Travel Tips



By Air

Emirates and Qatar Airways provide good connections out of India and on certain days Etihad Airways has good connections into Casablanca.

By Road

If you choose to travel by coach, the Compagnie de Transport Marocains (CTM) and other private companies offer comfort and convenience for a pleasant journey.

Getting Around In Towns

Within cities, choose from taxis, buses and trams (in Casablanca and Rabat). Rates are regulated and all taxis have meters. For a quaint ride, hop aboard a horse-drawn carriage in Marrakesh or Taroudant.

If you decide to rent a car, there are plenty of agencies at your disposal. Cars drive on the right and most vehicles have manual transmissions. Road signs are in French and Arabic. There are national highways that run north-south to serve all of Morocco.

  • Women need to dress appropriately.
  • Moroccan cab drivers rarely "have change" when you need it. To avoid overpaying, keep your coins.
  • To stay on the safe side, drink bottled water and even use it to brush your teeth.
  • Don't expect bathrooms to have toilet paper. Be prepared with your own and also have some hand sanitizer available. A lot of public restrooms will have a small fee as well so if you see an attendant be sure to ask before using the bathroom.
