Cheap car rental in Rabat – FAQ

City and Compact category vehicles are perfectly suited to driving in Rabat and for parking in the narrow streets of the capital and its surroundings. If you plan to drive a lot, then it is better to opt for a sedan or an SUV depending on the number of people riding with you.

For a car rental in Rabat or Morocco, drivers must be at least 21 years old and have 12 months of driving license experience for most of our vehicles.

For certain rental vehicles in the SUV or Premium categories, the minimum age is 23 years and 24 months of driving license seniority.

If you're coming by car, you can try to find a free parking space in downtown Rabat. To do this, you'll often have to pay a few dirhams to the guards who watch over the "free" parking spaces in town. Even if they say they're watching your car, we advise you not to leave any valuables visible in your car, as the "surveillance" is not flawless. Paid parking spaces are relatively affordable (2-3 dirhams, around €0.30) and are more frequent in the heart of the city.

Another solution is to take advantage of "park-and-ride" facilities to avoid the difficulties of finding a space in the center, by parking at the end of tramway lines (for example: in Agdal - Terminus Tramway Madinat Al Irfane) or in train station parking lots (Rabat Agdal, Rabat ville...).

Cheap Car Rental in Rabat - 3 Tips

Pick up your rental car at Rabat-Salé International Airport

The best car rental prices in Rabat are found at agencies located at Rabat-Salé International Airport. Indeed, this part of the Rabat agglomeration houses the largest rental agencies with strong competition among renters, and therefore better rental prices.

Additionally, it is at the airport where you will have the greatest choice of vehicles with all categories available.

Book in advance

The earlier you book your car rental in Rabat, the lower the prices will be. In Rabat and in Morocco, rental rates are determined based on the number of available vehicles remaining. The fewer cars available in Rabat, the higher the rental rates increase. Therefore, the earlier you book, the more attractive the prices.

Make your reservation online

Car rental rates at Rabat agencies are always higher than online for two reasons : 

  • Competition is much stronger online than at the agency counter, which forces car rentals to be more flexible with their rates.

  • Renters know that a customer who comes to the agency is a customer who will not leave empty-handed, so they take advantage of the situation to increase their rates.

Collision Insurance and Theft Coverage

With Hertz Morocco, all our rental vehicles in Rabat or any of our agencies in Morocco are required to be rented with collision insurance and theft insurance. In case of an accident during the rental period (scratch, broken glass, flat tire, theft of the car, etc.), the primary driver is responsible for damages up to the insurance deductible.

Rental Car Deductible

The amount of the deductible for a rental car in Rabat depends on the vehicle itself.

Deductibles start at 14,000 MAD (approximately 1,400 €) for cars in the City category and go up to 36,000 MAD (approximately 3,600 €) for family or premium cars.

To limit your financial responsibility and have nothing to pay in case of an accident with your rental car in Rabat, we offer Partial or Total Deductible Buyback services, which you can subscribe to when making your reservation or before picking up the vehicle in Rabat.

Visiting Rabat

Rabat, the capital and largest city in Morocco with over one million inhabitants, is a must-visit destination for any traveler in the northeast of the country.

Located on the Atlantic coast, its mix of UNESCO World Heritage-listed historical monuments and vibrant contemporary culture is worth taking time to discover: admire the Hassan Tower, get lost in the medina, visit the Mausoleum of Mohammed V, stroll through the Souk Rue des Consuls, visit the Chellah Necropolis, walk in the botanical experimental garden with its 250 different fruit trees and plants, and visit the Kasbah of the Oudayas... there is something for everyone!

Not to mention its numerous restaurants serving Moroccan and internationally recognized cuisine. But that's not all - thanks to its location on the Atlantic Ocean, the capital is an ideal place for water activities or to spend a relaxing beach holiday in good company!
