Airport to Casablanca transportation options,

How to go to Casablanca from the Airport by Train, taxi or Bus options,

1- Most Reliable and cheap option.

Train to Casa-port station,

This Train is fully in operation and reliable with many trips during the day time,

The train station stop in the Airport name “Casa Voyager” , and the main train station in downtown Casablanca is “Casa Port train station”  is the main one in the city related to Touristic and  historical attractions,

You can check the website for the actual time table on this link www.oncf.ma, make sure it is .ma not .com.

Or try this quicker link directly Airport to Casablanca  trains time table has frequent departures from 7 am to 10 pm, with only one at midnight, the trains are clean efficient and reliable.

Cost of the trip form Airport to Casablanca, “Casa-voyager” to “Casa port” is 150 Mad which is 15 Euro in 2017.

This way for transportation is not for all travelers as you have to carry your bags up and down with you in the train and when you go out from the station the taxi drivers will stop and ask you do you need a Taxi , and can i help you , if you are used to using GPS and google maps ,and have already downloaded  the location of your hotel, it is a fun way to go but as i said it is not for the traveler with lots of bags or the traveler coming at night so you can go and take the other option which is a taxi directly from the Airport to Casablanca downtown.

2- Taxi at the Casablanca Airport to Casablanca down town hotels.

The Airport Taxi has its fixed government price but as you might have expected it would be amazing of you found a taxi to your hotel in Casablanca to do that , so it would be your first time to haggle and negotiate prices in the middle of the night with 10 taxi drivers and you are carrying your bags, so most probably you will look more desperate than a puppy in a box… for a taxi and will go with them for their asking price make sure it is included with bags and for all the passengers with you.

Also if you do not speak any French and never have dealt with bargaining with taxi drivers it would be not easy as a first timer in Morocco or a third world country, so if you get irritated very quick and do not enjoy that make sure to arrange your transportation before you are there.

3- Hotel pickup service,

If your hotel will provide a pickup service it is probably the most convenient as the driver will be holding a sign at the airport arrival hall and take you directly to your hotel, but you have to expect two things as you used their services for airport transportation they will expect that you will book all your trips with them including the city guide and the dinner cooked at the hotel only for you,….

and the other thing you need to worry about that they are most probably will send you a taxi driver who is a relative to the reception and you are not working with a reputable licensed company, so just be assured that you have written down the full address and name of your hotel or Riad in Casablanca, and it would be better if you download it to Google maps on your phone.
