Marrakech is a particularly inexpensive city, where the price of transport, food and accommodation is very much affordable. But if you want to save even more money, especially on your flight tickets, here are a few tips that may help you find cheaper tickets.
1. BOOK YOUR FLIGHTS IN ADVANCE
Last minute reservations can turn out to be absolute disasters if what you are looking for is cheap tickets. The sooner you make your reservation, the more chances you will have to find flights at great prices. Many airlines even offer their best tariffs (starting at 5 or 10 Euros) in flights booked several weeks, or even several months, in advance.
2. CHOOSE YOUR TRAVELING DAYS CAREFULLY
The cheapest choice is to flight on weekdays, especially from Tuesday to Friday. Flying on weekends can turn out to be a lot more expensive, since demand is higher and airlines increase their weekend tariffs. I also advise you to avoid flying on Mondays or Fridays, since business trips mostly occur during those days and airlines apply business tariffs.
3. AVOID FLYING ON HOLIDAYS AND BANK HOLIDAYS
It is easy to figure out on what days will be more expensive to fly: Easter holidays, Christmas, summer holidays (especially August) and bank holidays. Above all, the worst dates are the days before those periods, since prices can be quite astronomical and you may have trouble finding tickets due to the enormous demand.
4. FLY LOW COST
The main European airlines, such as Air France, Air Europa or Iberia, flight into the Menara airport in Marrakech. But there are also plenty of low-cost airlines that flight Marrakech from the UK, France, Italy, Switzerland, Belgium, Germany, etc. You can flight direct to Marrakech from several UK airports for as little as £5!
5. SEARCH AND COMPARE PRICES ONLINE
It may be a good idea to devote some time to looking for deals and compare prices on the internet. It is also a good choice to check with some travel agencies that offer package holidays that include accommodation and flights, as well as some online reservation centres, such as espace-maroc.com or riad2000.com, which suggest excellent deals on accommodation, transport and leisure.
So if you are planning on flying to Marrakech, I hope that these tips will help you save some money on your tickets. Once in Marrakech, you can stay in one of the fantastic Marrakech hotels, in one of the typical riads of Marrakech located at the heart of the medina, or even in a luxury villa in Marrakech or its surroundings.
