What kind of travel insurance might I need for Morocco?

The type of cover you’ll need depends on what you plan to do during your trip. You might need:

European cover Although Morocco is in Africa, some providers consider the country as being in Europe for travel insurance purposes. However, the country isn’t covered by the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC).

Water sports travel insurance A standard travel insurance policy will typically cover you for low-risk sports only – check your policy for details of exactly what’s covered. If you’re planning on taking part in adventurous water sports, such as scuba diving, you may need specialist cover provided by water sports travel insurance. Check with your provider to see whether extra cover can be added to your policy. If not, find a specialist insurance provider who offers the level of cover you need.

Do I need a visa for Morocco?

Brits can visit Morocco for up to three months without a visa. Make sure your passport is stamped when you enter the country, as some tourists have experienced difficulty when leaving the country as their passport has no entry stamp.

Any other travel tips for Morocco?

Vaccinations You should see your doctor four to eight weeks before your trip – they might advise you to have vaccines for hepatitis A, typhoid and tetanus (these are usually free on the NHS).

Culture Morocco is governed by Islamic laws and you’ll need to be respectful of local customs, including a dress code for women (long skirts are preferred to those above the knee). While alcohol is served in bars and hotels in tourist areas, you can be arrested for drinking alcohol in the streets. Sexual relations outside of marriage are punishable by law, so hotels may insist on separate bedrooms if you can’t show proof of marriage. Public displays of affection should be avoided.

Tipping In restaurants, tipping between five and ten per cent is welcomed.
