The latest on Morocco

As there are government restrictions in place for flights in and out of Morocco, we have cancelled all Morocco holidays departing on or before Thursday 10 September 2020. If you’re affected by this, you’ll be able to cancel and receive a full cash refund, or amend your holiday and receive a re-booking incentive.

First Choice holidays to Morocco are likely to start up again soon

Once the government advice changes, you’ll be able to go on holiday to Morocco with First Choice again. You’ll find everything you need to know about your holiday right here, from social distancing to face masks. There’s no doubt your getaway will be a little different, as we all get used to the new normal. But, here at First Choice, we’re working our flip flops off to make sure you still have a fantastic time. It’s all part of our Holiday Promise, which is designed to give you complete peace of mind.

We’ve got your back

COVID Cover*, which you can use as an add-on to your usual travel insurance, is included as standard on all 2020 First Choice holidays. It means you can change your booking if you get COVID-19 before your holiday – for free. A Holiday Guarantee insurance policy is also part of the package. This sorts you out for medical assistance abroad, testing costs and a flight home for treatment if you need it. *T&Cs apply.

On your flight and at your hotel

Flights for most First Choice holidays are with TUI, our sister company. They’ve got a heap of new measures in place to keep you safe. We’re talking regular deep-cleaning, online check-in and rules around face masks. We’re keeping a close eye on our hotels, too, to make sure they’re squeaky-clean and properly prepped before re-opening their doors. Find out more about changes to flights, hotels and transfers here. And, take a peep at our FAQs, for more info on the likes of hotel pools, entertainment and restaurants.
