Located in Northern Africa, Morocco is a country filled with beautiful picturesque buildings, luxurious accommodation and treasure troves of Moroccan souks, all well worth exploring. Because this glorious country has so much to offer, it is becoming increasingly popular with tourists across the globe.

Like most countries, there are different areas of Morocco that appeal to different holiday-goers looking to experience the country. As Morocco’s top tourist destination, Marrakesh offers you everything you could want from a city break; food, drink, nightlife and shopping. If you’re looking for something more medieval, Fez is the place for you. This walled city is filled with traditional goods for purchase and traditional Moroccan music to enjoy.

Many tourists that visit Morocco are stunned by the gorgeous buildings lining the streets, and the delicious Moroccan food that is available to eat. Despite Morocco being a short flight from the UK, it has a completely unique culture that you cannot experience anywhere else in the world.  Explore the cities you are staying in and immerse yourself in that area, or hire a car and drive the Moroccan roads to your hearts content. If you’re keen for exploration, a Moroccan road trip could be the ideal holiday destination for you!

Another unique selling point of Morocco is the fact that you are close enough to explore the Sahara Desert. If you are visiting Morocco, you could prolong your stay in the desert beneath the stars. Further to the sandy desert, you can gaze upon the glorious Atlas mountain ranges and visit the beaches of Morocco as well.

The official languages in Morocco are Arabic and Berber. Not many people speak English in Morocco, so be sure to learn some phrases to enable you to communicate with the locals before your visit. Also, don’t forget to change your currency into Moroccan dirham.

No matter your plans whilst you are in Morocco, it is important that you take out travel insurance to protect yourself against many unforeseen eventualities.

Below is some information about our products, for which Terms & Conditions apply. Please visit the policy information hub for full details. 

Although purchasing travel insurance for your trip to Morocco isn’t a legal requirement, it should still be viewed as essential for your trip. Having travel insurance means that you are better protected should anything unexpectedly go wrong on your trip.

Many tourists visit Morocco on holiday every year, and most trips are trouble-free. However, it is important to be prepared for unforeseen circumstances once you go on holiday. In Morocco, you should respect the Islamic laws and customs at all times. Find out more about the local laws and customs here.

The risk of a terrorist attack is very likely in Morocco. Because of this, you should be vigilant at all times. Furthermore, tensions across the region may be heightened because of the attack on the coalition and US airstrikes. This has meant a higher risk of threat against Western visitors, including tourists coming from the UK. This is another reason to remain vigilant whilst on your trip to Morocco. It is useful to keep up with developments on these issues by looking at the media and keeping up with travel advice on GOV.uk.
