ADVICE FOR BOOKING
1) Check availability of flights on the airline’s own web site to find the best prices.
2) Flights booked with 14 days of departure are very unlikely to be cancelled because of the substantial compensation that must be paid.
3) EasyJet flights restart on 8th February with flights to Agadir from London Gatwick:
in February & March: Sat, Mon & Thurs; from April onwards Sat, Tues, Wed & Thurs
Ryanair is running flights including from Manchester and London Stansted to Agadir and Marrakech on Saturdays & sometimes on Tuesdays too.
Short direct flights to Morocco are available all year round from several UK airports and from various cities in Europe.
Agadir is the closest airport to Taroudant (50 minutes’ drive along a good and fairly quiet road). An alternative is to fly to Marrakech, with a choice of 2 options: 3.25 hours on the new motorway or 5 hours over the spectacular Tiz n Test Pass, said to be the most scenic in Morocco and Michael Palin’s favourite trip ever!
We strongly advise travelling to Agadir rather than Marrakech if possible – it is a small efficient airport with a good quiet road link to Taroudant.
It is always helpful to seek advice from us about the best flights to Morocco because we understand how to produce the best itinerary, bearing in mind a variety of factors including: flight timings, luggage allowances, days that flights operate, when the flights are released, pattern of pricing (varies depending on when you book, dates, days, the airports and airlines), as well as flying into one airport and home from another.
If you are taking part in one of our group holidays, we liaise with your group leader to decide on the best flight option for the group, and send you the relevant information plus a link to the airline’s website when the flights are released and/or the group has recruited sufficient people to make the holiday viable. On the other hand you are free to choose to use different flights. Nonetheless we offer to transport you to and from the airport, but it is likely to be more costly.
General Advice for Booking Flights
We advise that you always make flight bookings via the airline’s own website (e.g. www.easyjet.com) because flight availability is always accurate, prices should be the lowest at the given time and the booking is easy to manage.
The flights that we recommend are all direct (saving fuel and your time!) and at reasonable prices, ranging from £20 (if you book early at non-peak times) to around £100 each way. For non-peak dates you will usually pay under £100 for return flights including hand luggage. Because hand baggage allowances are generous with Easyjet you may not need to pay for a hold bag or could share with a friend.
Use the Airline’s Own Website
We advise that you always make flight bookings via the airline’s own website (e.g. www.easyjet.com) because flight availability is always accurate and prices should be the lowest at the given time. To avoid being directed to sites selling flights on a commission basis, you MUST type in the full airline website address into your browser. Sites such as Skyscanner and Expedia extract information from many websites, but this is unreliable because they do not show a comprehensive list of direct flights, show many indirect flights at much higher prices or claim that a particular flight is full, when it is available via the airline’s website. Also it is very difficult to change your flight booking whereas the airline’s web sites are easy to use.
