Marrakech airport parking
The airport parking area can be found outside the Marrakech airport arrivals, across the slip road and up some steps. Additionally, at the bottom of these steps, you will find two information boards containing the schedule of airport buses and taxi fares.
In order to get to Marrakech city centre, you need to take a number 22 bus from the main road about 5 min walk outside the Marrakech airport arrivals. The last bus leaves the airport at 20.30 and it goes to Inezgane, from where you can take a number 20, number 24 or a number 28 bus, any of which will take you into the centre of Marrakech. Bus fare from the airport to Inezgane costs 4 Dirhams.
Marrakech airport taxi
The taxi rank is just outside the Marrakech airport arrivals building. A taxi ride to the city centre takes about 20mins and the car can take 5 people plus baggage. The drive costs about 150 Dirhams before 19.00 and 200 Dirhams after. For other destinations expect to pay about 100 Dirhams to Gueliz, Hivernage and Jemaa El Fna, 150-200 Dirhams to Palmeraie. The taxi fare to the hotels along the Route d’Ourika should not exceed 300 Dirhams. Although the prices on the board are valid for all the taxis at Marrakech airpor arrivals, many drivers will try to overcharge you. Remember that the price is counted for the whole taxi and not per person and it includes your baggage. It is recommended to agree on the fare before getting into the taxi.
