A warning to all travellers - never attempt to get Moroccan currency anywhere but in Morocco, you may just end up with Emirati Dirhams instead!

shimmin - that's not what I'm asking.

I'm asking for recommendations of where to change "in Agadir". By recommendations, I mean where I won't get ripped off :-)

The article on Banks and Money does include comments on where to exchange in Agadir - banks, hotels, Bureau de Change.

Had you bought in London you would have soon found out about being ripped off.

Hi,

The article I pointed you to is very useful indeed and as has been said the "rip off" would not happen in Morocco but if you bought Dirhams in another country. The bureaux and banks are all fixed exchange rates, hotel rates will be slightly less in your favour.

Thanks, Gilly.

That's exactly the kind of info I was looking for. Will do as you suggest and change a little bit at airport and rest at bank.

When changing money make sure that the banknotes are new, with no rips or writing on them, otherwise they will not change them. Also don't bring Scottish or Northern Ireland banknotes because they won't change them. Change some cash at airport, there are banks everywhere as well as ATM's.

Would I be right in saying that the info given by myself and a few others was totally useless to you then?
