Lost luggage meant we didn’t get to the car hire desk until after it had closed so had to find someone to get our car. Sorted eventually but many frayed tempers.

What type of Car can I hire in Malaga?

The good news is, due to high demand, supply is plentiful and with that comes a wide range of suppliers, makes and models to suit every need. From mini and economy cars such as the Fiat 500 and Ford Fiesta right through to Premium and SUV’s such as the popular BMW 3 Series and Nissan Qashqai, there really is a vehicle to suit everyone and every budget.

What Fuel Policies are Available?

Car hire companies have come in for their fair share of criticism over the years for unfair fuel policies aimed to bring the ‘base cost’ of the rental to a minimum by adding a hefty surcharge for pre-paid fuel that is often not required and the profits retained by the rental agent. Thankfully, the industry has cleaned up its act and most rental agents offer the most popular ‘Full to Full’ policy, meaning the car is supplier with a full tank of fuel and so long as is returned full, no further charges will apply. We strongly recommend the full to full fuel policy for car hire Malaga and all other rentals for that matter.

What’s the difference between ‘in-terminal’ and ‘off airport’ Malaga Car Rental?

As the name suggests, in terminal suppliers will be based in the rental terminal itself making them the most convenient, particularly for families with young children where find and catching a shuttle bus to an off airport location can be unwelcome following a flight. There is also 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!

How to Avoid Car Hire Queues at Malaga Airport

It’s not uncommon during peak season for Malaga Airport to be very busy indeed, in fact over 16 million passengers passed through its doors in 2016, a record year by some margin. With such passenger numbers inevitably comes queues for services such as car rental. It’ll come as no surprise that some rental agents fare better and often the cheaper car rental agents at Malaga Airport are likely to have the longer queues given the higher volume of rentals to process and possibly lower staff numbers to keep costs low. By contrast, the premium suppliers are likely to have shorter queues to get you on your way quicker. We take a quick look at average queue times during the year for premium and budget suppliers.
