How Does Tipping Work in Morocco?

by Nancy Lauer No comments

Because tourism is such a large part of Morocco’s economy, tipping is regular practice in the country.

Tipping Caddy
To alleviate search for small change, we offer a tipping caddy. You can pay into the caddy and your local host will use those funds to pay the hotel, city guide, camel guide, and luggage porters for you. The tipping caddy doesn’t include the tip for your local host. We leave that up to you at the close of the tour. If interested in this service, just ask at the time of booking.

Upon booking, we will provide you with some good rules of thumb for tipping.

As a note, it’s expected practice to tip the “keeper of the bathroom” around 2 dirhams when using the facilities. However, if the bathroom is not clean or stocked with toilet paper, do not feel you need to pay a tip.


I grew up in the American Midwest and consider Morocco my second home. I am a former classroom teacher as well as a mental health practitioner. In addition to running Open Doors Morocco, I work with American and international educational publishers. I am the first to tell you that a trip to Morocco is an amazing life transforming experience.
