Car hires in Agadir: practical information
Where to rent a car in Agadir
Morocco is really the best place to go for an exotic holiday without travelling too far. Exploring the country is much easier if you have a rental car so make sure you book one when you reserve your flights to Agadir. Picking up a car hire from Agadir Airport (AGA) is the easiest thing to do. There are two companies to choose from: Europcar and Easycar.
It’s also possible to hire a car from Agadir city centre. Look for rental companies located close to the central train station or the bus station.
Driving in Agadir: parking and other tips
Agadir is a beautiful city that is generally very flat with wide and clean boulevards, making driving in the city a breeze. While most visitors will only use a rental car to leave the city to explore further afield, it’s also easy to use a car to get from place to place in Agadir.
For parking, it’s recommended to book a hotel in Agadir with parking facilities available. If not, your hotel should at least be able to recommend a nearby car park to leave your car hire overnight.
Road trips from Agadir: what to do, what to see
Souss-Massa River National Park
Located just 40km south of Agadir is Souss-Massa River National Park. Entry is free but it’s recommended to bring a local guide with you to explore the dunes and river. This place is really gorgeous and the effort to get there is worth it.
Don’t have time to visit Marrakech while on holidays in Agadir? Taroudannt is much closer, only 80km away and has plenty of historic sights that are similar to Marrakech and other big historical cities. Don’t miss the Hotel Salam, which was once a palace and the Arab Souk.
You won’t even believe this place is real after you visit. Imouzzer is famous for its waterfalls and is only a 60km trip from Agadir to the north-east. You’ll travel through Paradise Valley to get there and travel up some steep mountain roads as well but this Berber hamlet is charming, you won’t regret it!
