Essaouira taxis can be an important part of your trip for getting around town or travel to and from Essaouira.
Are you planning a holiday to Essaouira?
If you are wanting to visit the different parts of Essaouira, you will most likely be wanting a taxi in Essaouira.
First time visitors to Morocco, who don’t understand the taxi system can end up paying more for their ride.
So, let’s get on straight away and help you to travel around Essaouira without hassle.
Whilst visiting Essaouira, you will probably need to travel around town to visit the main attractions in Essaouira.
Essaouira is a popular Medina town to visit in Morocco, and you can read our list of Essaouira things to do for free.
Additionally, there are many interesting and historical places to enjoy in Essaouira.
When you need to travel around town for a short journey you could consider a public Petite taxi or a public Grande taxi.
Petite Essaouira taxis are usually small, blue coloured vehicles which can be easily identified. Petite taxis are public taxis and these can be hailed in the street whenever you need them.
The Petite taxis are usually old, do not have air conditioning and are licensed to only seat a maximum of 3 passengers. They are only able to carry you around within the city limits, so for short trips across town, they can be a perfect solution. A journey from one part of Essaouira to another usually costs only 70p or 90c Euro in total.
Hailing a Petite Essaouira taxi is simple, you just wave at the taxi, and then tell the driver where you wish to go. Always remember to either fix a set price that you are happy with or ensure that the driver starts his taxi meter when you get into the car.
Grande Essaouira taxis are usually large, blue coloured vehicles which can be easily identified. Grande taxis are public taxis and these can be hailed in the street whenever you need them. There are some newer models around town presently, but still, they do not have functioning air conditioning.
Alternatively, you can find a myriad of Grande Taxis at the Essaouira place de taxi which is located at the Essaouira Bus station, which you would arrive at if you were taking a Bus to Essaouira from Marrakech or other Moroccan city.
The Grande taxis are usually old, do not have air conditioning and are licensed to seat a maximum of 6 passengers. That is, amazingly, 4 passengers in the back seat and 2 people in the front passenger seat. All in all, with no ar conditioning, it’s a bit of a squash, so make sure that you are good friends with the person sitting next to you.
Grande taxis in Essaouira are licensed to travel regionally in Morocco, so they can transport you to other cities. Remember though, that with no air conditioning, and old vehicles, it’s not going to be the most comfortable of rides.
Hailing a Grande taxi in Essaouira is simple, you just wave at the taxi, and then tell the driver where you wish to go. Always remember to haggle the set price that you are happy with. Grande taxis do not operate meters, so, you really need to know your price before you get in the Grande taxi.
