4x4 hire is expensive - 4x4's are expensive to buy compared to a Fiat Panda.

As a rough guide, you could hire a Defender with a driver for about 100 euros a day through an agency. About 120 euros for a landcruiser with a driver.

If you avoid an agency and find a driver with his own vehicle then you should be able to get it down to about 40-60 euros a day if you are good at bargaining and have a good story as to why you are so poor(!). Thats about what the driver gets paid by an agency.

But if you want to drive then the risks go up and insurance is insanely expensive for foreign drivers in Morocco.

Good luck and let us know how you get on...
