Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency such as Orbitz or Expedia, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. However, if you’re using The Platinum Card® from American Express, you’ll need to book directly with the airline or through the Amex Travel portal to get 5x MR points. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz or Expedia’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to get the time away from work or family.

Flights from across the US to Morocco are on sale. You can fly from Newark (EWR), Orlando (MCO), Cincinnati (CVG), Washington DC (IAD/DCA), Pittsburgh (PIT), Nashville (BNA), Minneapolis (MSP), Detroit (DTW), Las Vegas (LAS), Raleigh-Durham (RDU) and likely other cities (if you’re willing to endure a day-long layover) to Casablanca (CMN) or Marrakesh (RAK) from $456 round-trip. Keep in mind that some of the flights listed below have two stops on the journey to Morocco. If you find yourself getting antsy during one of your layovers, check out our official layover guide.

While you’re in Morocco, try and book a stay at an authentic Moroccan riad, one of the world’s most unique accommodations. Most riads operate independently and do not have a rewards system, so we recommend using where you can earn 10x miles with the Capital One Venture Rewards Credit Card when booked via Venture and paid with your card through Jan. 31, 2020.
