Private and shared transfers from Marrakech airport to your hotel
First time in Marrakech? Staying in a riad in the Medina? It can be a bit of a warren, so think about booking a private transfer. This involves the whole guy-with-a-sign-in-arrivals, an air-conditioned car, and going straight to your hotel.
Did you know...?
The Berber phase "murr akush" means “the land of God”, and is the origin of Marrakech's name
Staying in the Palmeraie, the oasis north of the city? A private transfer could work for you too. Also, if you don't fancy the hassle of dealing with a taxi driver, then book in advance.
A shared transfer is the same kind of deal, but with a few extra stops at hotels and possibly a wait for other flights to land. It all depends on who you're sharing a transfer with.
Whether you're after private or shared Marrakech airport transfers, shop around and compare prices.
What's the cost of a taxi from Marrakech Airport to the Medina?
It depends who you ask and how well you can barter. On the meter, a petit taxi to the airport is about 15 to 20 dirhams. The official price on the signs is 70 dirhams. But drivers will ask for double this. If you're happy to walk outside the airport you can secure a lower fare. Alternatively book in advance and avoid the bother altogether.
Is there a Marrakech airport bus?
Yep. The #19 airport express bus. It runs every thirty minutes for most of the day. The only bus stop is at Jeema El Fna but it can make request stops. It's a cheap way to do it, but if you're unfamiliar with Marrakech it can be a little daunting. It costs 30 dirhams.
Transfer time from Marrakech Airport to the Medina
As it’s only a few miles, the drive to the airport is about 20 minutes from central Marrakech. This depends on traffic though. Trips from the Palmeraie or on the bus will take longer.
