Tipping

  • Tipping is an integral part of Moroccan life; almost any service can warrant a tip. Baksheesh, frequently taken to mean a bribe, generally means money paid for a service rendered, and can include tipping.
  • Don’t be railroaded, but the judicious distribution of a few dirham for a service willingly rendered can make your life a lot easier.
  • Bear in mind that unskilled workers in Morocco earn less than Dh100 per day.
