Taxi fare from City center to airport

We will be staying at the Novotel Casablanca City Center hotel and our flight is 7:30 the next morning. What is the approximate taxi fare to go to the airport for two people with luggage? What is petit taxi and Taxi Vert as often mentioned in this forum? Is it OK just to take a taxi waiting outside the hotel? Will meters be used?

Thank you for all responses!

Hi,

As you are generally advised to get to the airport two hours before departure and adding on travelling time from town you'll need to book a taxi for 05.00,. Taxis Vert are petit taxis who charge the meter fare plus 10 Dirhams during the day and plus 15-20 Dirhams at night. The hotel receptionist will be able to call them for you.

How far is the journey to the airport and how long it will take from the city center?

John, you mentioned we should reserve a taxi the day before. Unfortunately, We will be traveling without the convenience of a cell phone. So calling Taxi Vert will not work for us. If petits taxis don't go to the airport, my other alternative would be Grand Taxis. Are they easy to hail in the street? If I make connection with one the day before, will they be trustworthy enough to come to pick us up the next day as agreed? We have to leave quite early in the morning and if they don't show up, we can be in serious trouble. Also, you mentioned they may pick up additional passengers on the way as they are 6 passengers taxi. How do we determine the fare then?

Thank you again!

Hi John,

Your info is really valuable, thanks! I'm visiting Casa in May, but bought some inconvenient lufthansa lights. So I'm arriving at 00:15 and departing at 6:50am. In which case I'm left with taxi services only.

Would you recommend Taxis Verts for 2 pax transfer? What should be the quoting price? How is it compared to Grand Taxis?

Thanks!

I will also be staying at Novotel in Nov. and 7:30 AM return flight. Tour operator is offering $58 US transfers from airport each way. Looks like worst case scenario with taxi would be less than that. How do you get taxis to agree to the set price of $250-300 dirhams that I should be paying? Is that per person per taxi if more than 1 person or same for 2 people? If it is just me, does taxi wait for other people or is it private? For return I will probably have to have hotel arrange taxi. Should that be more than 400 dirhams for taxi and extra to hotel for arranging plus the early hour or is 400 dirhams the max?

I'll need a taxi next month from Mohamed V to my hotel in downtown Casablanca not too far from the port. Am I to understand that the cost of a taxi (petit vert or grand?) is 250 dirhams? Does that cover a tip?
