Malaga Airport Guide

Car hire Malaga Airport
Car hire Malaga Airport

Car Hire

Malaga Airport is Spain's fourth-busiest airport. Located just an eight mile or three mile drive from Malaga or Torremolinos, respectively, the hub is mainly used by European tourists, especially those from the UK and Germany, for accessing destinations around the popular Costa del Sol region. Car hire in Malaga Airport is a great way to tour the coastal resorts.

Who to Book With
Those interested in arranging their own personal transportation can find a suitable vehicle through one of the 23 companies that serve Malaga Airport. Nine firms; Autos Lido, Aurigacrown, Avis, Europcar, Hertz, Goldcar, National, Record and Sixt, have desks in the terminal. Off-site companies usually pick their customers up in a courtesy bus.

Need to Know Essentials
You will need to show the following documents at vehicle collection:

- Full valid driver’s licence (both parts)
- Credit card used for the reservation
- A passport for confirmation of driver’s identification
- Booking confirmation

For more info read our FAQ's.

Driving
Driving around Spain's towns and cities is often hectic and parking spaces can be hard to find. Fines of up to £80 can be issued to drivers who park illegally. Driving across Spain without a map can be a stressful experience, especially in areas where one-way or no left-turn roads are commonplace. Drivers on Spain's highways must rest every two hours or risk a fine. Most Spanish filling stations accept payment by card or cash, with payment usually made after filling, as in the UK.

See our guide to Spain for more information on driving here.

Transport

Malaga Airport is easy to access as it is connected to key roads in the area. Drivers travelling from Marbella or other destinations to the west can use the AP-7, while the A-46 connects with the north. The E-902 links with towns and cities to the east. Buses, taxis and trains are the other options for those without their own vehicle.

Trains
T3 has its own train station which connects Malaga Airport to Malaga city centre and popular destinations around the Costa del Sol, such as Torremolinos, Benalmadena and Fuengirola.

Taxis
Taxis at the airport leave from outside T3's Arrivals area. Official taxis have an orange sign on their roof and either a meter or a book full of set fares to key destinations around the area.

Malaga Airport to Fuengirola is about £30
Malaga Airport to Marbella is about £55
