How to Plan your Holidays to Morocco from Belfast?

Budget Holidays to Morocco from Belfast
When we talk about the budget, we mean the type of vacation you want to experience. If your budget is big, then ask for a luxury vacation. Then, you will receive a lux service and you stay in luxury hotels/Riads.
However, if your budget is small, It is better to look for standard tours. Though they don’t offer the same privilege, but they are good enough for a wonderful experience. The majority of our travelers book standard tours and we book to them in the hotels that are good enough to be lux, but they aren’t.
Finally, there are cheap holidays. We don’t advise you to book cheap holidays because the service is not that good, and it is logic. When you book with a cheap travel operator, they will book for you in hotels that are cheap and often located in areas far from the center. Therefore, it is better to schedule your holiday for another time so that you can gather some money to book a standard tour.
The time needed for Holidays to Morocco.

Short Term Holidays in Morocco.
Indeed, for short holidays to Morocco from Belfast, you can discover the whole packages below. What we think is that the flight-in and flight-out should be in 2 different places and don’t include Casablanca. Why?
Because if you fly to Casablanca, you will waste at least 2 days; the arrival day and the second day when you travel from Casablanca to Fes or Marrakesh.
Therefore, for a short holiday to Morocco, the flight should be as follows:
- If you fly-in to Fez, you discover Fez on the second day. Then you head over the desert. On the last day, you discover Marrakesh and you fly home from Marrakesh. Therefore, it is not necessary to travel back to Fez or travel to Casablanca for a flight. You can use that day to discover some interesting places before you fly.
- However, if you fly to Marrakesh, you do the same. You fly-out from Fez.
The optimal short break for holidays to Morocco from Belfast is 7 days.
