Uncover the wonders of the Costa del Sol!
Malaga Airport and Malaga Rail Station serve one of the busiest areas in Spain. Located in the beautiful region of Andalucia on the Costa del Sol, it's an area of the country with plenty to boast about. Famed as the birthplace of artist Picasso, Malaga itself is dripping in both history and culture yet with plenty of cosmopolitan flair.
The gorgeous coastline ensures visitors flock to Malaga's shores during the summer months, ready to top up their tan and enjoy the sun, sea and sand! With traditional fishing villages and interesting towns all within easy reach, not to mention fantastic scenery and fun attractions, a hire car is an essential addition to any trip to Malaga.
Become a culture vulture at one of the 20 museums in Malaga including the likes of the Picasso Museum and the Interactive Museum of Music among many more! Alternatively, head back in time with a visit to the city's two Moorish Castles; Alcazaba and Gibralfaro Castle both of which are nestled on the hillside overlooking the city. Alcazaba is in excellent condition and boasts lush gardens within the grounds. Be sure to include a trip to the Roman theatre also.
Picasso's birthplace makes for an interesting addition to your time here. It's cheap to enter and contains a vast collection of items from his childhood as well as some paintings created during his earlier years.
Soak up the sun with some time spent on the golden sands of the nearest beaches. La Malagueta is the nearest to the city and therefore it can become incredibly busy but there are many beaches to choose from and further east you go, the quieter they become.
Torremolinos is a popular spot to visit and is just a short 15 minute drive away. One of the first resorts to be developed back in the sixties, it's now incredibly popular for its gorgeous sandy beaches and pulsing nightlife.
El Chorro gorge is a fascinating natural landmark located less than an hour's drive from the city. The entire area is fantastic for rock climbing but there are also some great hikes if you prefer something a little less adrenaline inducing! The "King's Walkway" which traipses across the height of the gorge offers the best of both worlds!
Drive to Fuengirola, 25km south of the airport. It's a cosmopolitan town renowned for its choice of tapas bars and brilliant little boutiques, in addition to the gorgeous beaches.
Within 40 minutes, you will find yourself in the luxurious town of Marbella. With its small cobbled streets; it has the atmosphere of a quaint village. From here, visit Puerto Banus, a famous marina to the west of Marbella. Head to the shopping complex and spoil yourself.
Travel down the coast for just over an hour and you will reach Estepona, a town full of character and charm.
The IATA code for Malaga Airport is AGP.
"After the insurance cover the fuel policy is most important in making my decision. Unless the option to leave it back with the same amount of fuel in it as when I picked it up I would not consider renting. Marbenjo Malaga are a great company."

"no problems at all @ arrival & departure only small thing to remember small engines do not like the airport run (toll road) which we did 4 times with 4 passengers & luggage"

"I liked the fact that you show car hire companies that have a fair fuel policy, as well as all inclusive insurance & a free extra driver. Marbenjo were fantastic & we would actively try to use them again. Although I had managed to mislay the rental voucher, there was no problem-they said we were in the system, so just got on with getting us on the road. They were waiting for us as we came through arrivals, & we were on our way within 10 minutes of arriving at the depot. Pleasant, helpful staff, we highly recommend Marbenjo."

"Helped in negotiating all the car hire firms around Malaga - the vast majority of which have an unfair fuel policy which I wanted to avoid."
