I have used Thomas Cook, good service and affordable price

expedia may be worth a look and trip advisor for hotel reviews and attractions

if you have a chance check out Majorelle Garden

Always expedia. Always.

Skyscanner

We used easyjet, stayed at a Riad called Riad Dar Saad got really good reviews on tripadvisor and it is almost a 10 minute drive to the popular destinations.

Camel rides are great, i think it is cost us 170 euros for 3 adults one child which include pick up from riad, and transport to the desert and back again. includes food too. It's called Camel Safaries type this in tripadvisor and you will see a picture of a car with 309 reviews, its 5 stars with over 200 reviewers giving it 5.

We took the advice of most reviewers and stayedat a riad as its cheaper and better than a hotel. It can get cold at night. You may want to stay at a hotel but again if your looking to travel most of the time and not stay in as much a riad might be better.

Breakfast is really cheap you can get this for around 4 euros or 4 in M currency. And when you travel via taxi always ask for the total first not after the journey, and if you see a meter ask them to run it because they can make up a fare.

Be wary of people, they may say they will take you on a guided tour, they may not ask for money but they may bug you afterwards.

Dont drink the water, buy some bottled water from the supermarket, not in a touristy area as they will rip you off.



Im going end of March, booked through eBookers.

book the flight with easy jet, and look at reviews for where you want to stay and book separately. you can book direct with the riad owners.

thanks for replies , I thought a week in Morocco would be cheaper for 2, still looking around £1000 it seems

I just booked on Expedia for Feb but we are going to the seasidey bit Agadir .
Expedia were cheaper than booking separately for us , managed to get 4 of us half board for 5 nights for 1100 inc private transfer which I was happy with . Just need to find some excursions now!

In march its alot cheaper, for me it was £440 including flighs and B&B with 20kg luggage added on, staying in a riad that has 90% recommendation from 70 reviews

if going abroad for the first time I would not select Morocco. Its quite a smelly, harassing type of experience. Go somewhere civilised to start with, somewhere in Europe, Italy perhaps.

​Malta is brilliant at this time of year, people are wonderful and most speak english.

Went marrakesh July 2015 with my wife, paid £600 for flights with easyjet and bnb at riad dar alsaad close to the kings castle and which is 10min walking distance away from jamaa el fnaa. We booked everything separately except transfer. On arrival we paid 160 diram for transfer on the return the lovely woman at riad arranged our transfer for 70 dirams. Best to book excursions locally, we paid €15 euros each for atlas Mountain and the waterfall trip. Riad was offering us at €25.

Flights easy jet and riad using booking.com

I think expedia are offering 15% off if you book both together on their site.

Also went Malta last April, we paid £600 including transfer together for flights and 4 star hotel at dolman for 6 nights all booked with teletext holidays.

The hotel 5 min walking distance from the bugibba bus stations where the buses travel to parts of the island. Close to beach and local shops/restaurants and supermarkets to stock up on goods.

If your booking hotels with hotels.co.uk register on their site and they will send out a 10% discount code

yes, what a good idea. take your flack jacket tho

btw Iraq is good too if you want a lively time.
