We speak Moroccan Arabic !
In Morocco, we speak Arabic, but beware, not any Arabic ! Moroccan Arabic is the official language of the country with French, but most locals also speak Berber.
I’m guessing you don’t speak Moroccan Arabic so don’t worry, French is widely spoken across the country
Don’t worry, be happy ! The language of Shakespeare is spoken too, but less fluently.

The main currency in Morocco is the Moroccan Dirham (MAD). 1 euro is about 10,84 MAD / 1USD : 9,64 MAD / 1GBP : 12,01 MAD / 1CAD : 7,30 MAD.
It is better if you withdraw dirhams before leaving or you go to a foreign exchange office when you arrive. Cash withdrawals or card payments include fees : 2% for withdrawals and 3 to 3.5% for card payments.
The credit / debit card (and especially the visa) is accepted in some restaurants, shops and petrol stations, as well as in most hotels.
Don’t forget to call your banker and tell them you’ll be using your card abroad, otherwise they might think it is fraudulent activity and block your card !
The bus is a good solution for traveling in Morocco because the lines serve almost the whole country, even the most remote places ! However, they are often loaded, so it will be necessary to arrive in advance to have a place. A supplement will be asked if you have luggage, and it will be higher if your luggage weighs more than 10kg / 22 lbs. Do not forget your ticket or receipt, because checks are very common on buses.
The three main bus companies in Morocco are CTM, Supratours and SATAS.
If you are in Morocco in the middle of the summer, we advise you to do as the locals : take the bus early in the morning, when it is still a bearable heat, and especially do not forget your bottle of water !
The best way to discover Morocco is to rent a car, you will be completely free, at ease and with air conditioning ! You will find all the major car rental companies in Morocco, but you can also go through local agencies. It is still better to rent your car over the Internet.
For this, you must be at least 21 years old, but you will have an additional tax, this one is removed from the moment you are over 25 years old. And beware, in some cases, rental agencies refuse to rent to drivers over 75 years. Regarding the permit, the international is valid.
Also, be aware that a car rented in Morocco remains in Morocco, you can not take a tour by neighboring countries. In addition, stay on the paved roads because from the moment you ride on tracks with your rental car, insurance no longer covers you.
Be careful driving in the big cities, it can get complicated quickly, take your time, drive at your own pace, and pay attention to everything around you : cars that deviate and change direction without warning. Also pay attention to the pedestrians who cross the street whether it is on a small road of countryside or on a national road !

Tips to travelers
⛑ On our side, we always go on a trip with a first aid kit, it can be more than useful. Add in this kit “made” paracetamol and medications for belly type Spasfon… You never know !
📖 The travels inexorably damage the passports… To avoid changing yours every 3 stripes, we advise you to opt for a passport cover !
🔐 You want to secure your bag a minimum ? Opt for a “special suitcase” padlock. Remember that between a protected suitcase and an unprotected suitcase, careless people will prefer to tackle the unprotected one.
🔌 Depending on the country, you may need a universal electrical outlet.
⚡️ You take pictures with your smartphone, use it for GPS, watch the time, and so on ? You will probably need an external battery to charge your phone during the day !
