Maybe not everywhere..best having a visa or master card my friend with..reaching your bank to say you are going to Morocco as they might think that you are a victim of non regular transactions from an African' s country and your card may not work properly.

Good to know!

Cheers! Oliver.

We were able to use our bank debit cards at every ATM we tried. We rarely used our credit cards during our 2-week travels as they're not widely accepted in smaller shops and restaurants.

Each card..(all..) will be charged for each transaction..so better not take 100 dh by 100 dh..but bigger amount.

We use a Visa Credit card everywhere, but if you use your debit credit card it works in some ATMs but all, so you can get more information from the orevious topics same yours using the search box above.

Ats_aku, please heed Oliver's advice at reply#1 above: check with your bank in the UK to inform them of your destination and what charges they apply.
