Health and formalities
Travellers should have a good physical shape and be used to travelling by motorbike for several days.This trip is an Adventure by motorbike to Morocco, therefore the rhythm and the routes requires endurance.
Passport, Visa, International Motor Insurance Card System and required documentation:
The passport is required to travel to Morocco and it mustn’t expire in the previous six months to the planned date of the return. In that case, you must renew it before the trip. Europeans do not need a visa.
The International Motor Insurance Card System to get in Morocco, in case you don’t have it or in case it is expired, customs service won’t allow the entrance of the motorbike in Morocco. The International Motor Insurance Card System is the international policy and it is normally facilitated with the ordinary policy.
Vehicles should have ITV in force.
The vehicle’s documentation should have the name of the person who is travelling with it. Sometimes there can be problems if it is not the same, but the Moroccan authorities can be suspicious and they avoid the entrance of vehicles that could be illegally sold in the country. In case the vehicle has the name of another owner, an authorisation and a photocopy of the ID card to legalize the authorisation will be necessary.
One of the most important sources of income of the Alaouite country is the tourism, currently one of the government goals is to become a major tourist power, oriented to European people above all. This is why the tourist is going to be quite pampered by the authorities, who will look out his welfare. The same occurs with the trade and people in general.
Nonetheless, it is not convenient to relax with the security measure that we usually take when we travel to any part of the world.
Motorbikes will spend the night in enclosed areas, either in the hotel or under a security guard hired by the agency. It does not involve Ruta Cero Tours assuming any responsibilities in case any robbery is produced.
It has to be taken into account that Morocco has a difference of 2 hours of time regarding the Peninsula.
The official currency of Morocco is the Moroccan Dirham, whose change usually is 1€= 11 Dirham approximately.
Automatic teller machines are very common in the cities, not the case of rural areas.
We recommend you to take some Dirham before crossing the border in order not to lose much time when we cross it.
Under no circumstances the organisation will be responsible for breakdowns or incidents during the trip. But at all times, it will be tried to look for a solution to solve the any problem rising during the trip. The mechanic will do everything possible to resolve incidents in the vehicles.
In case the possible breakdowns can’t be solved, the motorbike will be carried in the organisation’s vehicles and the drive will be able to keep doing the rest of the trip in a support vehicle.
