Question Just arrived in Morocco

I am touring on my 90s fireblade and this is the first time I have ridden beyond Europe on my own bike. I forgot to get insurance on my way in. Does anyone know how I go about sorting it out?
Also I am in chefchaouen and have been charged 30 Euros for a night in an hotel, seems a lot I am sure we paid about five pounds a night when I went to Marrakech a couple of years ago. Would appreciate advice on what I should be paying and any good places people know of in the area.
It has been an amazing day, been on the road for a month and this has been one of the best days so far

I've just copied and pasted these from earlier posts, you could also try the camping, they have rooms. I'm sure others more knowledgeable will be along..........

Insurance;
Assurance Agents Generaux D Dans La Ville Chefchaouen : Annuaire des professionnels et bonnes adresses - Les Pages Jaunes du Maroc


Chefchaouen;
Hotel Andaluz: 120 DH for 2 pers. Splendid view on the roof terrace ( 2 rooms only)on mountains and medina. Friendly staff and you can use the kitchen to cook and make tea. Hot water and clean showers and toilets.


DON'T: Pension Castellana: our laptops have been stolen from the locked bedroom; no traces of burglary, so they used a key. As the pension has no locked and safe deposit the only place you can leave your stuff is your room. Owner denied any responsibility and declared to the police that he suspected us to have taken them ourselves and try to defraud. Luckily that the friendly policemen spoke both english and french and told us the whole story after the owner of the pension has been send away.


Hotel chams, in the middle of the old medina, close to the main place/square, nicely decorated and clean, 180dh for two, no breakfast


Chefchaouen.......Dar Gabriel ( superb location & friendly)
