Why rent a car in Rabat?

Rabat is a great place for renting a car. Having the freedom of your own wheels will let you to experience all of the city, not just its center, as well as to travel to other cities and nature areas nearby.

Rabat Car Rental

Top ways to enter Rabat

  • Rabat Airport: Located just northeast of the city center, Rabat–Salé Airport is served by both large airlines like Etihad Airways and Air France and low-cost carriers like Ryanair.
  • Casablanca Airport: The largest airport in Morocco (and one of the busiest in the whole of Africa) is just 100 km (62 mi) from Rabat, so flying to Casablanca is another great way to reach the capital city. 
  • Fez Airport: About two hours drive east of Rabat, Fez Airport offers flights to and from destinations in countries like Spain, United Kingdom, France, and others.
  • By rail: If you’re arriving in Fez by train, you can conveniently pick up your rental car at Agdal Railway Station or Medina Railway Station

Useful city facts

  • Rabat has a Mediterranean climate with warm and very dry summers that last from June to September. The winters are mild, with temperature rarely dropping below 10 °C  (50 °F).
  • Despite being only the seventh most populous city in Morocco, Rabat is the capital of the country. It replaced Fez as a capital in 1912. Rabat is the primary residence of the royal family of Morocco.

Top destinations and activities

  1. Kasbah of the Oudaias. The oldest part of the capital city, the fortress of the Oudaias (or Udayas) was first built in the 12th century by the Almohad Caliphate. You can get lost in its cute labyrinthine streets, visit the beautiful Andalusian Gardens, or enjoy the view of the nearby Atlantic Ocean.
  2. Chellah. First founded by Carthaginians more than 2000 years ago and later ruled by Romans and Moroccans, in this old city you can learn about the rich history of Rabat in one place. During more recent times, an great number of bird species have found home here, including a stork nest on the top of an old minaret.
  3. Rabat Zoo. Home to different species of animals from Morocco, Sahara, and the rest of Africa, Rabat Zoo tries to provide them with homes that are similar to their natural habitats, be they mountains, desert, or rain forest.

Traffic and parking tips

  • Unless specifically indicated otherwise, the speed limits are 120 km/h on motorways (autoroutes), 100 km/h on roads outside urban cities that are not motorways, and 60 km/h within populated areas.
  • Even inside some big cities, and in the most smaller towns and villages, there are no special lanes for cyclists or sometimes even pavements for pedestrians. In those cases, you’ll be sharing a road with them, so be extra careful.
  • Road signs are written in both Arabic and French. If you don’t know either of these languages, it’s good to learn at least the main terms in one of them before renting a car.
  • The legal alcohol limit is 0.00% for both experienced and novice drivers. Drunk driving can lead to large fines and even jail time or deportation.
  • The insurance and car documentation needs to be in the car whenever you’re driving.
  • If you’re the driver, you need to have your passport or ID card with you at all times.
  • The nation-wide emergency police number is 19 and the nation-wide ambulance and fire safety department number is 15.

Toll roads

A toll needs to be paid for using most of Morocco’s motorways or autoroutes. All of the toll roads in Morocco are administered by the state-owned company Autoroutes du Maroc (ADM). 

Morocco uses a “closed system” for its toll roads, meaning that there is a toll booth both at the entrance and the exit of the toll road. You pay either by cash or by credit card (although some toll points might only accept cash so it’s good to have some available at all times). Make sure to keep any proof that you have paid for the toll road as police checks are frequent and fines can be hefty. The prices for using the toll roads are generally quite low.

Most of the toll roads connect the largest cities of the country. Oftentimes you can opt to use regional roads instead - while traveling along those will be much slower, the views are usually much more scenic.

Ideas for a day-trip

  • Skhirat. Just a half an hour’s drive from Rabat center, Skhirat is perhaps the most famous beach town near the capital city. Although Skhitar’s central area has become rather posh and crowded during the recent years, you can easily find more quiet spots if you drive up or down the coast.
  • Fez. Just a couple of hours drive from Rabat, Fez is one of the most famous cities of Morocco, and, indeed, North Africa. Visit its great markets or souks where skilled leather tanners still practice their craft to this day.
  • Maâmora Forest. Holding the title of the world’s largest cork oak forest, this nature reserve is home to many species of flora and fauna, and is one of the largest green areas in all of Morocco.

Most popular rental types and cars

The most popular rental cars in Morocco are the Hyundai i10, the Dacia Logan, and the Renault Clio. Most national highways are in great shape, but if you plan to drive in the Atlas Mountains or in the Sahara Desert, getting a 4x4 vehicle can be a good idea. The most popular rental car types in Morocco are Economy, Mini, and Intermediate.

Further destinations

  • Casablanca. Although not as historic as some other large cities of Morocco, the country’s largest metropolis is a fascinating place where modern lifestyle is intertwined with older traditions. 
  • Essaouira. Located on the Atlantic Coast, beautiful Essaouira has long captured the imaginations of Arab poets and Western rock stars alike. Although the title is passionately contested, it also has a strong claim for being the seafood capital of Morocco.
  • Marrakech. Timeless Morocco attracts visitors with Jemaa el-Fnaa, a square and a market in its historic medina quarter that is like the whole of Morocco in miniature. Watch street performers and snake and lizard charmers from the desert, join a local concert next to a bonfire, bargain for local crafts, and, when you’ve soaked yourself in atmosphere for good, travel further to visit the snowy peaks of the nearby Atlas Mountains.
