Malaga Airport Guide

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

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.
