Of course, you don’t need to catch a cheap Malaga flight. If you don’t like the idea of air travel or just prefer the scenic rewards of slow travel, the best way to tackle a journey to Malaga is to drive down the west coast of France, past Bordeaux.
After crossing the border into Spain, you’ll pass through San Sebastian, and then onto Madrid before hitting Toledo in the Spanish heartland. In total, it will take around three days with overnight stops, though you can cut this down to one if you’re sharing the driving with friends and travel non-stop.
Alternatively, the train through Europe is much faster, though a bit dearer. From the UK, take the Eurostar to Paris and then catch connecting trains via Barcelona and Madrid before arriving in Malaga a day later.
It might sound arduous but you can do it in style if you buy a first-class ticket, take your time and chill out for the duration. The holiday starts as soon as you’re on that train.
The train journey will mean staying overnight in either Paris or Barcelona (what a chore!) before catching a connecting train. Cost-wise, you’re looking at £200 and upwards for a ticket. Fares will vary but booking in advance (up to 120 days before departure) will net you the best prices.
