Hi,

Have a look at the banks and money article and the ones about airport taxis in the top questions box on the right first to see if you find answers there.

£37 is expensive (unless that is return?) - contact the hotel directly and ask for a price

Your hotel is in the new Agdal area - taxi outside the airport should cost around 100-150dh

Yes it is a return but dont know how long would be waiting around for pick up said it could be up to an hour so think a taxi would be quicker but thanks for the tip will also contact the hotel

Yes but you can catch a taxi from Jemaa El Fna which means you avoid the airport taxi scrum

"catch a taxi from Jemaa El Fna which means you avoid the airport taxi scrum"

They are asking about coming from the airport. What on earth are you recommending?

I'm recommending taking the bus from the airport to Jemaa El Fna from the airport then taking a taxi from there.
