FarahL replied to the thread rent in Rabat on low salary on the Morocco forum on December 18, 2014:
RubyCalle initially posted:
I am trying to research if there is such a thing as a one bedroom or studio apartment for rent in a safe area of Rabat. I have been offered 27,000MAD which doesn't seem to be enough to rent a safe and decent apartment. Can any Moroccan give me info on actual rental prices long term (1 year) in Rabat?? many thanks !!
FarahL replied on December 18, 2014 with:
Hi Ruby, Just to give you some context, the annual average salary in Morocco is £1500 A YEAR... Accommodation quality varies dramatically in Morocco - really, unless you have someone you trust who can check it out for you, I would strongly advise that you do not agree to a long term contract/payment regime until you have PERSONALLY viewed the apartment and the area in which it is situated. The other thing that is important to note is that Rabat is a city built on 2 sides of a river - and getting across the river is a nightmare in terms of traffic - so try to ensure that your workplace & living accommodation are both on the same side! Finally, Rabat has some lovely Art Deco areas which are very characterful & where apartment size can be more generous - but sometimes at the expense of up to date plumbing... Good Luck!

Was that 27,000 MAD for a year?If you were told that figure for a month you really need to wise up quickly.You can look in any estate agent and see the prices quoted to give you an idea where to start.Maybe you could try the expat community where you will not be regarded as an ATM machine apart from a few bad apples.Good luck with your search.

AustinTX initially posted:
Hi can someone advice on what car I can buy in USA and take to Morroco, and be able to sell at the end of 3year contract.
AustinTX replied most recently with:
Is the Subaru forrester a popular in Morroco? How about the Honda CR-V? Or the Toyota RAV4? Which one is more popular?
AustinTX replied most recently with:
Thank you, your response has been very helpful. My plan was to buy a new 4x4 SUV. I have not decided on what to buy, but I was considering a Toyota 4Runner (landcruiser Prado), but I am not sure yet. I currently own an Toyota RAV4 2012, that I might be able to sell before heading to Morroco. Thank you for your help, and appreciate any further advice that you can give me.

kwelbi replied to the thread Buying a second hand motorcycle in Morocco on the Morocco forum:
Sibow initially posted:
Hi I am thinking about flying to Marakesh, buying a motorcycle to ride back to the UK. I'm looking for a little adventure! Could anyone point me in the right direction. I have found lots of scooters for sale but I really want something with a bit more that 50cc. Any help very much appreciated. Plan B would be to ride my current bike to Marakesh and then ship it back home. I haven't got the time to do a return trip. Any contacts in the export business that could handle a motorcycle would be great. Thanks in advance. Si
kwelbi replied most recently with:
Hi,if you were to buy a Moroccan registered motorcycle over 50cc. you would need a residents card to complete the paperwork and you would then need to obtain a Moroccan driving licence.So forget about it.You can bring in your own bike for 6 months per year and use it on your foreign licence.There is a ferry from Sete in the south of France to Nador or Tangier which you could transport your bike down on saving riding across Spain.If you bring your bike don't forget the registration document and appropiate insurance otherwise you will have to buy insurance at the port of entry.

does any one know how much money in euros I can take out of morocco at any one time, or where I can get official currency exchange details. I have bank statements with money coming into the country.
Karim21 replied most recently with:
Whatever you do dont exchange money at the airport. Their currency rate is horrible. Compare different rates with different banks.
