Any one got any plans to be in Morocco December this year.
Any idea of cost to get a motorhome over there from Spain?

Have a look on line FRS operate from Algeciras, I would always travel thru Tangier Med, no masses trying to get over the border, very civilised compared to Ceuta.

just looked 365 Euros

try viajes normandie .they were always best prices when i was going over to maroc .
actually knew juan carlos before he set the name voyages normandie .
his whole family are a great bunch .
best to go about first week in december . as late march and april can be very sandstormy over there as the spring tides and winds go by. .
mind atlantic side on europe and uk etc will be hit by the september swells and wind soon.
have a good time .

Lots of Morocco threads to read up on and will give you loads of info..
Morocco 2013, 2014,2015,2016,etc etc.. (y)

Work on €200 -220 for an open return crossing.
Insurance/ green card seems to be the big issue at present, so check that out first.

might be that your insurers are really a gibraltar based company .
might be worth dropping in to see them.
they sometimes let you have morocco free if you drop in.
very often spanish and gib give their local customers morocco as part of their normal policy. after all years ago you had to go to maroc to go or leave gibraltar.when spain closed the border.

You can buy Insurance at the border but it is only third party, done that a few times.
If you want a Sat Nav have a look at OSMAnd, it has maps for Morocco down to Street level, it runs on a smartphone or tablet and used to be free. If you wanted to download more than 10 maps you had to pay for it, used to be £2.50.
They have maps for the whole world. It does do turn by turn voice directions.

Would love to go with other Funsters. So they could lead the way as it would be our first time. We would want to go no later than mid Jan as Motorhome is due MOT mid March so need to be back in UK by then.

I would get it mot'd first, then you will be free to go as you please.

It's a little early yet but there will be a Morocco 2020 thread so keep an eye open for it. It'll be a place, firstly to provide info and let potential travellers tell of their plans etc.

Later it will act as a communications conduit for those who have taken the plunge, letting folk update on current conditions, places to see or avoid, ask for and give advice etc.

Going with someone else the first time is a good idea if you're slightly nervous but, as many will agree, it's not difficult and no harder than your first crossing of the English Channel. Agree with Jon, get it tested before you go - okay you lose a couple of months but you then have the comfort of knowing all is well and no restraints if you decide you want to stay longer - as you probably will!

Our current plans are to cross at the end of January but there are a few things we need to get sorted before we can confirm.

looking forward to the 2020 details. Please let us know if anyone is going over in December/early Jan as we'd like to tag along with someone "in the know"

Setting off to Portugal late October. First time for this as well but I'm not as nervous!
