Book Your Flight
Use Skyscanner to find the best airfare prices. This is our favorite because it is an aggregate with the biggest reach and it searches websites and airlines around the globe so you always know you are getting the best deal.
 
Book Your Accommodation
Use Booking.com to find the best deals on hotels and guesthouses. Airbnb is also a great choice for accommodation in Morocco. You choose from a private room in someone’s house, an entire apartment, a condominium, or a riad. If you have not used Airbnb, it’s a great alternative for connecting with homeowners who rent out their homes or apartments. If you’re new to Airbnb, get up to $65 off your first stay!
 
Book a Tour
If you have limited travel time, a small group tour is the best way to experience a destination. Check out our list of travel club trips and trusted tour operators for small group tours. These companies have been verified to practice sustainable travel so you know that you’ll be experiencing the world responsibly. 
 
Book an Experience
Looking for fun things to do when you get to your destination? Check out Viator and GetYourGuide for a variety of tours and experiences.
 
Don’t Forget Travel Insurance
Travel insurance will protect you in case of illness, injury, theft, and cancellations. It’s protection in case anything goes wrong. Below are our recommended companies that offer the best service and value:

TRAVEL REPORTS

Most Governments maintain websites dedicated to providing their citizens with the most up-to-date travel information. The websites below publish online travel reports containing the most recent news as well as background information on every country.

PASSPORT & VISAS

U.S. citizens will require a passport, valid for at least six months from the date of departure, for our international tours. Trips to certain countries may require a visa as well. See the Passport and Visa Requirements section of the detailed itinerary document for your tour to determine the exact requirements. If you need a visa, please contact the country’s consulate office nearest to you.

Be sure to check the expiration date and physical condition of your passport and verify the travel document requirements with the consulates of the countries you are planning to visit during your trip.

As of January 31, 2008, a valid passport is required for all U.S. citizens (including infants and children) traveling by air, land or sea to and from Canada, Mexico, Central, and South America, Bermuda and the Caribbean (excluding Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands).

International guests who plan to take one of our trips in the U.S. will need a passport and visitors from certain countries may need a visa as well. Please discuss this with us at the time of booking.
