Currency - Buy in UK or in Agadir

Hi All,

I have been trying to research this. Where is best to buy over £200.00 in M.Dirhams? Here or at the Airport in Agadir. My worry is the rate is going to be lower. Right now it is 11.5 for £1 and 2 weeks ago it was 12 for £1.

Please let me know what you all did and what worked out for you.

Hi,

You will always get a better rate in Morocco. Wait until you arrive.

Hi

Good advice given above. Don't know where you found those rates but they probably don't reflect what you'll actually get in Morocco.

If you haven't already it's worth reading this article about currency

https:/…Banks.And.Money.html

Don't be put off by mention of other Moroccan cities/airports at the beginning - read it to the end where there is some very useful and important information.

There's also been endless discussion on this forum about exchanging money - try searching "currency" or similar.

Have a great holiday.

And airports are rarely (as in never) the best place to change large amounts of money.

Exchange articulation is a precarious business. Moroccan banks are fair and obliging. Avoid hotels in order to obviate the need for loss and complaints
