Ouarzazate Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Ouarzazate Airport is a small airport in the Saharan desert of Morocco. It can be reached from France or by connecting through Casablanca or Marrakech. Though Ouarzazate is the largest town in the Moroccan part of the Sahara, there is not all that much in the city to be seen. Most travel to the city for the sights in the surrounding area. 

For example, the airport is also the closest to the Dades Gorges, stunning gorges that you can drive through on narrow roads. The Atlas Studios, the filming set of many famous movies, is also a popular reason tourists flock to the city. It is actually around 4km outside of it, though. Therefore, it is unsurprising that most visitors to the area rent a car to reach the sights they come for. 

Top international routes

  • Paris-Orly
  • Bordeaux
  • Marseille

Main airlines

Royal Air Maroc, Morocco’s flag carrier, and its subsidiary Royal Air Maroc Express provide service to Paris, Casablanca, Marrakech, and Zagora, a small town further into the desert. Ryanair flies to and from the French cities of Bordeaux and Marseille.

Terminals

As one can imagine given the location, there is only one small terminal at the airport.

Location

As Ouarzazate is a small town, the airport is located almost in the center of it. It should not take more than ten minutes to reach any part of the town. Of course, most of the sites are in the surrounding area and not the town itself.

Most popular types of rental car

  • Station wagons - from $21 per day
  • Large cars - from $63 per day
  • Medium cars - from $33 per day
  • Premium cars - from $99 per day
  • Small cars - from $28 per day

Car rental desks

AirCar, Avis, Europcar, and Keddy all have desks inside the terminal of the airport. All other rental companies, that is Hertz (which also services the rentals of Dollar and Thrifty) and Firefly, meet customers at the airport and take them to their respective locations.

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

There are a number of gas stations in the city of Ouarzazate, and given its size, they are all close to the airport. If coming from the west along the N9 highway, a Station Afriqua located on the traffic circle where you exit onto Avenue Moulay Abdellah to get to the airport is the most convenient station.

If approaching from the north, a Station Total is the best one to stop at. This station is located right at the start of the town. Finally, from the south, Station Winxo and a Shell Station located on the N9 are the best stations.
