You can buy Dirhams at selected places in the UK but the exchange rate is terrible so don't bother. Wait until you get to Morocco. Have a look at the banks and money article in the top questions box on the right of the page.

Yvonne, use your bank debit card in an ATM machine in the airport immediately after you arrive, and take the maximum daily allowable each time, to save on fees.

Be sure to inform your bank beforehand that your card will be used in Morocco.

There are several places where you can buy Dirhams, but it is not worth the trouble, and you can only bring aproximately £90 in Dirhams. The best thing to do is to change them once you get in the country. If you are worried about paying a taxi from the airport and you have chosen to stay in a riad, then you should know that you can arrange for a taxi to be sent after you, and it will be included in the rate of your room.

Enjoy your stay!
