On August 2nd I will be on vacation in Marrakech and I would like to buy two night train tickets to Tanger for that night. I\'m trying to make the purchase from the website, but apparently the last train leaves at 19:00. Is it the night train? Is there a train that leaves later? Is it possible to buy tickets online? I don\'t arrive to Marrakech until July 29th and I would like to have a place to travel.
Best Regards, and thank you very much
Hi Carolina and welcome to railcc!
The train at 19:00 from Marrakech is the night train to Tanger, arriving the following morning at 06:15.
Tickets can be bought online at [ux]https://rail.shop/oncf/[/ux] however as far as I know sleeping car accomodation is not available online (only 2nd and 1st class seats).
You could buy tickets for a seat online and then try to get an additional reservation for a bed locally at the train station. Maybe also contact ONCF directly.
I am trying to by my tickets but, when I put my credit card data, an error appear and I can\'t finish my purchase. Is it because I am not in the country where I an trying to buy the tickets?I have to wait until been there to purchase it?
Thank you for your help.
Good to hear that booking works again.
It is a common problem... often it happens that credit cards are blocked for purchases in countries which are not standard (in view of the banks). Therefore I would contact your bank, they should see why the payment failed and ask to allow it. Also a problem are prepaid-creditcards which are often not accepted. That\'s my experiences from the past.
Hope it helps and good luck... and if you like, let us know how your trip was in the night train. Interesting to know for other travellers as well! :)
