Overview: Car trip from Fez to Casablanca

The car trip from Fez to Casablanca is a great opportunity to deepen your connection to this ancient country. This 180-mile (295 km) distance can quickly be covered in about 3 hours and 10 minutes, but you’ll want to take the scenic route. In between the expanses of olive groves, visit towns dotted with white stone mosques, minarets, and important historical sites.

Daytrip’s private car service takes the hassle out of making travel plans between cities. On your vacation in a foreign country, leave the driving to local experts! Our drivers all speak English and drive insured vehicles, so you can relax as you ride door-to-door in comfort.

About Casablanca

The name Casablanca may conjure up images of classic cinema, but this coastal city is the largest in Morocco and the country's economic hub. However, it still has the old world charm you’ve come to expect from your trip around Morocco, with bazaars, mosques, and leather-working workshops.

Casablanca is a cosmopolitan city with plenty of international influence. As you make your way towards the coast from Fez to Casablanca, you’ll notice the countryside quickly gives way to a modern metropolis.

With such a short distance from the Atlantic ocean, Casablanca has a strong fishing culture. You won’t be able to go through a bazaar or market without seeing heaps of freshly caught fish, oysters, and crabs- all for a good price!

From Fez to Casablanca: travel tips

Follow these travel tips to have the best experience for your trip from Fez to Casablanca.

Pack modest clothing

Make sightseeing and exploring easier by keeping a set of modest coverup clothing in your day bag. A breezy long-sleeve shirt and long pants or a skirt that you can throw on will get you into mosques and help you blend in in more conservative towns. Or get a djellaba for a cover-up and souvenir all in one!

Learn the taxi code

Once you’re in Casablanca, traveling by local taxi is the best way to get around. Public transit is not convenient for reaching tourist destinations unless your hotel is on the route. White taxis are private and just for you and your travel companions, but red taxis are for picking up others as well on your way to your destination.

Get to the airport early

If you have a flight out of Casablanca, give yourself plenty of time to go through security at the airport. Your bags and passport will be checked before even entering the airport, then again after you go through the check-in process. Don’t miss your flight because of an avoidable delay!

How to get from Fez to Casablanca

We've put together a simple travel guide to make it easy for you to decide how to get from Fez to Casablanca. It's fairly straightforward, with plenty of direct options between these major Moroccan cities.

Fez to Casablanca by private car service

Daytrip's private car service is the best way to get from Fez to Casablanca if you value comfort and enriching experiences. Your English-speaking driver will pick you up from your accommodation in Fez and take you on the road trip of a lifetime across Morocco.

Stop by cultural icons like Meknes and Rabat before safely arriving at the door of your hotel in Casablanca. A door-to-door driving service makes vacationing in Morocco a breeze!

Fez to Casablanca by bus

The bus is the cheapest but slowest way to travel from Fez to Casablanca. Buses take about 5 hours and tickets range from 9 to 20 USD. Buses tend to fill up and aren't the most comfortable, so even if you're on a budget, it's worth spending a little extra to get the train.

Fez to Casablanca by train

Trains from Fez to Casablanca leave several times a day and take about 4 hours. Tickets are between 11 and 30 USD, depending on the class of seats you choose.

If you travel to Casablanca by train, don’t be confused by the station names. You won’t find the name “Casablanca". You want tickets to either Casa Port Station or Casa Voyageurs Station. Casa Port is the smaller of the two and is closer to the port. Casa Voyageurs is the main station.

Things to do when you get to Casablanca

Your trip from Fez to Casablanca is just the beginning! See the best that Casablanca has to offer at these hotspots:

Tour the Hassan II Mosque

The Hassan II Mosque was completed in 1993 and is one of the largest mosques in the world. It also has the tallest minaret in the world, at 689 feet (210 meters). The sand-colored walls with turquoise and green mosaic detailing against the backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean are a must-see while in Casablanca.

Non-Muslims are welcome to tour the mosque in between prayer times. Wear shoes you can take off easily, as there are sections in which you cannot wear shoes. After your tour, the promenade around the mosque is full of locals and the sea breeze off the coast is a great reprieve from the warm weather.

See a bit of Hollywood at Rick’s Cafe

Casablanca is a classic romantic drama film released in 1942, set in the city of Casablanca during World War II. Although it was not filmed here, you can visit this fun replica of the cafe backdrop from the movie. Great for Instagram!

Get lost in the Old Medina

Wander through the narrow alleys and bustling souks of Casablanca's Old Medina, where you'll find traditional shops selling spices, fabric, and handmade gifts. It also has a historic Jewish Quarter, known as the Mellah. Wander through its narrow streets, visit synagogues, and discover traditional Jewish shops and markets. You'll find endless photo opportunities exploring the narrow alleys.

When is the best time to visit Casablanca

Plan your trip to Morocco in the spring or autumn for the most comfortable weather. The average temperature is around 77° F (25° C) and the days are bright and sunny. As you make the trip from Fez to Casablanca, you’ll feel a drop in temperature. Casablanca is right on the ocean, so it will be breezier and cooler than Fez, which is about 200 miles (300 km) inland.

Summers are especially intense in Morocco, so avoid visiting this time of year if you are sensitive to the heat and sun. July and August regularly see temperatures of 96° F (36° C) with a very high UV index.

Questions & Answers about Traveling from Fez to Casablanca

Credit cards are more widely accepted in Casablanca than in Fez. But be aware that you cannot add the service tip on credit card payments, so have cash on hand for tips and smaller shops that do not take cards. Cash is still king in Morocco!
As the largest city in Morocco, give Casablanca the time it deserves! Two full days should be enough to cover all the major hotspots but don’t be afraid to take your time and spend a longer time here. Casablanca is sometimes overlooked because it's the "business center", but the medina is still historic and authentic.
Casablanca is definitely worth a stop during your tour of Morocco. See the impressive mosques, and beautiful seaside, and eat all the seafood you can imagine! Casablanca is Morocco’s largest city and the center of commerce, so you will always have something to do while you’re here.
