Rabat Car Rental Mini Guide

Rabat is the bustling capital of the country and has lots for the visitor, especially those with a hire car. The city’s Kasbah is quite stunning, especially at sunset when the sun turns the walls a fiery red. Entering the Kasbah, you will come to the city’s old quarter with narrow paved streets, barely wide enough for a person to walk through, and colourful marketplaces full of the products of Morocco. From there, head to the Royal Palace. It is heavily guarded, and entry is not allowed but you can look through the gates and marvel at the beauty inside.
 

Driving in Rabat, the capital of Morocco, can be an interesting way to explore the city and its surroundings. Here's what you should be aware of when driving in Rabat and some places to visit:

Driving Conditions:

  • Roads: The road infrastructure in Rabat is generally well maintained, and major roads are in good condition. However, some older parts of the city may have narrower streets.

  • Traffic: Traffic in Rabat can be busy, especially during rush hours. Be prepared for congestion, and drivers may display a variety of behaviors, so drive defensively.

  • Safety: Rabat has its share of traffic-related safety concerns. Be cautious at intersections, and adhere to traffic rules. Be aware of pedestrians, as they may cross roads in unexpected places.

Type of Vehicle:

  • Choose a vehicle that suits your needs and preferences. Compact or mid-sized cars are suitable for city driving.  We also offer SUVs or larger vehicles for more comfortable travel if you plan to explore beyond the city.

Places to Visit:

  1. Hassan Tower and Mausoleum of Mohammed V: These historic landmarks are located near the Kasbah of the Udayas. The Hassan Tower is an unfinished minaret, and the mausoleum is the final resting place of King Mohammed V and his sons.

  2. Kasbah of the Udayas (Kasbah des Oudaias): A historic neighborhood with narrow streets, blue and white buildings, and a charming atmosphere. The Andalusian Gardens are a highlight.

  3. Chellah Necropolis: An ancient Roman site with impressive ruins, gardens, and storks nesting in the area.

  4. Royal Palace of Rabat (Dar al-Makhzen): While you can't enter the palace, you can admire its magnificent gates and the beautiful exterior.

  5. Mohammed VI Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art: If you have an interest in art, this museum features a collection of contemporary Moroccan art.

  6. The Bouregreg Marina: A modern development along the riverfront with restaurants, shops, and beautiful views.

  7. Rabat Beaches: Enjoy some relaxation by visiting Rabat's sandy beaches, such as Plage de Rabat and Plage des Nations.

  8. Rabat's Souks: Explore traditional Moroccan markets, including the Souk as Sebbat, where you can shop for handicrafts, clothing, and more.

Remember that road signs in Rabat are typically in Arabic and French. A GPS or navigation app can be helpful for finding your way around the city. Additionally, while Rabat is an excellent starting point, consider exploring other Moroccan cities, such as Casablanca and Marrakech, which are easily accessible by road and offer their own unique attractions.

When driving in Rabat, prioritize safety, follow traffic rules, and be courteous to other road users. By doing so, you can make the most of your visit to this fascinating Moroccan city and its many historical and cultural landmarks.
