestly.

Fridays are holy days

Morocco is a Muslim country, so you should be aware of Muslim holy days to avoid disappointment. Most shops and attractions are closed on Fridays, as it is the day of the Muslim sabbath.

Cash & Currency

The ‘dirham’ is the currency of Morocco. Unlike many other nations, it’s a closed currency, which means you can’t exchange your money until you get to Morocco. We recommend taking cash because ATMs are notorious for running out of money, and many local shops do not take credit or debit cards.

Tourists can’t go inside Mosques

Unfortunately, if you are not Muslim, it is prohibited to visit the inside of a mosque in Morocco. However, the Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca is the only exception. Non-Muslims are allowed to enter, but only if they are part of a tour.

Is Morocco classified as Europe for Travel Insurance purposes?

If you’re arranging a single-trip Travel Insurance policy, you need to select Morocco from a drop-down list. For annual policies, you will have to select Europe or Worldwide. For most insurers, Morocco is actually rated as Europe, despite its location. However, be careful, as with some insurers, it’s not classed as Europe, so you’d need a worldwide policy to be covered.

        Yes, like every holiday you go on, you should take Travel Insurance. When travelling to Morocco, you must find Travel Insurance that covers your holiday and health needs. 

        Unlike many other countries, Morocco does not have a reciprocal healthcare agreement with the UK, meaning free medical treatment is unavailable to UK visitors.

        Crime rates tend to be high in popular tourist destinations – Morocco is no different. If any of your belongings are stolen, damaged or lost, your Travel Insurance policy can protect you financially should you need to make a claim.
