Car rental in Malaga

Car driving on coastal road.

Dubbed the Capital of the Costa del Sol in Spain's Andalucia Region, car rental is the perfect choice for exploring the 12 km of sandy beaches that make up the Malaga coastline.

We advise starting your car rental tour of the area with a visit to the pretty town of Casabermeja. Just 20 km from Malaga and set amongst beautiful countryside, the town is surrounded by the mountain ranges of the El Torcal, Cabras, Co and Los Camorolos. A fascinating traditional village, Casabermeja has prehistoric origins.

Next on your list of car rental destinations should perhaps be the town of Almogia. Called 'The Pretty One' by the Moors who at one time settled it, this picturesque village is west of the Malaga Mountains and is renowned for its surviving Roman roadways.

The village of Alhaurin el Grande preserves its Roman and Moorish heritage too, and car rental is also needed to visit this vibrant town. In the forested areas to the southeast of its borders, archaeologists have found evidence of Neolithic occupation.

10 km east of Malaga, you can also use car rental to reach the town of Rincon de la Victoria. Originally a fishing village with prehistoric origins, it has since grown into a popular tourist destination with sandy beaches stretching for some 9 km.

No car rental tour of the region would be complete without a trip to Torremolinos. Just 7 km west of Malaga Airport, this famous resort has gone through a revival to emerge as an attractive destination with clean, sandy beaches. It also presents a great choice of quality hotels and restaurants, and is renowned for its vibrant nightlife.

We work in partnership with Avis to provide your car hire. All Avis car rental includes mandatory third party liability insurance*, unlimited mileage, collision damage waiver (excess applies), theft protection (excess applies), taxes and airport surcharges*. If you want to reduce excess payments, you can pay for Super Collision Damage Waiver when you collect your car.

(* for North American residents we offer Exclusive car rental plans, details of which can be viewed in relevant search results).
