Writing a post about the cost of travel, or prices in Morocco is difficult.
Firstly, depending on your travel style and how long you’re in the country for, prices can vary wildly on your own Morocco experience. There are a plethora of luxury resorts, riads and spas, which charge accordingly, whilst backpackers can spend less than £5 on a dorm bed in some places and eat pretty cheaply. Thankfully, it’s quite easy to slot into a groove and find something which will suit your budget wherever you roam.
So, is Morocco expensive? For us, it was an affordable destination which allowed us to spend a little more on certain activities – like an unforgettable road trip to the Sahara Desert and Atlas Mountains.
The most challenging aspect for planning your travel budget and establishing the standard cost of living in Morocco however, is that certain day-to-day expenses actually come in three unofficial tiers:
Sounds confusing and possibly a little far-fetched, but trust us on this one. Fundamentally however, for many items, you’ll find a wide range of prices being touted and, sometimes, it’s up to you to determine how much something is really worth (and to play your part in that famous Moroccan haggle). If you can get somewhere between the last two, then you’ll be doing well.
