LONDON, October 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

-The warm months which follow Morocco's long hot summer are ideal to enjoy low-cost holidays to this North African country-

Morocco is the hottest and most easily reachable destination for autumn last-minute holidays, say leading online travel retailer, Holiday Hypermarket.

All across this North African country, just a low-cost flight away from main British airports, average temperatures reach the mid-twenties well into the month of October. This prompted even the authoritative travel guide Lonely Planet to recommend autumn as the best time to visit Morocco.

Making a Moroccan trip even more tempting, the country's exotic attractions have become increasingly easier to reach and explore recently. This follows a 2006 open-skies agreement which resulted in many low-cost flights to Morocco from all around Europe. As a consequence, Marrakech and Agadir, two popular destinations for flights from Britain, are now far more accessible for those travelling on a budget.

On top of these developments, state investments in transport infrastructures have reached €10.73bn over the last four years, with airports benefitting greatly. Among them, Casablanca's airport is enjoying a number of upgrades in Terminal One and will soon welcome the arrival of a new Terminal Three.

Calum Macdonald, E-Commerce Manager at Holiday Hypermarket, comments: "October holidays are usually the favoured getaway for those who want to escape Britain's chilly gusts without spending too much too soon after the summer holidays.

"In Morocco, however, it's not simply about cheap prices and warm temperatures: from Marrakech, to Rabat and Tetouan, Morocco's cities enjoy an ancient heritage, while unique local traditions are alluring to British visitors."
