can anyone advise me on how to buy tickets from ONCF from Tangier to Fes? I don not see any point on the oncf website that allows purchase of this trip, but it does show that an 0800 train leaves Tangiers and arrives in Fes at 1410?
I need to tell the riad where we are staying what our arrival at the station will be and would prefer to prebook train tickets.
Unfortunately you are unable to book seats online. You could try phoning, there is a number on the website.
You can buy a ticket 24 hours in advance at the station.
Your riad will be quite used to unpredictable arrival times, be it by road, train or air; it just isn't a very predictable country.
One good tip for this type of problem is to bring a spare phone and buy a local SIM card - they cost about 30Dhs. It will save you a fortune in roaming fees/frustration! Get the vendor to tell you what your number is, as it's sometimes not obvious.
