Why hire a car in Marrakech?

A fabled destination, Marrakesh is one of the most visited cities in Morocco for a good reason. In addition to plenty of historical landmarks and atmosphere, Marrakesh can also serve as a gateway to the nearby Berber villages and the stunning Atlas mountains.

Marrakech

One-way Car Hire in Marrakech

The most popular one-way car hire options for pick up in Marrakech and drop off in another city include:

  • From Marrakech to Fez - 380 offers from £ 25.71 per day
  • From Marrakech to Tangier - 590 offers from £ 25.71 per day
  • From Marrakech to Rabat - 521 offers from £ 16.89 per day
  • From Marrakech to Agadir - 371 offers from £ 24.73 per day
  • From Marrakech to Casablanca - 623 offers from £ 16.89 per day

Top ways to enter Marrakech

  • Marrakesh Airport. One of the busiest in the country, Marrakesh Airport has flights by more than 20 airlines, providing flights to and from destinations across North Africa, Europe, and the Middle East. The airport is west of the city centre, with the drive taking about 20 minutes. Other international airports within a three-hour drive from Marrakesh include Casablanca Airport (by far the busiest in the country) and Essaouira Airport

Top destinations and activities

  • Djemaa El-Fna. Visiting the central square of Marrakesh is one of the most magical experiences one can have in Morocco. Exciting to visit at any hour, but especially in evenings after dark, it is known for its endless market stalls, snake charmers, winding side streets, and an atmosphere like no other place.
  • Dar Si Saïd Museum. Known for the castle in which it is located and the beautiful gardens that surround it, Dar Si Saïd is a local crafts museum — carpets, wooden sculptures, and even traditional musical instruments are on display, all originating from Marrakesh and the surrounding region.
  • El Badi Palace. An impressive palatial complex that was built in the 16th century, then destroyed, and then partially restored, El Badi is one of the most interesting places to visit in Marrakesh. Known for its impressive courtyard, the palace is now also home to the Marrakesh Museum for Photography and Visual Arts. Do keep in mind that the complex and museum are only open until 17:00 (or 5 p.m.).

Traffic and parking

  • 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 in some big cities, and in the 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.
  • Proof of insurance and the car’s documentation need to be in the car whenever you’re driving.
  • When driving, 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 (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 travelling along those will be much slower, the views are usually much more scenic.

Ideas for day trips

  • Ourika Valley. Situated on the foothills of the Atlas Mountains, the Ourika Valley (named after a river that runs through it) is home to a number of Berber villages. Although traditional in many ways, the inhabitants of the region are now used to tourists and there are many services catering to the visitors, such as the Argan Tree Oil cooperative of local women which produces different kinds of cosmetics and foodstuffs, as well as, naturally, the local markets. The drive from Marrakesh takes only about an hour.
  • Essaouira. Once favoured by no others than Jimi Hendrix and Cat Stevens, the coastal city of Essaouira retains something of its free spirit. Known for the distinctively blue hue of its tiles, doors, and even fishing boats at the local harbour, its walled old city (medina) is one of the most picturesque in the country. The drive from Marrakesh takes less than three hours.

Most popular cars

The most popular car for hire in Marrakesh is the Dacia Sandero, followed by the Renault Logan and the Dacia Logan. The most popular car hire types are economy, compact, and standard. A smaller car is fine for exploring the city, but you might want to hire a more powerful vehicle if you plan to travel to the Atlas Mountains or towards Ouarzazate.

We has a great experience. While driving, we stopped at different places on the road to take pictures. We were independent and had the freedom to stop at places of our choices. Even we stopped at sudden decisions.

Morocco is an amazing place, wonderful people, unbelievable scenery and interesting history. Food was great but beer and wine can be expensive although this was not unexpected. Highlights were exploring Marrakesh, sunsets and sunrises in the desert and the beaches and Medina in Essaouira.

We drove from Marrakesh to Tangier across a dozen of towns and villages and we never had any problem with the car. My advice is to take your time, take it easy and enjoy the scenery. People are very helpful when you ask.

Budget was easy and fair. I had such a great experience renting from them in Marrakech. The car was a fairly new fiat 500 automatic that took me over 2500km without any issues. Car was well maintained and although I scratched the car I wasn't charged a penny which is very fair and kind. Thanks for a great trip.
