Driving Tips

Driving in Morocco is a great way to see the country but some care is required. Routes between major cities are generally in good condition but minor roads can be hazardous. Traffic in cities can be extremely congested. The major cities are connected by tolled expressways and you can find out beforehand how much your route will cost. Be aware most signs are posted in Arabic and French.

Here are some of the main roadways:

  • The A3 connects Casablanca and Rabat
  • The A1 extends from Rabat to Tangier
  • The A2 heads towards the east from Rabat to Fez, about a 200 km stretch.
  • The A7 runs south from Casablanca and for now only reaches Marrakech, although it is planned to extend all the way to Agadir.

Tips for driving in Morocco:

  • Speed limits are strictly enforced. In towns and dangerous intersections the speed limit is 40 km/h, infractions can incur on the spot fines.
  • In Morocco driving is on the right
  • All drivers and passengers must wear seatbelts.
  • Carry your license and rental documentation at all times.

What to Do in Morocco in Winter 2020

The weather in Morocco is widely varied in winter although mostly mild with some rain thrown in. The further south you go, the warmer the temperatures are, and visiting a beach resort along the Atlantic Ocean in winter will mean plenty of time for yourself. The Atlas Mountains offer opportunities for skiing and snowboarding, and you can also do these activities in sand dunes! The Erg Chebbi dunes offer a respite from city life and you can also ride a camel. Visiting Marrakesh or Casablanca in winter means avoiding crowds and the extremely hot temperatures of summer. And while the weather in this desert country can become cold at night, in the south you can still see temps in the low 70s in winter. A convertible might be a nice choice to cruise around and enjoy the weather.
