Current airport dirham rate

Hi I can get 13.85 in the uk at the moment. Is the airport rate higher than this?

Thanks in advance

Surely that's the buying rate not the selling rate isn't it?

Best I've got is 11.40

out of interest, where are you getting your quotes for Moroccan dirhams in the UK?

Usually you can only buy or sell them in Morocco.

Official rate is about £1 = 13MAD at the moment, but obviously the buy/sell spread will be different to that at the banks and currency exchange

Yes you are right it was the buying rate.

Thanks for all your replies.

Dee, don't concern yourself with this.

When you get here, simply use your bank debit card in an ATM machine at the airport, to obtain dirhams. Over on the right side of this page, see Top Questions and the link 'banks and money'.

We returned just over a week ago, it was 12.46 at the airport

We used the ATM machines on a whole as it was easy but wish we hadn't looking back at our bank statements we got a poor rate, charged a commission and then a non uk cash machine fee so each withdrawal was costing us about £8

Ouch. Which bank was that?

Mine charges £1.50 with a reasonable exchange rate and no commission.

Nationwide bank, we have always had a Nationwide account as we travel to Europe a lot and until last year they did free cash withdrawals within Europe but now they have changed it to free travel insurance instead. Time to change banks i think!

Used to have Nationwide, shelby, now changed to Halifax clarity card. Charge is less than 1 pct commission and no withdrawal fee, unless imposed by local bank.
