Budget for a three week trip to Morocco


When we were leaving on a three week trip (September 27th - October 18th) to Morocco, we didn't know exactly how expensive it is going to be. In the end we were pleasantly surprised with the outcome.


We bought 2 return flight tickets from Venice, Italy to Casablanca, Morocco in advance. Everything else we spent were admission fees, travel (bus, train and taxi rides), food, drink and accommodation expenses, various other shopping expenses (gifts, postcards etc.), a trip to the Erg Chebbi desert and some other things.

Morocco - 3 week expenses (2 persons)
Item Expenses
(daily AVG)
Expenses
(3 week SUM)
SUM 59 EUR 1.307 EUR
MyAir flight tickets (including taxes) 13 EUR 282 EUR
Travel expenses (bus, train & taxi) 9 EUR 189 EUR
Accomodation (budget hotels) 11 EUR 247 EUR
Food & drinks 16 EUR 351 EUR
Admission fees (desert trip, museums etc.) 8 EUR 167 EUR
Other (gifts, postcards etc.) 3 EUR 71 EUR


It all added up to 1.300 EUR for both of us. On average that's under 60 Euros per day!
Considering we traveled more then 2.500 kilometers (1.550 miles) around Morocco I'd say it was a bargain. You can check out a detailed map of our trip in this post.




So if you liked the report of our Moroccan adventure, I recommend you do it yourself. I am pretty sure you will enjoy it much more and spend less money if you do it without an agency.


Let me just point out that MyAir (the low cost airline we used) are not flying at the moment. They are grounded due to financial problems. That shouldn't be a problem, because there are many alternatives available out there.

Thanks for the info! Your photos are absolutely stunning. I was in Morocco with my husband about a year ago and we were shocked at how little you could get by on. We'll definitely be going back to see more of the country in the future.

Hi!

I like your report and photos. What would be best season time for two weeks "family tour"? Did you travel by public transport or rent-a-car? How's traffic?

Thanks!

@Mare:
Thanks. I guess best time to travel is spring and autumn (to avoid the heat and crowds). We went in the second half of September and it was great.
We used public transport, which is just fine and quite cheap (trains are close to European standards, with buses I suggest you use better companies like CTM and you'll be fine).
If you are on a tight budget I suggest you try public transport and see how it goes. If it doesn't work out, you can still switch to rent-a-car witch shouldn't be too expensive.
Between cities roads are not too busy with traffic but driving anywhere near the city centre is not for the faint hearted. Driving after dark can also be a bit risky due to some locals driving with lights off and an occasional horse carriage.

I suggest you check out my other posts under the label Morocco. You can find some more useful information there. If you want to know anything else, feel free to ask.

We spent 2012 traveling around the world and Morocco was one of my favorite places. We went for about 10 days and stayed for 32. I am pretty sure we exceeded your budget, but we have kids with us. Cant wait to read more of your Morocco.
