Casablanca is the largest city of Morocco. While Rabat is the political center of the country, Casablanca is the economical one. It's a relatively modern city, that doesn't resemble typical Moroccan cities.
The city houses over four million people.
Casablanca is located in the western part of Morocco, on the Atlantic Ocean. The Moroccan capital Rabat is located about ninety kilometers to the northeast; the old imperial city Marrakech is located 240 kilometers south of Casablanca.
Casablanca's harbor is the largest of North Africa and therefore plays a principal role in local economy. Through the harbor products such as phosphorus, fish and meat products, textiles, leather and furniture are exported. The construction sector is also important: the coastal strip near Casablanca is rapidly being transformed into a strip of vacation resorts and amusement parks.
Casablanca's international airport is officially called Mohammed V Airport, after the former king of Morocco. The airport is situated thirty kilometers south of Casablanca and is easily reachable by rental car. From the city center you take the highway to Settat; from the northeastern districts of Casablanca you take the highway to Marrakech. The exit to the airport is clearly indicated. The smaller Casablanca-Anfa Airport is mainly used for local flights.
Casablanca has good public bus transport. However, during rush hour the busses are often overcrowded and you need to beware of pickpockets. As everywhere in Morocco petit taxis play an important role in public transport. These all have meters but sometimes you have to ask the driver explicitly to switch it on.
Traffic and Parking
Traffic in Casablanca is busy, but with a little flexibility you will have no trouble finding your way in this Moroccan city in a rental car. It isn't recommended to park your car in the street. It's better to leave your rental car on one of the many guarded parking lots or in a parking garage.
Casablanca has a good supply of hotels. You will find most budget hotels near the Medina, but the same neighborhood also offers luxurious accommodations. Casablanca isn't a top attraction of Morocco. In general it's therefore not necessary to book your room long time in advance.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?
To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver.
