Pricing is simply down to the massive demand on car hire in Malaga during the peak season where thousands of rentals per day are arranged via the airport (AGP), not to mention the off airport and smaller locations around the city, with high demand comes higher prices. Expect to pay up to 3 times the daily rate for your rental car in Malaga during July and August where supply is most stretched compared to January and February where the car rental lots are full of cars and the airline schedules a fraction of their summer peaks.
There is a ‘Car Rental Centre’ at Malaga Airport where some agents are located, a short walk from the terminal building. Other agents offer a ‘Shuttle Bus’ service whereby you are taken by bus to the rental agent. It is often cheaper, but many of our customers prefer the ‘In Terminal’ suppliers for convenience, after all, you are on holiday!
