Transmedditerrania ferry

CIHB55
I looked up Transmedditerrania ferry but couldn't get a cost. Can you tell me how much you paid for your tickets. I'm thinking of going in September and I'm looking into my options. Sorry for hijacking the thread!

Try Trasmediterranea (Transmed) - Book Trasmediterranea (Transmed) with A Ferry . to

I'm thinking of that route in late September and the one-way price including bike and single use of two-berth cabin is £106.52.

It should be comfortably warm in October in lower lying cities such as Fes, Marrakech and Ouarzazate. Mountains will be cooler, with more chance of rain.

This shows average max temperatures for Marrakech: weather.co.uk - Climate Statistics - Marrakech, Morocco
