When you land in Marrakech (RAK) and step out of the airport, you’ll see a few different ways of getting into the city center. In this post you’ll have a variety of options based on your budget and preference. Let’s go over them from the most budget friendly to most comfortable.

If you know you want to go to Morocco, but don’t want to go alone then join my Food and Cultural Experience Group Trip happening in November 2024 open for women! It’s a 10 day trip to see the best that Morocco has to offer while making new friends in an amazing destination. Can’t wait to see you there!

If you opt for the bus option, you’ll be looking for Line 19 and operates between 6:30am and 11:30pm. It leaves from outside the terminal every 30 minutes. It costs 30 Dirhams (DH) per person and it’ll take you directly to Plaza Jemaa el Fna. Expect that locals will tell you the bus isn’t running to get you to take their taxi. If you’re looking at Google Maps for updates on when the bus will arrive, expect it to not be so accurate. Keep waiting a bit longer and it’ll arrive.


There are two taxi options: grand and petit taxis. Taxis do have meters, but most will tell you it doesn’t work. This way they can have you set a higher price than the meter would have given. Even if you insist, they’ll be persistent that it doesn’t work so make sure to negotiate a price you’re willing to pay before getting in the cab. The grand taxis are for 6 people or ones that have more luggage than just a carry on. They tend to be more expensive because they are larger. Petit taxis are more for up to 3 people.

Pro Tip: Always set the price before getting in the taxi, like double, triple check you’re both on the same page.

Private Transfer

Many larger hotels and riads may have private transfers from the Marrakech airport either included in your price or as an add on. If you are going with this option, make sure to ask where they’ll be to pick you up.

If your hotel does not offer this, you can still get a private transfer. This is definitely the most expensive option, but compared to how well the dollar and euro does compared to the Moroccan dirham, it’s not too pricey.
