Car Hire in Costa del Sol, Costa del Sol, Spain
Travelling to the Costa del Sol for your holidays? Then you are in an ideal spot for travel throughout Spain on the recently upgraded road network. The N-340 coastal road and its relatives tie the coast from one end to the other, making travel between towns by car very easy. The N-340 and A7 toll road also run as far along the coast in either direction as any are likely to want to travel, and connect with many other regions in Spain.
One destination worth mentioning is the ancient Moorish city of Granada (just 1 hours drive from Malaga) with its fantastic palace; the Alhambra. If travelling during the winter months, excellent skiing facilities can also be found in the nearby Sierra Nevada mountain range.
Here are a few additional points to consider: –
Between the months of April – November it can get very hot, especially if driving long distances. Make your life easier with air-conditioning. These days you will typically pay a small daily fee for the privilege. Definitely worth considering!
Child seats are available from almost all car hire companies for a small daily sur-charge.
Even if you have confirmed an extra driver when booking in the UK, do check and make sure that both drivers are registered at the Spanish end. If you and your partner want to drive the car it must be on the papers that you sign at the airport.
