HOW TO GET TO THE APARTMENT FROM MALAGA AIRPORT:

Pre-booked taxi - about 60€ - 65€.  Lots of internet sites to pre-arrange this. 45-50 minutes ride depending on traffic..

Taxi on the meter - 60-70€ depending on time and day.

 

HIRE CAR: You really do not need a car in Marbella - the flat is very central and in walking distance of everything.  Most of the town has public parking garages but these become quite expensive if you leave the car for long periods. The side street in front of the apartment and the street going up the hill, as you turn off Ricardo Soriano, to the apartment, have unrestricted parking as do the two roads running down to the sea, but everywhere else is a meter zone. 

 

There is a local car rental  company a couple of doors away if you want to hire a car to visit Ronda, the Alhambra or Gibraltar. Eurocar - Hertz etc are within easy walking distance. There is motorbike, bike and scooter hire shop towards Corte Ingles department store and it's luxury supermarket.

 

Bus to Marbella - This route takes around 45  minutes and departs every half hour or so.  Costs from 6.15€ to 8.20€, plus booking fee, for a single fare. You can buy your tickets in advance online, at the ticket office at Malaga airport or by phone.

 

There is now also Mobile Boarding, so no need to print your ticket. When you book online, you will receive an SMS with all your details to show the driver. It is a bit of a hike from the Marbella bus depot so probably a 6/7€ taxi from the rank just outside the bus station to the apartment is preferable.

 

Malaga Airport to Marbella Bus timetable

The Avanza bus service in Marbella offers visitors and locals a reliable bus service across the Costa del Sol.  One of the most useful routes is the Malaga Airport - Marbella Bus station shuttle service.

These buses run like clockwork and are naturally a much cheaper alternative to a taxi costing from just €7.15 to €9.35 one way, depending if its a ''directo'' or not.  The "directo" bus travels on the toll road so it avoids much of the traffic on the slower coast road.  The service departs regularly from right outside arrivals in Malaga and then from the Marbella Bus station you can easily walk into the town centre or catch a taxi in the direction of your hotel, villa or apartment.  

To give you an idea of the price of a taxi onwards to my apartment in Ricardo Soriano is around 6-8 euro depending on pasengers and luggage etc....

At the Malaga Aiport end you no longer pay the driver you must buy your ticket from an office outside the arrivals hall.  As you come out into the forecourt you will see a meeting point in front of you where you can go to pay.  The ticket office is on your left in the corner.

 If you are departing from Marbella you purchase your ticket at the station. 

The journey time is just 40 minutes, longer if you don't take the direct option, and the buses are airconditioned so even in the hot summer months it is a comfortable ride.  They also now come with WIFI. My 60 year old parents are quite happy to use this service as well as me when fully loaded with cases and children so I can personally recommend it as a sensible option for most types of travellers.

  You can also book and pay for a ticket in advance if you wish using the AvanzaBus website.

There are also luggage lockers at the Marbella Bus station - two different sizes. They are on the right when you get off your bus and come into the bus station. You buy a token from a machine next to the lockers -one token costs 3€ and the other costs 4€.  You can leave your luggage there all day to go out and explore Marbella!  Make sure though that you take out everything that you need for the day, sunglasses, money, suntan lotion and so on because you cannot open your luggage locker twice! It will charge you to open the locker again if you try so don't get caught out.

If you prefer a more private means of transportation from the airport, Marbella Simply Shuttles offer transfers to Marbella, Call them on +34 600 946 117 or book online here.
