Discover Malaga with a hired car

With Driveboo, you can now easily and quickly compare different offers of cars for hire in Malaga, and choose the one that best fits your needs. Malaga is the unofficial capital and heart of the region of Costa del Sol in the autonomous community of Andalusia. The area is known for its lovely beaches, breath-taking landscapes and friendly people. Driving in Spain is simply a pleasure — the roads are newly built and safe, and take you straight to the doorstep of the best accommodations, restaurants, cafeterias and feel-good-places. Even the smallest towns in Spain have ring roads. What is more, there are no holes or bumps, all the roads are well marked, and all the traffic signs are extremely clear, even for tourists with zero knowledge of Spanish. Are you ready to hit off?

Where can I hire a car in Malaga?

In Malaga and its surrounding areas, you’ll find over 20 car hire companies. You can also rent a car at the Costa del Sol Malaga Airport (AGP), located just 13 km from the city centre. This is definitely the most convenient option for those travelling by plane. At the airport, you will be provided with a wide choice of rental cars, tailored to many different needs. You can rent a small coupé or a large SUV — the options are endless! The desks from which you can collect your rental car are located in the Baggage Hall at carousel 31.

Insurance for your rental car in Malaga

Car hire companies in Spain are required to provide insurances for your rental car. For your own protection, you should opt for the full insurance without non-waivable excess in case of an accident, damage or theft. Your rental car also needs a third party liability coverage.

Driving a rental car in Malaga

All driving licences issued in the European Union are valid in Spain. In Spain, it is only necessary to pay a toll on motorways. Tolls are collected at toll gates and the amount depends on the category of the vehicle and the length of the journey. There is no need to buy a toll sticker. You can pay with cash or use your credit card. It is also possible to use a payment system, known as "Via-T", which allows you to pass through toll gates without stopping. However, it is only really suitable for those who frequently drive in Spain. The average price while driving a rental car is € 9.5/100 km.

What should I consider when driving a hired car in Malaga?

The legal limit of blood alcohol concentration in Spain is 0.05% (breath alcohol content: 0.25 mg/l), and 0.03% (breath alcohol content: 0.15 mg/l) for drivers with less than two years of experience. Exceeding this limit may lead not only to a high fine, but also to a driver being arrested and taken to the nearest police station. The driver and any passengers occupying the front and rear seats of the vehicle are all required to wear seatbelts. Law enforcement officers can fine a driver or passenger for not wearing a seat belt with a ticket of 90 euros per person. If you park in an unauthorised place, you can expect a penalty of up to 300 euros.

Enjoy Malagas surroundings with a rental car

Have you spent enough time sunbathing and enjoying the beach? Do you long for a little adventure? Then you should definitely take your rental car on a discovery trip along the Costa del Sol. Your first stopover should be Marbella, where you can mingle for a day with the rich and beautiful. Sierra de las Nieves, with its snow-capped mountains, numerous small and deep green lakes, and lovely watercourses, is also definitely worth a visit. From here, you can enjoy breath-taking views of the Mediterranean Sea.

The Castillo de Colomares, near Torremuelle, or the Castillo de Sohail in Fuengirola, where various cultural events, markets and concerts are held, are also great destinations for a day trip. If you prefer to visit Motril and Almería Nerja Caves and the Sugar Museum in Motril before heading to Granada, Cordoba and Sevilla.

Marbella 61.4 km 57 min
Sierra de las Nieves 65.7 km 1 h 56 min
Castillo de Colomares 38.4 km 39 min
Castillo de Sohail 36.9 km 43 min
Seville 173 km 2 h
Nerja Caves 60 km 49 min

Our tip: If you travel without a lot of luggage, you can rent a small car or a convertible, for which you can always find a shady spot in a car park or enjoy the Spanish fresh air.
