    We found it is better going anti clock wise in Morocco.
    Starting from Asillah ...
    Going beginning of January ie new year for 90 days .... .
    Then to Gibraltar and decide East or West depending on the weather forcast

    Yes agree. Even in Morocco it can get cold in the winter months, especially in the mountains and on the eastern plateau. Eastern side will be better the later you do it.

    Just a heads up for everybody thinking of going this winter, a new thread Morocco 2019 has now been started.

    Might work out cheaper to change company. You can buy ins at the port but for a scooter it was very expensive around £25 / £35 a week. ..

    Saga has given us a free green card so far.

    I definitely agree with routing, I think its better to go down the west coast and then back up the middle.

    @SUGGY are you the guy with the spin drier?

    My wife was exactly the same but once she gets there give her a few days and she'll wonder what was she worried about.

    I reckon buying insurance at the port wouldn't be worth the paper (if any) that it's printed on'. just saying.

    Hi everyone, can anyone tell me if there has been a new thread started yet for January 2019 and where am I likely to find it, I noticed on the 2018 Morocco thread that one had started but I tried but couldn't find it. Thanks for any help. Gwyntaxi.

    Phoned Safeguard today. Luckily we sneaked our renewal before the changes, so they're sending us the green card.:D
    Dog went for his titre test today. Fingers crossed now for a good result.;)

    It is looking like if you do not go to Morocco early 2019 you may not be going in 2020 ,
