Changing and withdrawing money in Marrakech

I would appreciate if someone can give me an advice on how to handle money in Marrakech? Should I bring Euros or US dollars? Should I just withdraw money from ATMs even if the reviews all over the internet are saying that I can lose my card? What should I do? Many thanks in advance for any help on this.

Also be aware that sometimes an ATM will give you a decline. Don't panic (initially anyway). Use another bank's ATM. The older machines are notorious for not connecting with the dataline and come up with a decline instead.

Hi there!

The Moroccan currency is the Dirham. A bureau de change is available at Marrakech airport and there are ATM machines both at the airport and in the City so you can change your euros or dollars on your arrival to Marrakech or you can withdraw it whenever you need some extra money.

Suggestion: Ask for some small notes or coins when exchanging money. Tips are customary in Marrakech and many everyday items cost much less than a 100 dirham note.

And don't worry about losing your credit card. If it happens to forget your code and the ATM swallows your card, the bank staff will give it back to you in no time!

Just relax and enjoy your trip!
