Like a modern country, Morocco has excellent road infrastructure, large vehicle hire fleets run by international and local rental companies, great weather and plenty of stunning scenery – which combines to make self-driving a viable and enjoyable option.
Like in many countries nowadays a row of car rental booths greet you at the arrival hall of Moroccan main airports. Just pick out your prefer car from your prefer company and s don’t forget to take out the insurance offered by the vehicle rental companies, unless you have specific cover in place. All major credit cards are accepted.
If you come from USA or Europe it will be quite easy for you to drive and operate car in this country because Morocco like the other countries in North Africa drives on the right-hand side of the road. Like in all other parts of the world, the wearing of seat belts is compulsory in Morocco and using mobile phone while driving is also against the law.
In Morocco there are two toll motorways. One runs from Rabat to Casablanca and the other starts in Rabat and ends in Tangier. Despite the number of the toll, it is useful for you to be aware that the general speed limit on North Africa’s national highways, urban freeways and other major routes is 100km/h (67mph). On secondary (rural) roads it is 80km/h (52 mph). In built-up areas it is usually 50km/h (33 mph). All distances in this country as well as the speed limits (and speedometers) are marked in kilometres.
Various types of petrol (gas) are available in North Africa: unleaded, 97-, 95- or 93- octane (“super” or “premium”). The 95-octane petrol is available at higher altitude, as well as 93-octane. At the coast, your choice is between 95- and 97-octane. Diesel is available with 0.05% sulphur content and 0.005% sulphur content.
