As fascinating as Morocco is, following some tips on how to stay safe and make the most of your travel insurance policy will help.
Wandering through the streets of Marrakesh, Casablanca, Tangier, Fez, Agadir and Essaouira can be an insightful experience, but you must keep your wits about you and ensure you always have your valuables in sight. Bag snatching and pickpockets often target these popular tourist areas, and women, if traveling alone, may be the subject of unwanted attention. We offer cover if you're after travel insurance for your tech gear and other high-value items. To upgrade the cover for high-value items, list them on your policy and pay the additional premium.
Terrorist cells do target the Maghreb region of North Africa which includes Morocco, so it’s crucial that you monitor the media. You should always take government warnings and travel alerts seriously. These groups often seek out populated areas and can also be active in mountain regions.
Demonstrations are also possible, and it’s worth bearing in mind that public protests and events that draw large groups of people can turn violent. The status of the Western Sahara has been an issue of dispute, and tensions can boil over. To avoid being caught up in a protest, take care on days of national or commemorative significance and be extra vigilant on weekends, especially around the time of Friday prayers.
World Nomads offers trip delay coverage, and trip interruption may apply if your trip can’t be completed or it’s necessary to return home early. If you actively involve yourself in a protest, you are putting yourself and your insurance cover at risk.
Some waterborne and foodborne diseases are common across Morocco, so travelers are advised to only drink treated, filtered or bottled water, to avoid ice cubes and not to swim in fresh water.
Contaminated water, which can cause nausea, vomiting, stomach cramps, and diarrhea, can lay you up for days, the most serious outcome of which is dehydration. This can be deadly, so don’t rely on your own instincts, instead seek medical advice immediately.
Our 24/7 Emergency Assistance Team will be able to give you advice on what to do, help locate suitable medical facilities (particularly in remote areas) and will monitor your medical treatments to make sure you are given proper care.
Our policies can offer overseas emergency medical benefits. Check your policy to see what the maximum amount of coverage you have, as it will vary depending on your home country and the plan you’ve selected. If you want to claim your medical expenses, be sure to keep records and receipts of your doctor’s visits and medical treatment, and any other documentation to support your claim.
If you want to avoid large crowds, the best time to visit Morocco is autumn (September to November) or early spring (March to April). If you are traveling in summer, then the best months are June to August. You should know there will be bigger crowds in the summer months, especially if you plan to visit some of its seaside hot spots such as Tangier, Essaouira and Taghazout.
World Nomads polices are designed by travelers for travelers to provide simple and flexible travel insurance. Featuring coverage for more than 150 activities, you can get a quote, claim, or extend your policy online at www.worldnomads.com. All the information we provide about travel insurance is a brief summary only. It does not include all terms, conditions, limitations, exclusions, and termination provisions of the travel insurance plans described. Coverage may not be available for residents of all countries, states or provinces. Please carefully read your policy wording for a full description of coverage.
Traveler Tip 1: make copies of all key documents you’ll be traveling with – passport, ID, travel insurance, receipts, vouchers, addresses, transportation tickets – and keep them separate from the originals while abroad so you’ll have backups and proof of purchase if anything happens.
Traveler tip 2: if you’re a victim of theft, to file a claim, be sure you get a police report or other written documentation such as a property irregularity report from your common carrier.
Traveler tip 3: many countries may require proof of vaccination before you can enter, and some have introduced visas and travel insurance minimum requirements. Do your research before you go as travel insurance does not cover expenses you incur because you don’t have the correct visas to enter your intended destination(s). Make sure you have the required proof of any vaccinations so you can easily produce them while traveling overseas.
