Hi uaflier.

I would say that car rental/self-driving is safe & fun in Morocco as long as you are a confident driver, and you get your rental from a major rental co. (Avis, Hertz, SIXT, etc.)

If you are a nervous driver or can't drive a 5-speed, perhaps the drivng is best left to someone else. If you are calm and experienced at the wheel, and good at driving stick, you'll be fine.

The roads are in good shape and are well marked for the most part.

Hi I looked at issue the other week as well. After the help of others tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g293730-i9195-k234…

It looks like we might use a guide for a 14 day trip. Not that I'm put off the driving, it was just that the hassle of finding a place to park it in the cities, is taken care of. We can be dropped off at the ideal spot, and wonder.

Hi usaflier, I've driven there 3 times and am returning this March. This time I'll be driving a 9 seater Mercedes Mini Van.

The roads are good and there isn't much traffic. The cities are another thing entirely. I find a petrol station on outskirts, ask one of the many motorbike riders there to guide me to hotel, find ou desired fee, negotiate and follow to destination. Pay guide.

I always look on net for hire cars. Have used Europcar, Budget.
