Car hire in Mijas

There are different ways of public transport from Malaga airport to Mijas. You can take the bus, a taxi or the train which leaves you in the center of Fuengirola. Another option is to rent a car at Malaga airport. This will give you the freedom to go as you please and is very convenient if you stay in popular urbanisations in Mijas like Valtocado, Las Lomas de Mijas, Miraflores, La Cala or Calahonda.


Car hire prices in Malaga are very reasonable, but it is important to have a look at the small print and compare the rental conditions before you book in order to avoid unpleasant surprises when you collect your rental car.

Most price comparison websites will announce ‘no hidden extras’, but fact is, that most people will find themselves with a much higher bill than expected. If you are spending your holidays in Mijas and are planning to book car hire in Mijas make sure to do a price comparison and check at least the following:

petrol policy

Many car hire companies in Malaga apply a full-empty policy:  Cars are delivered with a full tank of fuel that must be prepaid at time of rental and there is no refunds for unused fuel. The price of a full tank depends on the specific vehicle make and model, the type of fuel and the fuel daily rates. With this policy car hire companies in Spain earn some extra money, because the fuel charge covers both the fuel cost plus a refueling charge and possible service costs.

optional insurances

Most companies in Spain offer a fully inclusive insurance in case of accidents, but the insurance cover excludes damages to wheels, tires (including punctures), mirrors, windows, locks, antenna, battery, clutch and some insurances don’t even cover towing expenses or taxi bills arising from road assistance requests by the customer.

As a general rule, any damages to the rental car are covered by the optional insurance except when there is customer negligence. Examples of customer negligence are driving under the effects of alcohol or drugs, driving in unauthorized roads, refueling the vehicle with the wrong type of fuel, traffic fines, lost keys, loss or damage to vehicle equipment such as child seats, GPS, or any other detachable element of the rental vehicle.
