KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Essaouira

  • One major advantage of renting cheap car rentals in Essaouira is the freedom it gives you to explore the city and surrounding areas on your own terms. There are several nearby attractions that are more easily accessible via car, including the charming seaside town of Sidi Kaouki, the picturesque village of Moulay Bouzerktoun, and the stunning Ounara Valley. Renting a car allows you to visit these places comfortably without having to rely on public transport schedules or expensive taxis.
  • Agadir Almassira Airport (AGA) and Essaouira Airport (ESU) are the two major airports in Morocco that serve Essaouira. Agadir Almassira Airport is located around 107 miles from Essaouira and the rental car offices are located in the arrivals hall of the terminal. You will also need to walk to the car rental garage, which is just a few minutes from the terminal building. Essaouira Airport is the most convenient airport to pick up Essaouira car rentals as it is just 11 miles away. At ESU, the rental car offices are located outside the terminal building, just across from the parking lot.
