Destination: Morocco

The North African Kingdom of Morocco is often described as a gateway: step through and discover a world of colour, diversity and wonder, unlike anything you have experienced before. Rich traditions and heritage are very much alive here, but there is a paradoxical youthfulness to the culture, and a warmth that will draw you further and further in. Get lost in the myriad of cobbled alleyways, or feel small within the red sands of the desert, or at the foothills of the Atlas Mountains. There is something for every traveller in Morocco.

Touring Morocco

The need to know

Getting around

Odyssey travels by coach and occasionally uses local transport, including trains and ferries. Specifics are always outlined in your tour itinerary. Morocco has a centralised and impressively extensive rail network — the best in Africa. It links most major centres, is reasonably priced, and is generally preferable to bus travel. The network is operated by the Office National des Chemins de Fer (ONCF). Casablanca and Rabat are also serviced by modern trams, with plans to extend into Marrakech. Petit taxis are readily available for short-distance travel within main cities.


In major cities, Odyssey stays in centrally located 3-4 star hotels, with easy access to public transport. In smaller towns or rural areas, we usually stay in family-run hotels or guesthouses. On our longstay tours, during which you spend the length of the tour in a single location, we use serviced apartments.

Health & Safety

As of writing, recommends exercising a high degree of caution when travelling in Morocco. It’s always best to check the latest details before setting out on a trip. Certain parts of Morocco should be avoided for the time being, particularly toward the south and south-east near the Western Sahara. There are risks associated with specific areas, and it is important to take these into consideration when planning your trip. But countries like Morocco rely heavily on tourism, and refusing travel can be detrimental to a struggling economy. Stay apprised of government recommendations for Morocco in order to be best prepared for your trip.

Electrical Supply

Whenever you travel overseas, it’s always wise to take an appropriate travel adaptor. Plugs in Morocco have two round pins, of types C and E. Voltage is 127V, 220V and 50 Hz. Make sure to pick up the right adaptor before your trip.

What is the time zone?

Morocco is on Western European Time (WET), or UTC+0. The nation observes Daylight Savings Time (Western European Summer Time or WEST), making it UTC+1.

Is tipping customary in Morocco?

If you’re on an Odyssey tour, we take care of tipping so you don’t need to give it a second thought. However, in your free time, or if travelling independently, it’s essential that you tip an appropriate amount for services. There is no general rule for tipping in Morocco, so to some extent, it is discretionary. Upmarket restaurants may include gratuities in your bill, so be sure to check this before leaving an additional tip. It is always a good idea to tip hotel staff and drivers.

What is the internet access like in Morocco?

Internet is easily accessible, and most hotels and many cafes will be able to offer it.

Can I use my mobile/cell phone while in Morocco?

Check with your cell phone provider to see whether you’re able to make calls and use data while in Morocco. Many providers will allow you to pay a daily fee that allows you to make calls and check the internet while only being charged your regular rates. However, be certain to inform your provider that you’re heading overseas, because just like a bank they can turn off your service as a result of unusual activity.

Responsible travel tips for Morocco

  • Learn at least the local greetings to break the ice. Although many locals speak English, the more you know of the native language, the greater your experience of the country will be.
  • Carry a business card in your wallet or purse from your local hotel, to assist you with the return journey if you do become lost.
  • Always ensure that you are covered by travel insurance. If you need advice on this feel free to contact Odyssey and we’ll be able to help.
  • When travelling independently, make sure you check the opening hours of shops and museums so that you don’t miss out! Museums and galleries are often closed on Mondays. Also be certain to check whether your trip coincides with any public holidays, so you can plan accordingly.
  • Consider contacting your bank to inform them that you may be making purchases overseas. Otherwise, they may flag any activity on your account as suspicious. Also, check which ATMs and banks are compatible with your cards, to ensure you can withdraw cash with minimal fees.
  • Before departing, make sure you have a number of Moroccan dirham in a range of denominations. You don’t want to be carrying around enormous amounts of cash, but take enough to make it easy to pay in locations that might not accept credit card. It will also help you avoid card transaction fees, and it makes tipping a breeze.
