driving from Malaga to Madrid

I want to drive from Malaga to Madrid and have a stop in Cordoba (Valenzuela), Are there any tolls or are the roads open. How long will it take. I am disembarking the cruise ship on a Sunday

and renting a car at the airport in Malaga, or is there a closer place to rent the car. I want to spend the night in Cordoba. Thanks

Hi there

Your best bet is to use Google Maps, it will give you the Route options to choose to avoid tolls or whatever you want - it tells you how far it is, how long it will take you etc - very simple.

Just to give you an example, it took me 2 mins to get this route: http://tinyurl.com/qck2y8n then all you do is click "route options" on the right to open up the menu of choices :)

Just repeat for Cordoba to Madrid... however, if you didn't want to hire a car and do both ways driving, it might be worth considering the AVE - Spains Super Train...

It takes less than an hour by train from Malaga to Cordoba (as opposed to nearly 2 by car) and from Cordoba to Madrid takes just 1hr 45 mins (as opposed to nearly 4 hours by car) so you have plenty of options.

Maybe you could hire the car in Malaga and do the drive up there and then get the train back?

I am hoping to do the journey this year and I can't wait !!!
