Malaga airport to Cordoba connection?

hello there how are you doing? Wonder can some kind person advise the best way to travel from Malaga Airport to central Cordoba please! The flight gets in about 7pm...would it be better to wait to the next morning to travel on? What is better train or bus? Where do we connect with these? Many thanks! : )

Hi there

Trains go roughly every hour, but I would suspect you would make the 20.15 - it takes about an hour and costs around €20 one way.

More info can be found on www.renfe.com

If you want to get the bus then I don't think you'd make it as it leaves at 19.30.

It takes 2.5hours and is €15 one way.

From the airport you can take the Cercanias train to the Maria Zambrano Station. You can get the train to Cordoba there. The last train to Cordoba leaves at 21:05 h.

Just post back if you need any further information, there is certainly no need to read an article that is nearly 9000 words long (even though it's very good) just to book such a simple train journey.

The website is easy enough to use but if you need any help or want to consider other options then feel free to post back and I can help :)

Hi

We have done a similar thing to this. As has been posted you need to get to Maria Zambrano ( It is a simple journey from the airport - follow the signs for trains and it is across the road from the main exit ) There are machines to buy your tickets you must have a ticket to get through the barrier - you can choose your language and it is self explanatory from there ) There are two platforms Fuengirola and Malaga- you need to go for the Malaga one. Once you get to Maria Z ( the main railway station ) just go to the ticket office and ask for the next Media Distancia to Cordoba. That way you are not worrying that you will miss a pre-booked train .In busy times they have a ticket waiting system in place - also there is a q for travel today.

The train station is a bit outside the city so we got a taxi in. You are then in the city for the morning and ( if you want to beat the rush ) you can go to the Mesquita early before the bus trips get in.

Don't book your train in advance - this ties you to a particular train and the tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable, so if your flight is late......

It's an easy journey, don't worry. There are touch-screen machines at Malaga Maria Zambrano station to get your tickets to Córdoba.

If you miss the last train there are good hotels by the railway station.
