Hints and Tips for Morocco

Red Tape:
Visas are not required for British Nationals, entry is reasonably simple. We encountered middle men who for $10 helped fill out all the appropriate forms.
There are several police checkpoints on route, they asked us for money but a smile and a joke with a polite no meant we never paid.

Morocco
Fuel Costs:
Diesel cost 5.7Dirham per litre, however it is 2.85Dirham per litre in Western Sahara

Road Quality:
Drive on the right, all major routes are good quality tarmac (even to the boarder)

Money:
Dirham
There are several banks that take visa and there are ATMs

Highlights:
Marrakech with the souks and the market square after 5pm when the food stalls set up.
The new Mosque in Casablanca
The Atlas Mountains, we enjoyed the Cascades d’Ozoud and a nearby Lake

Places to Stay:
We found no problems with Bush Camping all over Morocco
Marrakech – Camping Feradaous 13 km along the Casablanca road, with friendly staff and reasonable facilities
We failed to find a reasonable campsite in Casablanca, but the youth hostel is ok and there is good secure parking nearby.

Useful People:
The tee-shirt and sticker seller at Feradaous was very helpful, although Jay Clean is expensive.

Tips:
Making a form containing all passport details, profession, address, and parents names, copies of which you could give to the police would save a lot of time at checkpoints
