Just come back from an excellent week at the Founty Beach. We took about £200 in cash with us (mix of £ sterling and Euros) which we were able to change very easily in the hotel (fixed exchange rate across the country, and no comission charge for chaning cash... but a small charge for swapping traveller's cheques). We saw plenty of ATM's in town. Probably the easiest thing to do is grab a local taxi & let them take you to an ATM (note that virtually ANY local taxi journey in Agadir costs about 20 Dhiram... £1.50 or so.... don't let them con you into paying 100's of Dhiram!... early in the trip we took a taxi to the souk & the driver just asked how much we wanted to pay... having no idea we suggested 80 Dhiram & obviously he snatched our hand off!).

As you are not allowed to take Dhirams in or out of the country, and thre was no difference in cost for changing £20 stirling vs £100, I'd suggest getting smaller amounts of cash to the end of your holiday to ensure you have no local currency left when you go home. The hotel would not change Dhirams back to stirling, & when you get to the airport,the exchange is in arrivals!

Thanks for the advise. Is it also right that you have to have euros or dollars in the departure lounge at the airport or can you use english money?

What was the weather like also??

Thanks again.

Yes, the departure lounge shops don't accept Dhiram, but do accept Euros or dollars. Don't know about stirling. We didn't have any cash left at this stage, so had to resort to credit cards for any last-minute purchases. The goods were priced in Euros, but the shopkeeper converted amounts to Dhiram to charge to visa.

Weather (last week of feb) was best described as "English Summer" i.e. in 7 days, we had 1 day rain, a couple of reasonably sunny days, and a few days which were slightly cloudy or quite overcast. There was also a cold wind on one or two occasions. However, we didn't go expecting baking sunshine, so were not disappointed.
