Car rental in Morocco

Car rental in Morocco

In Morocco, as in every other nation where we’ve traveled by car, we identified the best rental company, the best costs, and the best Car rental in Morocco conditions for you. We discovered all the nuances of Car rental in Morocco, devised the best routes, drove around on our own, and gathered complete and up-to-date information on car rental and car tours in Morocco for 2021: whether you need MHI, what nuances there are, pros and cons, traffic rules, prices, toll roads, whether you can rent without a deposit, and much more!

Why should you rent a car in Morocco?

Morocco is a large and fascinating country, with ancient Fez, Meknes, Marrakech, Casablanca, and the beaches of Agadir, Essaouira, and Legzira on the Atlantic coast in the southwest, Tangier, the Strait of Gibraltar, and the Mediterranean coast in the northeast, and the Sahara desert and Berber kasars in the southwest, including the legendary Ait Ben-Haddou. The High Atlas Mountains cut through the country’s center, and the majority of the country’s interesting cities, locations, and attractions are situated around these mountains.

Morocco is about 1200×500 kilometers in size. The roads are lengthy and winding, and the distances are great. For instance, depending on the route taken, drive 500-850km from Fez to Marrakech.

Car rental in Morocco without a deposit (collateral) and franchising

In Morocco, you cannot rent a car without a deposit unless you purchase complete insurance. Furthermore, the size of the deposit, and thus the deductible, in Morocco is very high – from 900 to 1500 euros in Moroccan dirhams for a car in the economy or middle class!

You must purchase complete insurance if you do not want to freeze such a significant amount on your credit card and/or are concerned about the safety of the car and your pocketbook. Full CASCO insurance might cost as little as 8 euros per day, depending on the rental business and the type of vehicle. Again, full insurance will save you fully from the deposit and deductible in some cases, but just partially in others…

When should you Car rental in Morocco instead of taking public transportation?

The best months to rent a car and go on a road trip in Morocco, in our opinion, are April/May and September/October. It’s warm but not scorching, with fewer tourists and a broader assortment of automobiles.

Features of the Vehicle

Cars are left-hand drive in Morocco, although traffic is right-hand drive, as we are accustomed to. The traffic in the big cities is rather busy and chaotic, resembling Asia in some parts, particularly in Marrakech and Casablanca, with a lot of scooters, cabs, and carts… Outside of cities, however, the highways are free. The serpentine mountain roads are occasionally tough and narrow, but they are often pleasant and scenic.

Morocco’s drivers are far more cautious than those in Jordan and other Arab countries. Almost all of Morocco’s roads are of good quality, and the toll motorways are flawless!

Personal Experience on a Morocco Road Trip

So far, our Morocco road trip has been the most thrilling of all the nations we’ve visited, including Montenegro.

So, what’s the catch? Morocco is a large country with the most diverse landscapes, landscapes, and nature we have ever seen! As I previously stated, Morocco is not only the beaches of Agadir, the medina of Fez, or Marrakech… it is a large country with the most varied landscapes, landscapes, and nature we have ever seen! The sights from the car window constantly changed throughout the road, giving the feeling that we were driving through a dozen nations rather than just one: mountains, hills, dense woods, parched riverbeds, canyons, lakes, waterfalls, deserts, steppes, the ocean… If you don’t believe us, look at the evidence. See for yourself by reading our entire itinerary and all of our Moroccan articles. It’s more than doable, thanks to our extensive information and alternative routes in a separate article.

What exactly is the problem? The serpentines and “looped” route in the mountains! With pauses in attractive sites and sights, you won’t be able to go more than 300-450 kilometers each day on serpentine roads. It’s pointless to return to the same location in Morocco for an overnight stay every time. However, the arrival and departure will very certainly be at the same airport, which is usually Casablanca. Taking a car in one city and renting it out in another is both costly and impracticable! Choosing different airports is thus pointless. In addition, the High Atlas mountain range runs across the center of Morocco, and most of the attractive spots are clustered around it!

Here are different Car rental in Morocco

Prius (Toyota)
The Toyota Prius hybrid was first introduced in Japan in 1997 and first launched in the United States in 2001, with barely 15,000 units sold in the first year. By 2011, U.S. sales had surpassed 1 million, and global sales have surpassed 3.5 million. A gasoline engine and an electric motor with a battery pack are used in the Prius. The hybrid system saves fuel by running the electric motor at low speeds and turning on the gas engine only when necessary. The batteries in the Prius are replenished by braking energy and the gasoline engine. The Prius moniker has been transferred to numerous hybrid products, including the Prius c, v, and Prime, and is known for its distinctive appearance. Toyota’s hybrid technology, which debuted in the Prius, is also present in hybrid versions of some of the company’s other cars.
Clio Renault
Outside, it’s a little shorter than previously – though the 12mm reduction in length isn’t immediately noticeable – a little wider and lower, but with more space, load capacity, and overall volume on the inside. In reality, there is noticeably more space up front, albeit the higher windowline makes it feel a touch less airy crowded in the back. Renault touts the safety benefits of LED headlights and ‘C’-shaped daytime running lights across the lineup. Sharper creases, bonnet feature lines, the Clio’s traditional hidden rear doorhandles up in the C-pillar, a large Renault symbol in the front grille, and some good horizontal lines that visually extend the car. It’s all really clear and sharp, yet it’s neither frightening norgroundbreaking. If Laurens van den Acker’s (Renault’s Senior Vice President of Corporate Design) goal was to clean up a MkIV Clio, he succeeded. But that was precisely the brief: the Clio has been Europe’s best-selling B-segment supermini since 2013, so there was no need for a scary outward revolution – this is still the same Clio, tidied up and made modern. There are also some significant improvements, such as a vastly improved interior (see ‘On the inside’) and new engines. In 2020, a clever E-Tech hybrid will be available, but for now, there are four ICE engines to choose from: a pair of 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrols (Sce 75 and TCe 100) with 70 and 98bhp, a warm-ish 1.3-litre TCe 130 four-cylinder petrol with – you guessed it – 130PS (128bhp), and a 1.5 Blue dCi 85 four-cylinder diesel with 83bh The petrol variants come with a five-speed manual transmission, the diesel with a six, and the fastest with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Play, Iconic, and R.S.Line are the trim levels, with the last a homage to the sportier Renaults and the others varying in kit. It’s a decently-sized, attractive supermini that’s more efficient and intelligent than before. Good.
Toyota TX
The Land Cruiser Prado is a genuine all-rounder, offering the styling and comfort you’d expect from a top-of-the-line vehicle while also meeting the demands of the roughest off-road terrains. This paradigm is ideal for both urban and off-road leadership, according to many organizations. It strikes the perfect balance between power and efficiency. TGS carries both left and right hand drive versions of the TX (diesel) and TXL (turbo-diesel) 7-seater. Both a manual and an automatic transmission are available in the TXL variant.
toyota Hilux
The Toyota Hilux is a quality and attractive LCV that is one of the best on the market. Hilux is a dynamic presence that marries modern sophisticated design with improved power and quality, setting the bar and paving the way for a new generation of multifunctional utility vehicles.
Hyundai Accent is a car manufactured by Hyundai.
The Accent is a bare-bones vehicle with many of the flaws that subcompacts are known for. In our tests, the vehicle’s 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine averaged 33 mpg. That’s admirable, but many larger, more substantial compact cars, like its Elantra stablemate, match or even surpass it. Under hard acceleration, the engine sounds coarse. The firm suspension does little to cushion bumps and ruts, and the interior is filled with road noise. Easy-to-use controls are found throughout the simple interior. The back seat is cramped, and the seats are lacking in support. Active safety features are only available on the top Limited grade, which is priced like a compact car, further undercutting the subcompact’s appeal.
Range Rover is a Land Rover model.
Land Rover’s iconic Range Rover is a tried-and-true SUV that prioritizes luxury, comfort, and aesthetics over capabilities and performance in both on- and off-road driving. The five-seat Range Rover comes packed with technology, including standard air suspension, complex infotainment options, and permanent four-wheel drive with configurable terrain settings. This flagship SUV comes in both normal and long-wheelbase versions, as well as a number of trim options.

Dacia Logan
The Logan MCV, Sandero, and Sandero Stepway have all had their exterior and interior designs revised by Dacia.

For a more dynamic, contemporary design, the models feature a new lighting signature on the front and back. The front and back lights have been redesigned. Three stacked rectangles make up the pattern of the front LED daytime running lights. Three lighted squares make up the back lighting signature. The new Logan MCV and Sandero all get a more modern front bumper with chrome accents on the air intake grille. Meanwhile, the front and rear bumper designs have been updated to emphasize the models’ powerful stance. On the new Sandero Stepway, these design modifications have a particularly significant effect. This model sports a new frontal identity that is based on the Duster’s design elements. The grille neatly integrates the black tones of the bumper with chrome trim, giving the vehicle’s nose an even more dynamic look. A chromed exhaust tailpipe in the back emphasizes the car’s tough, ready-for-action demeanor.
