HOW TO GET THERE

GETTING IN

Flying into Marrakech Menara (RAK) Airport is the quickest way to get there. Lots of airlines are offering direct flights to Marrakech. We recommend booking you flights as soon as possible as prices are going up very quickly. 

Another option is Casablanca Mohamed V Airport (CMN), but you will have to take a 3hour train journey to Marrakech. 

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS TO MOROCCO 

You must have a valid Passport to enter Morocco.

If you hold a full passport from the UK, Ireland, the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand or any EU country, you don’t need a visa to enter Morocco as a tourist for up to ninety days. However, your passport must be valid for at least six months beyond your date of entry. Please double check your visa requirements before departure as the situation can change.


TRAVEL NOTES

LOCAL CURRENCY

The currency of Morocco is the Dirham. You can exchange currency at the airport. We would recommend always carrying cash with you as lots of places are cash only (restaurants, cafés, taxi, shop…).

WEATHER IN MARRAKECH IN MAY

The average high in Marrakech is 29ºC in May, which can drops to a cool 14ºC at night. Please bring some warm layers for the evening.

TAXIS IN MARRAKECH
There are Grands Taxis (i.e. large) and Petits Taxis (i.e. small) in many cities in Morocco. Petits taxis are more for inner-city transportation.
A petit taxi ride in Marrakech costs around 30 Dirhams. There should actually be a taximeter in every taxi but it’s best to set a fixed prices before getting in the car.

From the airport to the city
You can take both a petit and a grand taxi for this. The price should be fix and indicate on a board near the taxi station.
