Ferry to Tangier from Tarifa and car hire

We'll be going to Morocco from Spain and plan on renting a car when we get to Morroco. What I was wondering is if we can rent a car once we get off the ferry in Tangier? If not, how far do we have to go to rent a car? Also, do you think that we should book the car in advance of traveling (we fly to Malaga on May 17 and plan on taking the ferry on M ay 18). Or, should we just book the car when we arrive and play it by ear?

We will only be spending one week in Morroco and would like to be able to get around without verifying bus or train schedules.

I wold suggest that you ring up whilst in Spain and arrange a car hire to meet you at the the port in Tanger. Do not pay any money until you have inspected the car. You are choosing a lovely month to visit Morocco.

Have a good holiday

One suggestion (lots of other alternatives) is to use Europcar, see https://cars.easyjet.com/…

In addition to downtown Tanger, Europcar also has a pickup at Ksar es Seghir near Tanger Med, so rather than having to negotiate the streets of Tanger as your first experience of driving in Morocco, another option is to cross from Algeciras to Tanger Med, see map on post #5 morocco-knowledgebase.net/forum/… then take the autoroute for the first part of your journey so you can relax for a little while.

As tangergirl writes, May is the absolute best time to visit--spectacularly green countryside with lots of wild flowers, and long daylight hours.

Do rental car companies allow you to take a car rented in Spain and take it to Tanger?

Hi Barrigon2012,

Ask the car rental company?
