Travel expert suggests tipping can 'make life a lot easier'
It is always important to understand the culture and climate of a destination before travelling there. With this in mind, a travel expert at Lonely Planet has suggested that people on solo holidays to Morocco tip more than they would at home.
Stefanie Di Trocchio, a commissioning editor for the travel and tourism organisation, noted that it is part of the culture to give a bit of change to anyone that helps you out.
"Tipping is an integral part of Moroccan life, and a few dirham for a service willingly rendered can make life a lot easier," she noted on the Lonely Planet website.
"Tipping between five per cent and ten per cent of a restaurant bill is appropriate. Also tip taxis, guides and small boys who help you find your way out of the complex maze of streets in the old parts of town."
Currently (on June 21st), one British pound is equivalent to 12.8 Moroccan dirham, while a single dirham is worth around seven pence.
