I highly recommend renting a car in Morocco . Unless you’re staying in one city, car rental is the most efficient and flexible way to get around the country. However, if you’re just staying in Marrakesh you might just want to take a taxi or a private pre-booked transfer (to avoid haggling upon arrival).
How Much Does It Cost To Rent A Car In Morocco? Renting a car in Morocco is going to cost you around $25-$ 40 USD a day, depending on the type of car you get. Our 4 door sedan was about $30 per day.
In most European countries , and with most rental companies, you can pick up your car in one city and return it at another with no extra charge. That works fine for Milan and Rome or Nice and Paris, for example, but returning in a different country can easily cost $500 to $1500 extra.
Within Europe , the general answer is yes, you can drive your hire car into a different European country from where you picked it up. However, you may find some restrictions depending on the: Country you rent the car from. Country/countries you want to take the car to.
It is safe to drive in Morocco , but be aware about speed controls so don’t drive faster than allowed. Don’t drive in the dark either and as above take it easy through villages. Avoid to drive in big cities if you are not used to crazy traffic. To go by the car is the best way to see and learn about country.
Uber is unfortunately not allowed in Morocco , it caused a lot of issues for the taxis who at a certain point started harassing any Uber driver, and in the same time they made protestations. Try the Moroccan equivalent of Uber , Careem.
Morocco is a country with a big wealth gap. Haggling and negotiating over the price is an integral part of the Moroccan market experience. However, Morocco is still relatively cheap for many things and can be considered a budget destination if you bear these points in mind.
Buses are the cheapest and most popular way to get around Morocco , and they have by far the greatest reach. A complex network of private bus companies crisscrosses the country, with many competing lines covering the most popular routes.
Vehicle Insurance for Morocco The Moroccan authorities won’t ask for your insurance documents at the border. Yet it is a legal requirement and of course, appropriate insurance cover is common sense.

Renting a car in Europe isn’t much more complicated than in the US, except for some byzantine insurance options. Basic rental rates vary from company to company, month to month, and country to country. The cheapest company for rental in one country might be the most expensive in the next.
Even with Europe’s super-efficient public transportation system, there are times when it makes sense to rent a car . Even if you don’t plan on driving in Europe , bring your license and a credit card. That way it’s easy to rent a car for a day on a whim (and about $50–100). Your U.S. license generally works just fine.
Yes, you do have the option to take your Avis rental car out of state. Feel free to explore metro areas that cover several states or to take long road trips across the country . Keep in mind that if you are dropping the car off at another location (in or out of state), some restrictions and fees may apply.
Can drivers cross the border with a rental car ? Driving rental car from US to Canada or Mexico: Vehicles rented in the US can be driven throughout the US and Canada. Most locations do not allow travel into Mexico.
For long trips that last only a few days, it’s often cheaper to rent a car than to drive one you own . But the decision to rent depends on many factors: the trip’s mileage, leasing costs, fuel efficiency, how much your car depreciates with each mile, tire wear, and the price of oil changes.
