Whether you want practical or luxurious, the variety of cars on KAYAK will make sure you get the vehicle you want. The majority of cars available from the airport have unlimited mileage, and either a full-to-full or a same-to-same fuel policy.
There are eighteen car rental agencies that operate from Essaouira Airport's car hire section. All the pre-paid cars are less expensive; however, you can pay on-site during your pickup, but it will be slightly more expensive. Additionally, you can also pay for any added extras you included in your booking when you arrive. If you forgot to include anything when you made your booking, it may not be available when you arrive. We suggest you make a checklist so you don't forget anything. On your checklist, also remember to write down your licence, International Driving Permit, credit card/s, a valid identity document and your printed booking confirmation, unless it's stated that an electronic reservation is accepted.
Regardless of your itinerary, we strongly recommend that you book a car that has a good, strong air conditioner and a heater that works well, as the temperatures in Morocco can be extreme. We also recommend making a reservation for an SUV, a van or a 4x4 vehicle so it's easier to navigate any terrain you might find in the countryside. If you want to impress your business partners or feel like splurging on a little luxury, book a premium or a luxury car. To help get you a more budget-friendly option for these vehicles, book well in advance. Windscreen, tyre and undercarriage insurance are a definite must-have if you book these.
You prefer to drive an automatic car? The international operators at car hire companies have automatic cars, Europcar, especially has a lot of options. Should you need an automatic car, we suggest you book well in advance and confirm it after getting your booking confirmation. You can compare the automatic cars from different operators using KAYAK. Just select all your search filters, and choose ''automatic transmission".
