Sunday arrival in Marrakech

Hi everyone,

I'm a Canadian who's travelling to Marrakech next week, and I plan to take my ATM card, credit cards, and travellers cheques. Two questions: 1) Are Euro travellers cheques the way to go? And 2) are there ATM's at Marrakech so that we can get cash for the taxi to the hotel? If not, any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

There are ATM's at Marrakech airport and also in the town center. They generally are in working order.
You will need a pin code (digits) with your card to be able to retrieve money from these ATM's.

Just outside the airport building exit, there is a big shield indicating the exact cost for a cab fare which depends on the taxi size (grand or petit taxi).

"Petits taxis" can only take a maximum of 3 persons on board.

Regarding traveller cheques, they are accepted at major banks, wether in dollars or euros.
Visa card is also accepted in hotels, large restaurants and shops.

We found that Visa was widely accepted in Marrakech but American Express was not (although I'm sure the major hotels accept it), so bear that in mind if you are planning to pay for anything by credit card.

We just used ATMs and paid for most things in cash or by Visa when we were there.
