Thanks guys. We are not impressed with hotels on the Spanish side .... and the idea was to get an early start on the Morocco side for a change .... last time the "early" ferry was late and we didn't get on the road until lunchtime!

Fuel costs

Hi all,

Fuel today in Erfoud is 7.42Dh/lt for gasoil and 10.45 for unleaded. Yesterday in Ceuta it was 0.98 euro and 1.06 respectively.

Getting through the border is the same as ever - no bank or insurance office and now the penpushers in the offices are asking for cadeaux.

Happy trails,

Jojo

Do you mean the officials with uniforms?

BTW, where do you change money? Because if going directly to the south there is no village with bank until you reach the motorway which has tolls (unless you enter Fnideq). Can tolls be paid in euros?

There is an offical exchange place just after the border on the main road around N35 50.961 W5 21.178

I never got asked for cadeaux from any officials either in or out a few weeks ago, maybe it's the luck of the draw or they thought I looked tight.

In fact both crossings were far more easy than last year, on the way out I was not even approached by a tout.
