How it works

As soon as your booking is made, we will email you a confirmation. This will contain your booking reference, details of your car hire provider and where to find the car hire desk when you arrive at your destination. If you're picking up your rental car from Malaga Airport, then your confirmation will state whether the desk is located within the terminal or a short free shuttle bus ride away.

A word about insurance

Our Spain car hire agreements all include a collision damage waiver. This means that, in the event of theft or damage, you won't be charged any more than your excess.

Our mission at Holiday Extras is to make things as hassle-free as possible so you can get on with enjoying your holiday. Our total protection insurance for your Malaga car hire will give you extra piece of mind, that in the event your car is involved in an accident, we've got you covered. We regularly compare and price-check all our policies to ensure we bring you, not only top notch cover, but great value for money too. All our policies include the following:

  • Damage and theft excess
  • Damage protection for all mechanical and exterior of the car
  • Cover for any immobilisation, admin and towing charges
  • Free cancellation up to 48 hours before travel

Exploring Malaga and the Costa del Sol

Once you've picked up your hire car, then you'll be free to explore all that the Costa del Sol has to offer. If you're after some rays, then the bustling traditional resorts of Benalmadena and Torremolinos both have wide sandy beaches and a host of facilities. If you fancy having a look at how the other half live, then head off to the marina at Puerto Banus and admire the luxury yachts.

Venture a bit further down the coast, and you'll come across the picturesque resort of Nerja. It boasts a lovely sandy beach, as well as a wide promenade and even its own caves, the largest of which is used as a concert venue. Another unmissable sight is the pretty mountainside village of Mijas Pueblo with its whitewashed houses. It has a large array of shops and boutiques selling locally produced crafts and art, as well as being home to the famous donkeys.
