Airport Car Hire

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 hire 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.

Car hire desks

Almost all hire 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 hire company that does not have a hire 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 petrol station

The nearest petrol 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
