There are two types of taxis in Marrakech: Petits taxis and grands taxis. Petits taxis are fairly small and calculate your fare using a meter (most of the time). Grands taxis are larger and generally have a fixed rate per route. Note that standard rates do not apply to taxis operating to and from the airport, so negotiate a fee with the driver before getting in. The trip from the airport to central Marrakech takes about 15 minutes and shouldn't cost more than 200 MAD (around $24 USD). Also, avoid spending more than you anticipated by ensuring your driver knows exactly where you're headed. Some drivers will deliberately take you to the wrong hotel because they're on commission (the hotel hopes that you'll stay there instead), while others will simply misunderstand you. To avoid confusion, clearly write down the name and address of your destination on a piece of paper.
