current exchange rate for USD into Moroccan Dirhams

Does anyone know what the current exchange rate is for USD into Moroccan Dirhams?

The rates locally at Travel Ex and Forex are total rip-offs. Does anyone in Morocco accept USD?

Do not buy dirhams before entering the country as (1) you are limited to bringing in a maximum of 1000 dh, and (2) the rates you will be quoted are poor.

Check out the 'BANKS AND MONEY' thread under 'top questions'.

Basically do what everyone else does which is to withdraw money as you need it from ATMs using a debit card.

The rate currently quoted on xe.com is 8.35 but this can fluctuate by the hour.

Are ATM's found throughout the country, such as in the smaller towns in the High Atlas or should we "stock up" in one of the larger cities? Thanks in advance for your reply

You should change enough money for your trip in to the High Atlas before you leave the plains. ATMs are few and far between once you head into the mountains.There are none in Imlil, for example.

Of course, Blmamh, your question has opened up quite a different topic to that posed originally in this thread by dvmxyz. It would be good practice for you to raise your question in a new thread.
