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.

"As always total satisfaction as in the past I was always badgered to take out extra insurance. The gent that met us at the airport was very humerous and more than helpful. I can always book with Economy with total confidence and know that there are no unforseen surprises at the airport"

"On this occasion I was grateful for the help given in changing the details of the booking as a result of my credit card having to be replaced. This necessitated a change in lead driver and this was achieved with no little effort by yourselves on my behalf. The rest of the rental procedure from booking to the ATESA end was smooth and trouble free."

"I had to change my original booking for a larger car which you swiftly arranged and actually saved me money. The car hire firm in Malaga, Atesa, upgraded this car for a small additional fee and I ended up with a brand new Audi A4 automatic for something less than I had originally paid. Collecting and returning the car was extremely efficient. All the important hire conditions were clearly explained in fluent English. The queues at car hire desks at Malaga were all very long except at Atesa. I was able to collect my car quickly."
