KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Essaouira

  • Driving a car hire in Essaouira gives you the advantage of being able to sightsee around the region, as well as being a cost-efficient way to travel if you are with a group. Because Essaouira is a coastal city, hiring a car will allow you to easily access attractions and beaches along the coast, such as Essaouira Beach. It will also give you easier access to the dense Medina (old town) of Essaouira without having to worry about navigating the public transport system.
  • If you are flying into Morocco on an international flight, then the closest airport to Essaouira is Marrakech Menara Airport (RAK), which is located about 176 km northeast of Essaouira.

For your Essaouira car hire you can book with AVIS, Budget, and others, at the airport. Expect the drive from the airport to take approximately 2 to 3 hours.
