if the question is posed here it is to have answers from the community that has the experience of Morocco on the ground in fact. It is also one of the reasons of existence of the community, then answers who see or who can .
Sorry for my very bad english. …
My experience at Marrackech with the REVOLUT, was fantastic.
First I started to make the change a few days before with a favorable exchange rate.
Arrived at the airport I withdraw the maximum of Moroccan Dirham +/- 200 €, because I would go shopping in the Souks. Here you should only deal with cash.
On the remaining expenses I always used my REVOLUT VISA card, to pay for the Riad, the Restaurants and even the simple break for a tea. Most top establishments are managed by Europeans, here you always find atm for payments.
As I traveled with family and friends, we opted for the system to pay all the expenses with the REVOLUT card and they paid me in cash that they exchanged at the airport.
In the end the experience was very good and the use of this card helps in a lot with other currencies. I was even surprised at the initial exchange rate from EUR to MAD, which gave me a few more Dirham than expected.
Any other question related to my experience is just ask.
I always used the Moroccan Dirham as currency. I was never asked for a choice because I converted all my money into the REVOLUT for Moroccan Dirham.
If he had another active currency on the card, he might have asked.
I prefer to always think of their currency, so I do not always make conversions, so I memorized “10 Dirham = 1 Euro” to make it easier.
My conversion rate from EUR to MAD was +/- 11.10 on 28 May.
Now I expect for a rate close to 0.0910 to reverse into Euros what I still have in Dirham.
Hi, newbie to Revolut here. Sorry to hijack an old thread but I’ve just joined and am unable to start a new topic
I’m travelling to Marrakesh soon and currently have money in 3 different currencies on my Revolut Visa card as follows:
600 £ STERLING (my base currency)
1.) As soon as I land there I plan to withdraw 2,000 MAD from an ATM at the airport. Will the card know I want to withdraw MAD and will there be any kind of fee associated with the withdrawal?
2.) The place I’m staying at in Marrakesh is going to take payment for my stay in Euros (amount is a fraction under 400 Euros). So again if I use my Revolut card there, will it automatically use EURO’s to pay (without incurring any fee’s or converting £ to EUROS – seeing as the local currency of the Country where the transaction is taking place is MAD and not EUROS).
3.) For the remainder of my trip if I use my Revolut card there, should I convert STERLING to MAD and then make payment? Or just leave it as STERLING and let Revolt do the conversion to MAD?
Sorry for all the question but don’t want to end up with any nasty surprises due to human error
