Money..need advice.

I hate carrying anything but  small amounts of cash  when I travel. Can someone advise me if it is absoleutely necessary to carry cash for our entire 3 week trip?  If so must it be carried on your person at all times or is there someplace to "secure" cash on this safe etc. 

Can someone who has done this trip advise me please?



Can  anyone advise me how I might ship items to the US from Marrakesh at a reasonable cost? I would like to buy a few  items that might  be too big to carry home. I did this in Kenya and it worked out well but I waited 6 mos for the ship to arrive in Florida....and then spent a half day in US customs. Howver I am really enjoying the items I purchased there. It was worth it.


Hi there, I did this trip earlier in the year and there were ATMs in a lot of the towns we visited. There are a few days i.e. in the mountains when you don't need much in terms of money - nor can you get it. Our guide was really good at letting us know when we were near an ATM and more importantly when we would see the next one so you could get what you needed for the time in between. If you do find yourself getting short let your guide know and they'll find one for you. If you're going to use an ATM don't forget to let your bank know before you go, and take the telephone number for them too. A couple of people didn't and lost their cards in machines but got round it eventually. In terms of somewhere 'secure', there wasn't really, but then you're not really in any place long enough to be able to do anything but keep it on you! Hope this helps. Enjoy your trip!


I appreciate the tip. How did you enjoy your trip??
