Reasons why you should get travel insurance for your next trip to Morocco

Medical Cost

While traveling, unforeseen health issues or accidents can occur. Travel insurance can cover medical expenses, hospital stays, doctor's visits, and medications, ensuring you receive the necessary medical care without worrying about costs.

Lost Baggage

Luggage can occasionally be misplaced or delayed during air travel, causing inconvenience. Travel insurance can provide compensation for essential items if your baggage is lost, stolen, or delayed for an extended period.

Natural Disasters

Morocco, like any other destination, may experience natural disasters. Travel insurance can provide coverage for trip disruptions caused by these events, including reimbursement for unused portions of your trip.

Adventure Activities

If you plan to engage in adventure sports or activities, travel insurance can offer coverage in case of accidents or injuries related to these activities.

Main Facts About Morocco

The Moroccan dirham is the official monetary currency of Morocco. It is issued by the Bank Al-Maghrib, the central bank of Morocco. As you can't take Moroccan dirhams out of Morocco, you'll need to spend any cash you have, or convert it back before you leave. To save currency conversion fees, try to plan your spending ahead and make sure you don't have any cash left over when you're traveling home.
In Morocco, there are two official languages: Arabic and Amazigh. Classical Arabic, also known as Literary Arabic, is the language of administration, but Moroccan Arabic is more commonly spoken in everyday life. While English is not widely spoken throughout Morocco, with about one in six or seven people having some proficiency, it is more common in holiday resorts and complexes. It is always a good idea to learn a few basic phrases in Arabic or Amazigh to better communicate with locals during your trip to Morocco.
Most of Morocco, particularly along the coast, experiences a typical Mediterranean climate, with mild, wet winters and hot, dry summers. Marrakesh has an average temperature of 29°C (84°F) and the coldest is January at 12.5°C (55°F) with the most daily sunshine hours at 10.8 in July. The wettest month is November with an average of 40.6mm of rain.

Fun Fact
Marrakesh is a city with a rich history, stunning architecture, and unique culture. It was once a prominent imperial city in Morocco, and its red walls and buildings, which give it the nickname of "Red City" or "Ochre City," were built by King Ali ibn Yusuf of the Almoravid dynasty to protect the city. These red buildings are now a defining characteristic of Marrakesh. Whether you explore the city's historic sites or immerse yourself in its vibrant culture, there is much to discover in Marrakesh.
