Malaga-Costa del Sol Airport is the gateway to the resorts and beaches strung along Spain’s sun-soaked Costa del Sol.

The airport is well connected to Malaga and the Costa del Sol’s most popular resorts and towns, but nothing beats the convenience of a pre-booked airport transfer, especially when you’re travelling as a family or group. Harried parents and holidaymakers keen to hit the beach as soon as possible can skip the queues for the buses, trains and taxis and hop straight into their pre-booked airport transfer of choice.

Yes, it’s more expensive (although less so when you compare the cost per head) but airport transfers from Malaga are quicker, easier and they deliver you directly to your accommodation. You won’t have to think about the price when you land either. The cost is set in stone when you book so there’s no need to haggle with drivers. Talk about a stress-free start to your holiday!

Pick from a private taxi, shared shuttle, minibus or coach. Once you’re in your airport transfer vehicle, it’s a blink-and-you-miss-it drive from Malaga airport to the MA-20 before you’re zooming along between the beaches, mountains and white-washed villages of the Costa del Sol.

If you’re heading to one of the sun-splashed beach resorts west of Malaga, such as Torremolinos, Benalmádena, Fuengirola and Marbella with its swanky Puerto Banús marina, you can save bucket loads of precious holiday time – and keep your blood pressure down – by pre-booking your airport transfer. For example, a private taxi takes about 35 minutes to reach Marbella – it’s a no-brainer when you consider the public transport alternative, which involves a change in Fuengirola and a journey time that’s over twice as long.

It’s the same story if you’re heading east from Malaga airport. There are limited peak-season direct buses from the airport to Nerja, and the journey time by public transport is inching towards the two-hour mark. A private transfer could drop you at your door in one hour. Yes, public transport is cheaper, but is the hassle really worth the penny-pinching?

Speaking of cost, there are ways to snap up cheap airport transfers. Shared shuttle buses are a good balance of budget, time and door-to-door convenience, while the more people you fit into a private transfer, the cheaper the cost per head. You can also find some bargain discounts when you compare airport transfer deals from TravelSupermarket’s directory of companies offering airport transfers from Malaga airport.
