Many tourists choose to utilize taxis so they don’t have to deal with renting a car or riding public transportation. Taxis are fairly cheap and are normally available for hire at any hour of the day. However, it can be more difficult to find a free taxi during peak hours such as late afternoon. Taxis can be found driving around waiting for customers and can also be called by a hotel, a bar or a restaurant to pick up anybody.


Private transfers companies :

Many people in Costa del Sol prebook taxis to be sure that someone will be waiting at Malaga Airport. There are  a lot of companies online like Autosol busdirecto malagataxiservice - LazyBear Travel Ltd.

As it can very difficult to find a free taxi during peak hours, you can use a private transfer company to prebook your transfer.

On other hand, there are many illegal online transfers companies so be carefull and check details properly in order to avoid being ripped off.


Rental Cars:

There are many rental car companies in Costa del Sol, tourists choose to rent them to get where they want to go. There are a few issues, however, with driving in Spain. First, the rules of the road are not exactly the same as they are in the United States. Second, parking is a huge problem – especially in Costa del Sol – and can be almost impossible to find.

There are big multinationals like Hertz , Avis, Budget , etc.  You can also use a brokerage site, to help consolidate your search:

Driving Rules:

  • Drivers may legally have one small glass of wine or beer before getting behind the wheel.
  • Only hands-free cell phones may be used while driving.
  • Tourists (who are not residents of Spain) must pay for driving or parking tickets at the time they are issued.
  • Native drivers are not what Americans would call “nice and polite.” When the light turns green, they will honk if there is a split-second delay by a tourist.
