There are automatic banking machines throughout Morocco in the vast majority of cities and most towns and even in some sahara villages. Specific kind of credit cards, such as "Visa" and Master cards are accepted at most Hotels, Restaurants and Supermarkets. You can change your money and traveler checks at all major banks, some hotels, and of course the Airport. You will notice that the cost of services and goods are quite cheaper than what you would pay for the same services and goods in your country.
As of this writing 7/29/2012, 100 usd equals 890 dirhams. What a great feeling to get a large sum of money from a little sum when you exchange your money!
