Car rental Malaga airport

Car hire Malaga Airport

Malaga Airport (AGP) is the most important airport on the Spanish Costa del Sol. It is located eight kilometers south-west of the city of Malaga and five kilometers north of Torremolinos. Car rental at Malaga airport will provide you with the freedom you need when going on vacation. If your rent a car in Malaga, you will have the perfect base to start cruising over the Costa del Sol. Malaga airport is for Spanish tourism and the main international airport serving the Costa del Sol. Malaga Airport has flight connections to over 60 countries worldwide. The airport has three passenger terminals. You can easily transfer between terminals since they are connected through the former waiting area of terminal 2. Restaurants, bars, stores and currency exchange are some of the facilities Malaga airport offers, among others.

Rent a car at Malaga airport

You can find various car hire companies at Malaga airport that can be of service to you. The easiest way to book a rental car is to compare prices and cars online and book them in advance. This way you can be sure to get the car that suits you, for the lowest price available. By booking your car rental in advance, everything will be taken care of and your trip to Malaga will be as comfortable as possible. All car hire companies at Malaga Airport are located at Terminal 2 basement and at Terminal 3 ground floor, among others:

Cheap car hire at Malaga airport

If you are afraid car hire at Malaga airport will cost a fortune, don’t be. Because of the high competition levels car hire is relatively cheap in Malaga, compared to other European destinations. In Malaga car hire prices start at only €8 per day.
Keeping in mind that car hire only costs €56 a week, it is a very affordable option compared to going everywhere by taxi. If you want to explore the beautiful nature and culture of Andalusia, a rental car is your best option!

Last minute car hire

Last minutes are always tricky, as car hire suppliers can be out of stock. If, however, you are a daredevil and you want to wait until the very last moment, you can be lucky and get a rental car at a substantial discount. However, we advise everyone to book a rental car well in advance, especially during the summer. The sooner you book, the lower the prices are and the more cars are available.

What to do in Malaga

The surroundings of Malaga are very beautiful and a rental car can be perfect to explore this beautiful area as freely as possible. The airport is close to the city center so with a rental car you can be there in no time! Malaga, the city that was home to Picasso, is filled with culture. It’s home to a variety of restaurants, from Michelin star quality to tasty fish shacks. Maybe it’s a bit obvious, but the beaches in Malaga are truly something that can’t be missed. Sandy beaches cover the coastline for several kilometers.

Things to keep in mind when picking up your rental car

You are going to need to take some documents along for your car hire at Malaga airport. When picking up your car at the airport, make sure to bring the following:
Furthermore, keep in mind that you will have to buy insurance for your rental car. Booking your insurance in advance via HolidayCars will not only save you a lot of money, but also decreases your waiting time at the airport.
Take a look at the frequently asked questions about insurance at the following page: HolidayCars FAQ. Don’t forget to book your car rental early to get the best deal!

Security is starting to spend more time on UK passports, allow extra time for that. No smoking area after security so smoke before entering the airport. Plenty facilities and places to eat whilst waiting to board.

Quick access to city with no need for car rental if not travelling further. Amazing weather as it is almost always sunny. Great food in local tavernas where you see usually just Spanish people. Local clothing brands such offer something different you can find at home to bring with you are memory and fashion addition to your wardrobe. No need to carry cash around as majority of places accept credit card. Always choose tapas instead of any international cuisine to experience real Spain.

Plan well ahead. Make sure you have all the correct documentation ready. Look for the best deal, it is worth the time. Read other people’s reviews on the various services to help make your decisions. Give yourself plenty of time to allow for transfer from or to the airport if you are hiring a car, not all of the car hire firms are in the vicinity of the airport. Sometimes the smaller car hire firms are cheaper and provide a better service.

You get what you pay for. We were extremely satisfied with our rental. We paid $20.08 for a small car for a total of four nights with unlimited mileage. Yes, we had to wait in line for about 20 minutes. Yes, the return area was a bit confusing and the return staff weren't as welcoming/friendly (they were not mean, just short and not as focused on customer service, but they were fine). But our vehicle was newish and clean. And we paid a very very reasonable price. Would book with them again!

We have travelled to Malaga several times over the years. Airport is clean and has all facilities you need. Plenty of seating both in and amongst the travelers as well as being able to find a quiet corner. An area for improvement would be in the luggage security check area. It was a bit slow and lacke coordination . I would suggest a visit to Gatwick to view their set up which has had major improvements and is now extremely efficient and means you can be through to lounge in no time at all.

I would recommend hiring a car. It's an easy and cheap process that really opens the country up to you. We were there during the Easter Holy week. As a result the towns and cities we visited were really vibrant! Old town in Malaga is a great place to find lively tapas bars. I would also definitely check out the Roman Theatre in the city. It is very central and the visitor centre is totally free. The craft stalls along the promenade also had fantastic jewellery for cheap.

Renting a car is a good idea, as long as you rent it with the right company. Then, take one day at a time to visit each of the city of your interest. Don't drive more than 2-3 hours, so you can enjoy the city you are visiting by walking. Traveling from Malaga to Fatima Portugal was a very exciting experience, two driver is highly recommended. Leaving early Malaga is must, so you can arrive Fatima/Portugal around 11 am and stay for about 4-5 hours in Fatima and visiting Lisbon.
