    • Car hire Marrakesh

      by mogster Online Now Jan 1, 2016 at 4:28 PM

      Happy New year travelers!

      Just a quick question (or 2 :)), have any of you heard of or used Medloc car hire in Marrakesh? I was going to use Malta car (thanks angiebabe) but they didn't have availability. Medloc get good reviews on TA but feel you get more honest advice and info on here so thought I'd ask before booking. I keep reading horror stories about even the big companies Hertz, Europcare, Avis etc so thought it may be good to give a small independent a go. Anyone else bought additional insurance too? I'm a bit freaked out by the massive credit card depositis and £800-1000 excess on nearly all car hire terms there.

      Thanks in anticipation!

    • Riad collection from airport, rip off?

      by mogster Online Now Nov 30, 2015 at 8:01 PM

      Hi fellow travellers
      Just a quick question. I've contacted the riad I've booked asking how much to collect us from the airport. They want €30 (€20 for couple plus €5 per additional, 2 adults and 2 kids). Our flight arrives at 3pm, first week February. From what I've read this seems expensive but I don't want to offend the riad owner before we get there!

      Any thoughts?

      Many thanks

      Accra to Marrakesh/Casablanca

      by alycat Online Now Sep 19, 2015 at 6:43 PM

      I will be traveling to Ghana with a 1 and half year old kid from the US in December. I want to visit Morocco too on the way back home. I looked online and found connecting airlines taking passengers to Europe and Mid east and bringing them to Morocco. Is there a cheaper and shorter way to fly to Morocco (Casablanca or Marrakesh) from Accra, Ghana?

      Any help/advice is greatly appreciated.

      by Phil92 Online Now Aug 3, 2015 at 4:19 AM

      Hej Dear All, I will go to Marrakech end of November. I travel alone and never have been visiting countries other than in Europe before. I will stay for 5 nights at a hostel. My embassy warn to go there and in particular warn to avoid going outside the city, to villages in the mountains etc. This is mostly because of the recent conflicts regarding ISIS (hostage-taking), Algeria, Mali, Mauritania, and Western Sahara.

      Do you have any recommendations? How to behave, what to expect, what to avoid, preparing my trip, maybe staying at a safer hotel?

      Thanks in advance, Phil

      What's the best way to mail or ship to the U.S. from Marrakech? Fedex? DHL? I'm not planning on buying too much in the Souks but what if I find a tea set I can't live without? Or a bargain on Djellabas? This is not our last stop in our travels so I don't want to cart a full suitcase around with me til I leave for home.

      who is traveling to Marrakech in may/ june ?

      Hi evryone
      If anyone here is interested to come to Marrakech and are willing to know the culture I will plan a time to meet depending on my work obligations. I do that because I feel that most of the tourists feel scared of all what is said about Marrakech but I have to tell you that you don't have to feel as such .I love Marrakech and it's people I can't live anywhere else I just find myself in this city. I do have friends coming from all the corners of the world and we just had fun together and some times I took them to visit my family in the mountains which totally calm and people there are very respectful. am here in need. I wish you a good stay in Marrakech city.

      Marrakesh - query

      by csuresh Online Now Mar 9, 2015 at 4:28 AM

      We have finalized our trip for next month having full 3 days in Marrakech. First day we want to visit part of the top 10 attractions that Google throws for Marrakech - Menara Gardens, Majorelle Garden, El Badi palace, Koutoubia Mosque, Marrakech museum and around Jemma El fna. We will be using paper maps - any other tips. What is the best way to navigate from one place to another? Day 2 - we plan to use guided Atlas mountains and trip. Day 3 - we have a late night flight so have full day with us - is there any tours that one can recommend where we can spend around 5-6 hours including travel and visit? I will be travelling with my wife and 2 daughters aged 9 and 6. I have asked a general query earlier and with plans getting firm - wanted to goto next level to check-up
