Means of Transport Recommended in the Rest of the Country

Recommendation
There is a railroad in the Tangier-Fes-Marrakech triangle. Though not very fast, it is a comfortable and relatively reliable option.
Apart from this route, there exists a rather dense bus network. Best maintained are those of CTM and Supratours.
To access more isolated areas, "big taxis" must be taken. Several seats can be bought if one is in a hurry.

Recommendation
Driving during night is not recommended.
Generally, prudence is required as Moroccan drivers are unpredictable and accidents are frequent.

Conditions For Renting a Vehicle
Very easy and a good solution. Moroccan agencies charge good tariffs.
But, as everywhere else, be wary of being swindled.
