A travel-insurance policy to cover theft, loss and, in particular, medical problems is strongly recommended for all visitors to Morocco. Some policies specifically exclude ‘dangerous activities’, which can include scuba diving, motorcycling, skiing and even trekking, so ensure your policy covers these if needed. Make sure you have adequate travel medical insurance and any relevant car insurance if you’re driving.
Buy travel insurance as early as possible. Buying just before you leave home may mean you’re not covered for delays to your flight caused by strike action that began, or was threatened, before you took out the insurance.
