Field report: Private Airport Transfer in Marrakech with Getyourguide

There are many ways to get from Marrakech’s Menara Airport into the city centre. Apart from shuttle bus services and taxis you can by now book convenient airport transfers easily online. Here’s a field report on Getyourguide.

A four-hour-flight (depending on where you start) can be rather strenuous and it may not be to everybody’s taste to either bargain appropriate taxi fares for a ride into town with sometimes rather pushy taxi drivers immediately after landing or to take a public shuttle bus not knowing where to get off exactly. The bus may be the cheapest option, yet if you travel with a group of four or more, this price advantage vanishes. In December 2015 I travelled with four fellow travellers and gave private airport transfer offers a chance.

Getyourguide: Easy booking process and good service

Different transport companies offer private airport transfers from Menara to Marrakech’s city centre via Getyourguide’s booking platform. Their rates only differ slightly and resemble those of the Grand Taxis. We booked about 20 hours prior to our expected arrival time in a very quick and uncomplicated booking process on Getyourguide.

How to get into town from Marrakech’s Menara Airport

After having sat in a plane for hours and having passed passport desk and visa control you will find yourself in the entrance hall of spacious Menara Airport. If you have booked an organised trip or planned otherwise in advance, you will enjoy being welcomed and picked up directly at the airport – if you haven’t, you have to see to find your way to your destination in the city centre of Marrakech.

If you do not yet carry Moroccan Dirham with you, you should get at least a small amount of money directly at the airport — either at one of the official exchange offices or at one of the four ATMs inside the terminal building. As these do not always work reliably, it is definitely advisable to have some cash ready to change money.
