Night train to Marrakech - how can I book it? (Going Weds!)

I’ve been getting conflicting advice about booking the night train from Tangier to Marrakech. I’m travelling alone with two small children - this Wednesday hopefully! - so I’d prefer to book a sleeper cabin but haven’t found any way of doing so. Does anyone have any recent experience or information that might help? Many thanks, Sophie

One still can't book online with a foreign bank card, apparently. You will have to wait till you get to Morocco and then go immediately to the station to book.

However, I do vaguely remember someone posting here that they got a High Street travel agency in the UK to get them tickets in advance. You could try searching for that thread or pop down to your local travel agent.

i would think if you bough the tickets as soon as you can , you should be OK with out prebooking.

I think PickledHerring is refering to: http://www.marrakechtickets.co.uk/

They are not UK but Marrakech based, run by someone from the UK I assume by the web address though.

But that will only help for buying tickets from Marrakech anyway - I dont know of any similar service in Tangier so you just have to hope there are tickets left when you arrive or go the day after

Marrakechtickets also works for Tanger departures, and there's also the Tanger-based Travellink, see https:/…20Morocco
