Our transfer vehicle leaves the airport at the time specified in our correspondence.

Holidays as advertised on our website are low risk with regard to crime and you will be partly exploring locations on your own. Travel photography is exciting but also requires being aware of your surroundings. In the interests of safety you should undertake to follow the advice of the instructor, comply with any local codes of conduct, follow the country code and act sensibly and prudently at all times.  Local codes of conduct will be made clear to you upon arrival and relate to dress and photography of people. Single women are safe to explore alone.  It’s more safe then many UK towns, however you should still act sensibly. You also agree to indemnify us from all loss and/or damage arising from any act of default on your part relating to an illegal act or offence we shall cease to have any responsibility to or for you.

It is your responsibility to ensure that your passport and vaccinations are up to date:

Non EU residents should check visa requirements with their consulate, and obtain one if necessary. Residents of the United Kingdom do not require a visa but should have a full 10 year British passport with at least 6 months remaining from the date of your return home. Typhoid and Hepatitis A are recommended for travel to Morocco.
