Opting for car hire at Malaga Airport is an excellent option for independent travellers who want to get the most out of their trip. Having a private vehicle allows visitors the freedom to explore the city of Malaga and the enchanting Costa del Sol at their leisure without having to rely on public transportation. There are also a wide range of exciting daytrip destinations that can easily be reached by car from the southern Spanish city of Malaga, including the vibrant city of Torremolinos. The roads that run along the coastline near Malaga are exceptionally smooth and provide endless driving pleasure. There are also plenty of beaches here, where motorists can pause for a while to soak up the sun before climbing into their chosen vehicle once more.

Car hire at Malaga Airport is provided by a large number of internationally recognised car hire companies including Avis Auto Rental, Budget Rent-a-Car, Europcar, Hertz and Crown Car Hire. Rental desks can be found in both terminals 1 and 2 of the airport and the friendly staff that work their make the hire process smooth and simple.

Because there are such a large number of car hire booths at Malaga Airport prices tend to be very competitive, meaning that travellers who are prepared to take the time to shop around a little are sure to get a great deal. However, prices can vary dramatically between companies and vehicle models, so make sure that you don’t simply opt for the first deal you find.

The best way to ensure that you find quality car hire at Malaga Airport is to shop around. Most of the car hire companies that provide car hire at the airport provide websites, which allows motorists to reserve their choice of vehicle in advance.

Developers in Malaga province (home to the Costa del Sol) sold 10,000 new homes in the course of 2011, almost half the stock of 25,000 new homes on the market at the start of the year, according to the Association of Builders and Developers of Malaga (ACP).

Lower house prices have helped boost sales, and a huge drop in housing starts over the last 3 years, most acute in popular tourist resorts like Marbella, means that the housing glut is shrinking fast.

Given the long lead times in the building industry, there could be an acute shortage of new housing a couple of years from now.

Shortages will be made worse if demand recovers to its normal level of around 22,000 new homes a year, based on the size of the population. Unemployment or fear of unemployment is keeping many potential buyers out of the market.
