    Hi all, So many people have gone on holiday to Morocco for under £200 I search and find tickets £300 plus.
    I would like to go this August 18th for my birthday.
    Please help me search for the best deals? Thank you.

    I don't mind finding a hotel out there, just struggling with the flight situation.

    Hi

    Ryanair fly there from Liverpool so that might be a little cheaper?

    Have a play on skyscanner.

    UK to Morocco for month of August. Flexibility around dates and airports.

    Optimistic to expect significant savings that time of year.

    Also it's so close to the flight date and flights don't get any cheaper that way. If you fly from london, search through skyscanner you can get it below £300.

    Are you really sure you want to go to Marrakesh in August? It may well be around 40 degrees - too hot for me!

    Well it took me a whole 5 minutes to find a 14 day return from Liverpool to Marrakesh on Ryanair for £278. Going out 18th August.

    £278 is still a lot if the OP says others have gone for under £200. But you don't need to go that far for super hot in August.

    Most of Spain, Malta and probably most of the southern Med area will be absolutely blazing and you might find cheaper flights to Madrid, Malaga, Granada, Seville, Malta etc?

    Why? Morocco has a coastline so it would be technically possible to swim there from the UK.

    Many people have swum the channel, and also apparently the straits of Gibraltar, but swimming from Cornwall across the bay of biscay and down past Portugal honestly isn't feasible.

    I wouldn't go as far as to say not feasible when trans-oceanic long distance swimming is a thing, but certainly very, very difficult - and with the support team to pay for unlikely to be cheaper than even the most expensive flight!
