Drive from Marrakech to Casablanca

Hi all! My wife and I have 10 days booked in Morocco this february and are trying to firm up our plans/itinerary. Unfortunately the only non-stop flights we could get to Morocco from NYC was to Casablanca. Before I spend another $800 to book us a flight from Casablanca to Marrakech and back I wanted to ask the people with experience how much it would cost to take a car and what kind of travel time/ride it is??? The only thing we have booked so far is 4 nights at Riad Kniza at the beginning of our trip. We are open to suggestions but thinking about staying around Marrakech for the entire trip and allowing the vacation to be more relaxing. Cheers!

Husband and I have booked 5 days trip to Morocco this month. We will be arriving and departing from Casa. Can some one advise how long it takes by train from Casablanca airport to Marrakesh?

$200 X 2 to Marrakesh and $200 x 2 return = $800.

Maybe look at a train.

John, my apologies I missed the "return" bit in your post.

The cost of a private driver transfer from Casablanca airport to Marrakech Medina is 170 USD each way.

I would only take the internal flight if the flight timings were more convenient than driving.

The drive to Marrakech takes about 3 hours and is a straight-forward drive along the highway. The highway is a toll road which is not usually busy.

The train is the cheapest option but, dependent on your flight times, you could be waiting for the train.

Riad Kniza is an excellent choice. It's beautiful.
