Travelling to Morocco and staying there
There are quite a lot of different boats going to Morocco. When choosing the right ferry, you should actually ask yourself the following question:
Am I willing to pay more for a longer crossing where I have to drive much less and an overnight stay is included?
If the answer to the question is “yes”, then you should consider ferries from France to Morocco. Would you rather save on the trip? Then you can find cheaper crossings after a long drive to southern Spain.
Popular cities among tourists are Fez, Marrakech, Rabat and Cassablanca. For the latter two, the ferries from the southernmost tip of Spain are very suitable (ports: Tarifa or Algeciras) or the long crossings to Tangier. For Fez and Marrakesh you can also choose the boats to Nador, Melilla or Al Hoceima. That saves kilometers by car.
Although Morocco is a popular country among ‘regular tourists', many Europeans with Moroccan roots also visit family every year. If you belong to this group, you will most likely already have some experience in choosing the right crossing. Nevertheless, it can be worthwhile to compare again whether there is not a cheaper or better option. Due to the many connections, there can always be a good deal that will allow you to arrive at a port further on, but you can save a lot.
Once in Morocco by car, you will notice that it is quite doable and that the car is the ideal means of transport. It will take some getting used to for many people in the bustle of the cities, but on average driving in Morocco is not very difficult. Make sure to familiarize yourself with the traffic rules beforehand.
