Morocco is a diverse country located in North Africa just a few miles from Spain across the Strait of Gibraltar. Travelling around the country is a simple and pleasurable experience when you rent a car in Morocco. Take to the road and discover delights such as the High Atlas Mountains and the beaches of Essaouira at your own pace with a rental car before exploring the vibrant cities of Marrakesh and Casablanca.

It's your choice: Where to go in Morocco?

Located in northern Africa, Morocco is a country bursting with history, culture, pulsating cities and glorious beaches. International flights connecting Europe with Morocco are plentiful and while you can fly into a number of airports, most visitors arrive in either Marrakesh Menara Airport or Casablanca's Mohammed V International Airport. Marrakesh is the cultural heartland of Morocco and from here you can easily reach both the undulating High Atlas Mountains and the sweeping beaches of Essaouira on the country's extensive Atlantic coastline. When you rent a car in Morocco, another option is to take the passenger ferry from southern Spain and cross into Morocco by sea. There are regular services across the Strait of Gibraltar, connecting Europe with Mediterranean Morocco. Upon arrival in Morocco rent a car and drive on the well-maintained roads through cities such as Fes and Casablanca before reaching Marrakesh and catching a flight home.

What to do in Morocco

Marrakesh is the jewel in the crown of Morocco and perfectly captures the nation's history while offering plenty of modern hotels, bars and restaurants. Highlights of the city include the bustling Jemaa el-Fnaa square, captivating 'souks' (markets) and the resplendent Koutoubia Mosque. Marrakesh is ideally located close to the High Atlas Mountains which are home to the Berber villages. The mountains can easily be visited on a day trip with a rental car from the city, but to really get a feel for the way of life, an overnight stay is recommended. Casablanca is another of the country's urban centres, made famous by the film of the same name. Casablanca also boasts a historic centre and the impressive King Hassan II Mosque. Essaouira is a charming city on the Atlantic coast which is known for its beautiful beaches and bohemian lifestyle, and is a relaxing and ethereal place to spend a few days.

Important info about Morocco

The landscape you'll travel across when you rent a car in Morocco is incredibly diverse. From beaches to mountains, Morocco has it all, and one of the indisputable highlights of a visit to the country is a trip to the ethereal Sahara desert. The vast desert region is located in the east of the country and runs along the border with Algeria. The area is peppered with small towns and villages where you can stop to observe local life and visit sites of historical importance. Some of the more lively and interesting of these villages are Erfoud, Rissani and Merzouga. To appreciate the desert landscapes in all of their glory, camp out under the stars - you can easily arrange this when you are in Morocco. Along with camping, you can also ride a camel through the desert, dine on traditional Berber food and enjoy an authentic local dance performance.

Good to know

Like mainland Europe, Morocco drives on the right-hand side of the road and gives way to traffic from the left. The road signs are also easy to follow and adhere to international formatting. Signs are also written in English as well as Arabic so you should have no problems understanding the directions. Those with a driving licence from an EU country don't need an international licence to drive in Morocco but those issued by other countries must obtain an international permit. The road quality in Morocco is generally quite good, however, the dust can reduce visibility at times of high wind so it is important to take extra care during these moments. There is no specific drink driving laws in Morocco but you should not, under any circumstances, drink alcohol and drive. While you can drink in some hotels and bars, alcohol is not widely consumed in Morocco.

Our tour suggestion for Morocco

Morocco's driving routes stretch from the northern shores of the Mediterranean to the ancient city of Marrakesh, taking in the Atlantic coastline and the Atlas Mountains along the way. If you're looking for a driving tour which is a little more compact then consider the southern loop tour to see the highlights of Morocco, which starts in the bustling city of Marrakesh before taking you through the mountains and locations such as the Tafilalet oasis and the Draa Valleys. If you're keen to explore the coastal locations then a tour from Marrakesh to Essaouira is a must. Best enjoyed over five days, you'll get to experience both the lively history and ancient cultures of Morocco and also its best natural wonders.

What to bring to your friends from Morocco

Head into the maze of souks and you'll be spoiled for choice when it comes to what to take home for friends and family. However, it is always worth bearing in mind what you can realistically carry. Morocco is famed for its leather and you can bag a bargain on anything from jackets to wallets. If you have a foodie friend then a tagine pot or a selection of spices make excellent gifts - saffron is especially popular and incredibly easy to transport. Those with an interest in home and interiors will love an authentic Moroccan lantern. They come in a variety of styles and sizes and can be picked up from the souks for a reasonable price. Don't forget to haggle a little but be sure to keep it polite and fun.
