Just for flights I see £279 return with Iberia. Skyscanner turned up some better prices connecting low-cost airlines, but with some mean layovers in connecting cities (probably not good for a 4 day trip); one with Easyjet via Madrid each way, with 3.5-4 hours layover, for £190 for example. These are best I see for flights.

Check also http://www.bookingbu… for flights, http://travel.kelkoo… and http://www.bookingbu… for hotels.

Not the best, but you said you were looking for cheap and reasonable, and it was the cheapest and reasonable-ist when I checked for you 5 days ago.

Thanks Don,
Let me check them out but would still prefer a direct flight or max of stay at 1 place. Who are the airlines who go to Casablanca? from London?
I have to leave on the 18th afternoon around 3-5 pm UK time.

Did a price quote on EuroTrip and Royal Air Morocco is showing 1100+ USD says Outward. It seems there are no flights after 4 pm.
I am sure I am doing something wrong.

What is the difference between outward, return and Roundtrip as casted on Eurotrip?

Don, If you do get time, Can you please validate some of your prices again? Those layovers are terrible and I am hoping to get with just 1 stop or non-stop to reach well.

I don’t mind taking it from Brussels either if is a late evening flight on the 17th or 18th.

What did you come up with when you checked? Realize that the longer you wait, the more prices usually rise.

I checked for you again and see Iberia best at £249,70. However, it leaves Casablanca at 13:20 on the 20th. I added Dohop.com to the search since it will piece together an itinerary per segment, regardless of airline, but it did not find anything better—based on anything near the departure times you need.

I am getting 330 GBP with a local travel agent and I guess I will go with him as the flight is with Air Maroc and at 6 pm,
However the return is not till the 22nd. I have no idea what to do for the 20th and 21st as there is really nothing to see in Casa,
Most importantly, I am scheduled to be in Tunis on the 22nd which I can look for a ticket from there. But then again, I will lose this money on my non-refundable ticket.

My search last came with Iberia at 351.00 for the timings I am looking for.

They have Air Italia for something like 450 GBP but considering it is now in trouble, I am backing out.

How is Air Maroc?

I finally ended up buying my tickets directly from AirMaroc for 305 GBP, 25GBP cheaper than the travel agent. My travel agent in NY had come up with 600.00 USD but still couldn’t beat the price of te Internet.
