Car Hire Malaga Airport
Please note that if you haven´t been to Malaga Airport for a while the Car Hire Desks are no longer down the ramp but by the carousels where you collect your baggage. Remember there are over 20 car hire companies at Malaga, but did you know that only 8 of them are located inside the airport? Avis & Budget, Six, Europcar, Record & Go, Goldcar, Hertz & Firefly.
Now that we are in low season, car hire is so cheap it´s unbelievable. You can hire a car for a whole week from under 50€. This is the same price as a 30 minute taxi journey from the airport! We personally always recommend our friends and family to hire cars at Malaga, especially in the cooler months when driving around and exploring is so much fun. There are so many beautiful white villages to see and also some amazing Cities all within a couple of hours drive, Jerez, Cordoba, Granada, Malaga and Seville. The public transport here is great, but only up to Fuengirola. Thereafter there are no trains, only buses or taxis. Saying all this, we totally understand that there are many people who don´t want the hassle of hiring and driving a car. We do have some driving tips here if you change your mind and you can always come and chat with us and others on The Costa Del Sol Travel Forum.
Some Quick Tips When Booking A Car
Book flights before car hire.
Book your car asap for the best price.
Add your flight number to the car booking so they know when to expect you.
Air-conditioning is a “MUST” especially during the months of July to September
Book any extras like child seats or restraints which are a legal requirement in Spain this stage, especially during the summer months when supplies can run out. This may be a separate payment with the company direct.
Be sure of the time to pick up the car and time to drop off. An hour or 2 can make a difference to the price.
Don´t just book the cheapest, you can see the car hire companies, have a look at reviews online.
Don´t book the smallest, you do not want cases left on show
Remember everyones driving license who wishes to be a name driver.
Avoid the queues at the desks (especially during the summer months). Leave the ´nondriver´to collect the cases and meet you at the Car Hire Desk.
Think about taking out the extra insurance to reduce your Liability to zero.
Any problems whatsoever call the number on your Car Hire Voucher

Finding Car Hire Desks In The Terminal
Should you be using one of the companies that are located within the airport, they are no longer located down the ramp. They have now been moved to where you collect your baggage at carousel 31. Once you have found your car hire company, be sure you have all the necessary documents, including your driving license. You will be surprised how many people forget to bring this. You may also need a DVLA Code. In high season, expect to queue, it can become very busy. Once you have picked up your keys, a member of staff will inform you on which level of the car park and bay you can find your car. Both car parks are connected to Terminal 3 through the transportation hub. We also provide information on Minibus Hire, Driving Directions from Malaga Airport, and How to Get your DVLA Code

A Few Tips When Picking Up & Dropping Of
To save time in the queue, ask the non driver to collect the luggage.
Have your Voucher ready. Any problems call the number
If you are pushed for upgrades, think do you really need it?
Take your time to check the car for any scratches or damage.
Think about taking out the extra insurance to reduce your Liability to zero.
Before setting off, become familiar with the car and if driving at night, make sure your lights are on.
Take care when collecting your car, don’t get distracted by people or leave your bags anywhere.
When dropping car off, make sure you leave in the correct space or you could be fined.
When you return your car you do this via Avenida Garcia Morato which is the approach road that comes off the MA-21 (formerly N-340) National Road. Just after the roundabout you will see all the relevant road signs which indicate what lane you should be in to access different areas. Car rental return will be the first exit road to your immediate left. Follow the signs until you reach the entrance of your car park. There are corresponding desks for each car hire company in the car park where you can drop off the keys so you do not have to return the keys to the original office in the terminal. The car parks are on floors 0 and -1 of the P2 car park (for picking up vehicles) and on floors -1 and -2 of P1 car park (for their return).
