COVID-19 Update

Coronavirus Update

Here is the latest information concerning COVID-19 and renting a car on DiscoverCars.com.

We are working around the clock to keep up with the constantly-changing situation throughout the world so we can provide you with up-to-date information regarding travel restrictions, rental branch opening hours, shuttle services, safety measures, and more. Our Customer Support team is ready to assist you any time, night or day.

If seeking general travel advice, we strongly recommend consulting the guidance of your government and the World Health Organization.

Your health and safety are of the utmost importance to us.

If you do travel, we want you to be as safe as possible while doing so. Thus, we have added information in our search results letting you know which rental companies are disinfecting their vehicles to prevent the spread of the virus.

Badge

A badge is shown next to all cars that we have confirmed are disinfected between each and every renter.

Search filter

Use the filter on the left-hand side of the search results to only see vehicles that are confirmed to be thoroughly disinfected.

We understand your need for flexibility.

We’d like to tell you that we’ve become more flexible, but the truth is that we were always flexible. If you need to change the dates of your rental or you decide to travel somewhere else, you can modify your booking in the My Booking section without charge (although the rental price may change).

Airport Car Rental

Essaouira is the perfect place for those wanting to experience Morocco in a more relaxing atmosphere. The small city is a great example of a walled-city and also makes for the perfect beach getaway. With direct flights from London, Brussels, and various cities in France, the city is also easy to reach for many. Of course, a rental car is a great idea so that you can reach beaches farther away and smaller villages where you can completely get away from the crowds and experience Moroccan culture.

Main airlines

Royal Air Maroc Express, the regional brand of Royal Air Maroc, provides connections from Casablanca which can be reached from many countries. Essaouira can be reached from France with easyJet. Ryanair provides seasonal service between the airport and Brussels, London, and Marseille. Transavia France connects the airport with Paris. Finally, TUI fly Belgium provides service from Charleroi.

Terminals

Currently, there is just one terminal and it is very small. There are plans for the construction of a new terminal able to handle more passengers. When this is completed, the current terminal will be turned into a lounge. No date for completion has been announced.

Location

Essaouira Airport is located approximately 17km (11 miles) southeast of downtown Essaouira, a drive that takes roughly 20 minutes.

Car rental desks

Almost all rental companies have desks inside the airport’s terminal. You won’t have trouble finding them since the airport is quite small.

AirCar is the only rental company that does not have a rental desk at the airport. It offers a meet and greet service whereby a representative meets the customer at the airport.

Services and facilities

Essaouira Airport is a small airport and therefore does not have all of the services and facilities as a major international airport, such as Casablanca Airport, would.

Nearest gas station

The nearest gas station to the airport, a Total station, is located on the left side of the road when coming from the city. It is just before the traffic circle with National Route 1. Though it is 8km (a 9-minute drive) from the airport, there are no closer stations. If returning to the airport from the south, you will have to pass the airport and go towards the city to reach the aforementioned station, as the closest station on Route 1 to the south is almost 30km away.
