Car Hire Marrakech Menara  Airport Useful Information

When hiring a car at the airport, all the main international rental companies are represented in the arrivals area, together with several local ones. When you have collected your car, it is an easy 10–15-minute drive into the city.

Having collected your hire car from the airport, head into the city for a feast for the senses. Your first evening should be spent at the Djema El-Fna square, one of the world’s busiest. There at night, every square inch is packed with stalls selling wonderful spicy Moroccan food whilst entertainers sing, dance, play instruments and tell stories to anyone who is prepared to listen.During the day, the musicians are replaced with snake charmers! From there, walk to the Kouloubia Mosque whose minaret is an icon of the city. At night it is beautifully illuminated.
 

Here's a comprehensive guide for you if you're planning to hire a car from Marrakesh Airport:

Marrakesh Menara Airport (RAK):

This is one of the main international airports in Morocco, serving the city of Marrakesh and its surroundings. It handles both domestic and international flights.

Driving Regulations and Practices:

  1. Drive on the Right: Morocco follows right-hand drive.
  2. Speed Limits: In cities, the limit is generally 50 km/h; outside cities on secondary roads, it's 90 km/h; and on highways, it's 120 km/h.
  3. Seat Belts: Mandatory for all passengers.
  4. Documentation: Always carry your passport, driver's license, rental agreement, and insurance papers. An International Driving Permit (IDP) is recommended, though often not required.
  5. Alcohol: The legal blood alcohol limit is 0.02%. It's advisable to avoid drinking and driving.
  6. Roundabouts: Cars inside the roundabout typically have the right of way, but caution is advised as this isn't always observed.

Emergency Services:

  • General Emergency Number: 19
  • Police: 19
  • Ambulance: 15
  • Fire: 15

It's essential to familiarize yourself with these numbers, especially when driving in a foreign country.

Fuel:

  • Petrol stations are relatively frequent in and around cities and on major highways.
  • Keep some cash (Moroccan Dirhams) as not every petrol station will accept credit cards, especially in rural areas.
  • Fuel is reasonably priced in Morocco compared to many Western countries.

Distances to Main Cities:

  1. Casablanca: Approx. 240 km via A7. Around 2.5 - 3 hours' drive.
  2. Essaouira: Approx. 185 km via R207. Roughly 2.5 hours' drive.
  3. Agadir: Approx. 250 km via N8 and A7. Around 3 - 3.5 hours' drive.
  4. Fez: Approx. 530 km via A7 and N8. About 5.5 - 6 hours' drive.

Sightseeing and Distances:

  1. Medina of Marrakesh: Just around 6 km from the airport. Don't miss the bustling Jemaa el-Fnaa square, especially in the evening.
  2. Saadian Tombs: Located within Marrakesh, around 7 km from the airport.
  3. Majorelle Garden: Around 7 km from the airport, it's a tranquil garden in the heart of Marrakesh.
  4. Ouzoud Waterfalls: Approx. 160 km from Marrakesh. It's a beautiful natural site with waterfalls cascading from heights of up to 110m.
  5. Ait Benhaddou: A UNESCO World Heritage site, this is around 190 km from Marrakesh. It's a striking clay city that has been the backdrop for numerous films.

Tips:

  • Navigation: A GPS or smartphone with maps (like Google Maps or Maps.me) is invaluable.
  • Parking: In many cities, when you park on the street, a guardian ("gardien") might offer to watch your car for a small fee.
  • Safety: Avoid driving at night outside of major cities as the roads may not be well-lit, and obstacles, such as animals or pedestrians, can be unpredictable.

Driving in Morocco offers an immersive way to experience the country's diverse landscapes and cultures. Always prioritize safety, remain patient, and enjoy the journey!
