News Travel Tourism: From Marrakech to the Atlas Seto Updates Recommendations for Tour Operators Following Earthquake
In the wake of the recent earthquake in Morocco, the Union of Tour-Operating Companies (Seto) has revised its guidelines for travel operators. Seto, comprising 70 prominent French tour operators, most of whom feature Morocco in their programs, emphasizes that all hotel, tourism, and airport facilities in Marrakech are fully operational.
As a result, ongoing programs for clients currently residing in Marrakech's hotels will continue uninterrupted, as per Seto's announcement.
Regarding trips to Marrakech, the country's tourism hub, the resumption of departures is scheduled for Tuesday, September 19, with potential adjustments to excursions.
Adapting Itineraries in the Atlas Mountains For tours and excursions in the Atlas Mountains, Seto advises tour operators to modify their itineraries as necessary. If such adjustments prove impractical, postponement is recommended.
Seto also reminds that while offering rescheduling and/or credits is possible, clients have the right to decline these options, in which case the Tourism Code applies.
The earthquake, which struck Morocco on September 8, resulted in approximately 3,000 casualties and extensive damage.
