Morocco can mean great Flight Deals - it all depends where you go


Both Lastminute.com and SkyScanner are advertising deals to the Moroccan destinations of Marrakech, Agadir, Fez, Rabat and Casablanca accessible from London, Manchester, Bristol, Birmingham and Edinburgh

If it’s sun, sand and a North African Costa holiday that you’re after, then Agadir is your destination. Iberia will fly you there from London, Birmingham and Manchester but expect to pay upwards of £150 return from July onwards.

Morocco’s most popular destination, Marrakech is accessible from London, Manchester and Bristol with flights from as little as £40 each-way from London with Ryanair, Iberia and eDreams.

For the taste of Marrakech but with less tourists then Fez is your destination. A wonderfully exotic city, particularly the old city of Fez-al-Bali, and gateway to the Atlas Mountains, Fez can be reached from London with eDreams and Iberia for as little as ÂŁ90 each-way.

A note of warning though. Avoid, if possible, Tangiers. Yes, it was the heart of the Beat Generation’s drug-fuelled writing life, but as with many port towns, Tangiers has a dark and dodgy element. Having passed through there some years back en route to Fez, (I had taken the ferry from Spain) I was never as happy to survive a town with wallet and luggage in tact. Beyond this though, true Arab hospitality shows through all over Morocco – and the Hammam scrub waiting for me in Fez was worth the trip.
