Money at the Airport

Hi Everyone,

Just a quick question I'm hoping someone can help with, I know a lot of people have said to change your money once you get to the airport in Marrakech but we will be getting a transfer from the airport so just wondered if we would have time? Not sure what the wait is like for people changing money if everyone's just got off the plane :)

Thanks for your time. x

Yes there is time. There are many change kiosks. Don't bother queuing at the desk in baggage reclaim, instead go to the kiosks in the main airport hall.

As you have arranged for a transfer you shouldn't need any Moroccan money at the start so maybe wait until you reach your hotel to save time.

having a tight schedule for our first full day, we needed to change money at the airport. my husband queued while i waited for the bags and he was back before the second case arrived. if the queue does look too long and slow, there are a few exchange desks in the departure hall. try to get some small denomination notes - even with pre-booked transfers you may wish to tip.

do be aware - not all hotels and riads offer exchange facilities, and those that do may not give the best rates.

Sort of off topic, but does anyone know if you can also change money in the Rabat airport?

as the fella above said, there a slow moving queue in baggage claim many people get into. Ignore it and go through with your bags and there are many change desks on the right through the exit doors. Its quite obvious once your there. Keep the exchange paper they give you as you'll need it to change any back when you return.

Have a good holiday, Marrakesh is mad and brilliant!
