Getting around

When planning a trip in Morocco, remember that the distances are great, and that long trips on buses can be tiring. Bus journeys are often excruciatingly slow, even over relatively short distances. To make maximum use of your time, especially if you don't mind dozing on a bus, take night buses to cover the longer distances. If you have sufficient funds, then there is always the option of internal flights - although these may not always fit in with your schedule. Public transport is very reasonably priced and the train network is good, and being heavily invested in, although it doesn't cover the whole country. Car hire can be expensive: although you may be able to get a small car for 1800-2500dh a week, you still have petrol or diesel costs on top of this. In many places, however, a car enables you to reach places which are otherwise inaccessible.
