Driving and Car Hire

Hiring a car in Morocco is very expensive, and is not recommended.

A much better (and cheaper) option is to hire a car with driver. Ask the reception for details and bookings.


The main language in Morocco is Arabic, although the majority of people also speak French.

English will be spoken in most mainstream business and shops, but you may encounter difficulties in smaller shops.
