Choose either a 'grand taxi' for up to six passengers or a 'petite' taxi for up to three. Grand taxis are not permitted in the Medina in Marrakech, so bear this in mind depending on your destination. There are several rules to remember when taking a taxi in Marrakech or you risk being over charged. Always get the taxi driver to put the meter on before you depart, or agree a price before you get in. Tthe airport should be a 15 or 20 minute ride from the centre of Marrakech.

There is also a convenient general bus running between the airport and the Jemaa el-Fna (the main square) every 20-30 minutes throughout the week (less at weekends). Look out for Bus number 11.
