Transfer Information From Malaga Airport

Effective from 10 th Jan 2013

Train Transfers: (Tren in Spanish) The most preferred way to transfer. 

Firstly the directions to the Station from the Arrivals building:

Once you have collected any luggage etc. you will exit through T3 Arrivals/customs.  The route to the station is clearly marked with signs with a picture of a train. Aim diagonally left as you leave T3, towards the corner of the terminal building. Head straight across the road. The New Train Station is around 100 metres in front of you.

At the station make sure you have some coins with you as the machine sometimes rejects notes, especially if short of change. Notes are accepted up to 20€ denomination but only give change in coins. There are 4 machines. By the way, you can change the language on the machine to make it easy to use. The average fare is about €1.95 so that will give you an idea on how much change you will need. The walk will take you around five minutes and the station has both lift access and escalators. For Torremolinos, Benalmadena and Fuengirola you need the platform signed as Fuengirola, the other platform is signed as Malaga, these are the directions the trains are heading. All the stops are announced by tannoy as they approach the station and also shown on signs above the platforms, however they are in Spanish dialect.
