Why rent a car in Marrakech?

Marrakesh is a great city to experience by car. Having the freedom of your own wheels will let you see this wide city and to visit attractions inside it and just outside the city borders, as well as to travel to other nearby destinations like the Atlas Mountains. 

Marrakech Car Rental

Top ways to enter Marrakech

  • Marrakesh Airport: Located just outside the city proper and second busiest in Morocco, Marrakesh Menara Airport serves flights to and from a wide array of destinations in North Africa, Middle East, and Europe. 
  • Ouarzazate Airport: Serving the mountainous and historic city of Ouarzazate, this small and cozy airport is three to four hours drive from Marrakesh.
  • Essaouira Airport: Right on the Atlantic Coast and about two hours drive from Marrakesh, Essaouira Airport serves flights to and from Germany, France, and Belgium.
  • Agadir Airport: Located in another coastal city, but further down south, Agadir Airport is about three hours drive from Marrakesh.

Useful city facts

  • Marrakesh enjoys a hot semi-arid climate. Summers are very dry and hot, with temperature often exceeding even 35 °C  (95 °F). The winters, on the other hand, can get quite wet cool, especially in the months of December and January.
  • Together with neighboring Safi and a number of other provinces, Marrakesh makes up the Marrakesh-Safi Region that is home to more than 4.5 million people.

Top destinations and activities

  1. Djemaa el-Fnaa. Perhaps the most famous bazaar in the whole Arab World, Djemaa el-Fnaa is, for many, the number one attraction in the whole of Morocco. Traditional singers and drummers, snake-charmers, and storytellers will fight for your attention, tattoo artists will be ready to give you a new henna right on the street, and local craftsmen will proudly show their carpets, lamps, and jewellery. It’s a place that’s not to be missed.
  2. Majorelle Gardens and the Berber Museum. Should you ever go tired of the crazy energy of Djemaa el-Fnaa, beautiful Majorelle Gardens that are famous for their wide variety of cactus species are a place for a walk, picnic, and long relaxed conversations with new-made friends. Next to the gardens you’ll find the Berber Museum where you can learn more about the traditions and culture of the native inhabitants of Marrakesh.
  3. Bahia Palace. Although relatively young - it was built only in the 19th century - Bahia Palace is arguably one of the most unique buildings in Marrakesh. Surrounded by gardens of banana flowers and other plants and full of beautiful rooms and courtyards, it is a perfect place to explore and relax in.

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

  • Amizmiz. Located in the nearby High Atlas Mountains, the small town of Amizmiz hosts one of the largest souks in the region every Tuesday, but even if you come on another day, it is still a great place to appreciate the local atmosphere, meet the locals, and enjoy the views of the nearby peaks.
  • Ourika Valley. Just 40 minutes drive from Marrakesh, beautiful Ourika Valley has become a bit touristy during the last few years, but should still be on anyone’s list thanks to its waterfalls, long hiking paths, and different Argan oil products made by local women.
  • Oukaimeden. Located more than 3000 meters (9840 feet) above the sea level, Oukaimeden is arguably the best ski resort in the whole North Africa. Very near is Jebel Toubkal, the highest peak in the Atlas Mountains.

Most popular rental types and cars

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

Further destinations

  • Essaouira. This charming beach city is just three hours drive west of Marrakesh. Local street performers will claim to be sons of Jimi Hendrix (who once indeed favored visiting the place) while cooks of local seafood will leave you breathless. 
  • Taghazout. A serene beach town and a surfer’s paradise, cozy Taghazout (near the much larger city of Agadir) offers the possibility to hit the waves year-round. From here, it’s also easy to visit the nearby Paradise Valley with its gorges and waterfalls.
  • Ouarzazate. Located east of Marrakesh and high in the mountains, Ouarzazate is similar to Marrakesh in some ways, but is more tranquil and traditional. The dry desert landscapes that surround it will make you feel like you’re on another planet.

How can I save money on my rental car?

These are the things to keep in mind to get a good rental car deal in Marrakesh:

  • Compare rates of different rental car providers
  • Book your rental car well in advance
  • Plan your route before you go
  • Know your fuel and mileage requirements
  • Visit on the month when the rental prices are the cheapest. According to our data, visiting Marrakesh is the cheapest in October when renting a car is about 45% cheaper than the yearly average and about 67% cheaper than renting a car in May.

Well best transport if u think to move around
June 14, 2019
Driving in and around Marrakech is tricky even with lots of regional driving experience. Traffic is heavy, driving is very erratic and road signals and practices are not clear. Driving in the rural and mountain areas is much easier as there is limited traffic though some of the roads are poor.
June 12, 2019
Nice to have a car to buzz around the coast.
June 10, 2019
Marrakesh is great place to visit
April 16, 2019
Yes if you are very confident and experienced driver. Which I am. So I will be Hiring again when I return
March 16, 2019
very congested city, few road rules need to be confident in your ability
February 24, 2019
Driving in Africa is not easy but Moroccan roads - except few busy roads and cities - are mostly and in a good condition. Nevertheless I would recommend it only to the experienced driver.
February 14, 2019
No need to rent GPS, it is hard to find the location! Don’t know what happen, the Google map only shows the preview format in Morocco! Instead, I would recommend to use the app called “WAZE”. It’s free, easy to control and very user friendly.
January 7, 2019
driving is probably nothing for novice drivers or the faint hearted. its kind of exciting at times
January 2, 2019
traffic in Marrakesh is really hurry.rent the car everywhere in the inner city will makes some unexperiences drivers crazy can be easyer rent the car directly at the airport driving thru all the marocco is quiet and easy,many gas stations,good quality of the roads,keep the speed limit,its strictly watch by police. i can recomend trip from Marrakesh to Ourzazatte thru the main road over the Atlas mountains.
November 4, 2018
You have to be very experienced driver to avoid all dangers on the road and deal with extreme weather conditions.
October 1, 2018
If you driving outside the Medina, then renting a car is no problem. If you're inside the Medina, I would recommend only very confident drivers with small cars do this.
September 20, 2018
We didn't drive in Marrakesh but we did drive around Morocco and had a lot of fun. Having your own car is a great way to see the country.
