Marrakech Airport Opens a Taxi Booking Counter
Recently opened at RAK airport is the facility of a ticket counter using a cutting edge computer system, allowing passengers to book a taxi before they leave the airport.
Passengers desiring to be taken by taxi are directed by suitable signage to the counter after collecting their bags to hire a taxi and prepay the fare by card or cash.
This prevents being charged more than the standard fare and secures a price through the booking programme. The taxi fare, which is jointly determined by local administrations and ONDA, is given in advance and is set based on the destination.
It is planned that this service will be rolled out online, allowing passengers to pre-book a taxi even from their home country.
