Tips / Destination

The North African country of Morocco is a magical place in which to become engrossed in the culture, cuisine, fashion, architecture and landscapes, but the developing country is still catching up with the rest of the world in terms of interconnectedness via public transit. Despite this fact, it’s still possible to travel the country with ease and often for little money.

 

By Car

Renting a car is by far the most flexible option for touring around Morocco as you’re free to depart when you want, stop when you want and make last-minute detours if the mood strikes.

 

By Van or Bus

Getting around by bus is likely the most time-consuming option as it takes extra time for giant buses to careen around mountain roads and through small desert towns. A trip between Marrakech and Casablanca can take up to four hours; Marrakech to Rabat, 4.5 hours; and Marrakech to Fes can take up to nine hours.

 

By Train

Traveling around Morocco by ONCE train is definitely one of the cheaper choices. Tickets can be as low as $10 and a journey from Marrakech to Casablanca is about 2.5 hours, while a trip to Fès may take up to seven hours.

 

By Plane

Flying between Moroccan cities like Marrakech to Casablanca or Fès are quick (about two hours) and can be relatively affordable, with prices starting at approximately 1,089 dirhams, or $113.

These personal goals could be learning a new language, starting a yoga class or learning how to cook. To complete these goals, you need the right tools in place.
