Tips for renting a car in Málaga

Browse helpful tips for renting a car in Málaga including age restrictions, car type suggestions and more. Tips were last updated on 20 June 2024.
  • Renting a car in Malaga offers several advantages over relying on public transportation. The flexibility of having your own vehicle allows for spontaneous exploration and the ability to visit remote locations, such as secluded beaches or quaint hilltop villages, which might be inaccessible by public transit. This flexibility also means you're not tied to the schedules and routes of buses or trains, giving you the freedom to plan your day as you wish. Additionally, the region around Malaga boasts some incredibly scenic drives, such as the route through the white villages of Andalusia, which are best experienced at your own pace in a private vehicle. This convenience and freedom make car rental a superior choice for travelers looking to fully experience Malaga and its surroundings.
  • Malaga, located in the heart of Spain's Costa del Sol, is perfectly situated for exploring the surrounding areas, and renting a car is an excellent way to do so. Nearby, the picturesque town of Ronda, with its iconic bridge and breathtaking gorge, is just a 1.5-hour drive away. Granada, about 2 hours from Malaga, is home to the majestic Alhambra Palace, offering a rich historical and architectural experience. For a taste of luxury and beautiful beaches, Marbella is only an hour's drive, providing upscale shopping and a charming old town. Nature enthusiasts will enjoy Nerja, a short 50-minute journey, known for its stunning caves and serene beaches. Each of these destinations offers a unique glimpse into the diverse landscape and culture of Andalusia, easily accessible by car.
  • When you visit Málaga, a city on Spain's southern coast, you'll find a Mediterranean climate with hot summers and mild winters. To keep comfortable in the summer, make sure your car's air conditioning is up to the task, as temperatures can soar. The sun can be quite intense, so using sunshades when your car is parked can help keep it cooler. Always carry water with you, especially during long drives, to stay hydrated. In winter, while snow is rare, be cautious on rainy days since roads can become slippery.
