Currency: The Moroccan currency is the Dirham (Dh), which is divided into 100 centimes. Bank notes are issued in 20, 50, 100 & 200 denominations and notes and coins are inscribed in both Arabic and French. In the countryside, prices are given in riales (or reales), rather than centimes. One rial = 5 centimes, but there are no rial coins. Credit Cards: Most upmarket hotels and restaurants will accept credit cards, but smaller shops, and particularly the souk, prefer cash in local currency.
