Does anyone know if we can exchange Australian currency at the Casablanca Airport?

I intend to change AUD at Casablanca and on the grounds that it's a legitimate currency I don't foresee any problems. Just make sure the notes are in good condition.

Just tried it on arriving tonight..

Nope you can't. They will handle lots of other currencies it seems, but not Australian Dollars.

I'd suggest going with either GBP,USD or EUR. I'm going to try to find somewhere to change over the AUD that I have, so will update when I do find somewhere.

Hi,

As far as I'm aware it's not possible to change Australian Dollars anywhere in Morocco. If you find somewhere please do let everyone know.

We couldn't change our Dirhams back into Stirling at Casa airport. So we had to get Euros.

Interesting, a colleague of mine has been exchanging Canuck Bucks without any trouble, and at better rates than are offered for USD, despite them being near par.

Hi,

Canadian dollars do indeed seem to be accepted in exchanges here in Morocco. Edited the aforementioned article to reflect this.

Well when it comes to foreign currency exchange in morocco this what the central bank states)

you can exchange 15 countries money)

1 Euro

2 U.S. dollar

3 Canadian dollar

4 Pound sterling

5 Pound Gibraltar

6 Swiss franc

7. 100 Danish kroner

8. 100 Swedish kroner

9. 100 Norwegian kroner

10 Saudi Arabian riyal

11 Kuwaiti dinar

12 U.A.E.dirham

13 Qatari dinar

14 Bahreini dinar

15100 Japanese yens

Its a shame that AUS and NZ dollars not added on central bank list.

But I know in Egypt, AUS dollars can be exchanged.

I just hope that Morocco Gov thinks about it.

But number one foreign currency to exchanged is Euro then (USD American)
