 Bus from Malaga Airport to  Marbella bus station


The Avanza bus service in Marbella runs coaches between . 

Malaga Airport - Marbella Bus station 

These buses cheaper alternative to a taxi costing from just 6.15 one way. 

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 catch a taxi to the apartment.  The taxi cost is

approx 11 - 14 during the day and after 10pm and over the weekends and holidays

it costs around 15.

At Malaga Airport 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 air-conditioned so even in the hot summer months it is a comfortable ride.  

The buses have  WIFI.

 Shuttle Service


Shuttle direct offers a variety of options taking you from Malaga Airport to the apartment

with a range of prices and options




Taxi Transfers


Taxis at Malaga Airport are about the same price as ordering a transfer

EMAIL for transfer order form.

 The transfer service includes being met by an English speaking driver, helped 

with your luggage to the car, taking you are directly to the apartment.

 And finally the driver will will have your keys and will assist you 

with your bags and any questions you may have


The prices quoted are for return journeys

170 euros for  1 - 4 persons

 230 euros for   5 - 7 persons

   290 euros for  9 - 13 persons

I would not recommend relying on local taxis especially after dark

 firstly many of the drivers are from Malaga

and will not know the apartment, and secondly you will have to trust them

to wait with your cases if you have to collect collect the keys.


If you choose to book online the Hotel Hoppa service it

 is a cheaper option but  check first it is a door to door service.

The cheapest option is a shared service and could take a long route

to your stopping place




Hiring a car to get to your holiday apartment is a great option.

The 45 minute journey from Malaga airport is very straightforward and 

often the same price or less to hire for a week then the cost of return transfers.

Also a car can be useful for any trips you may like to make. 

see our tourist information page for ideas.


We always go with a no deposit pay on arrival company, beware some companies

hit you with hidden costs at pick up and your 'bargain' disappears.


We have tried many companies over the years and now find

on this link Car hire pay on arrival the best option

They are very efficient and quick with reasonable rates good cars and 

hardly any queues, unlike some companies operating out of the terminal,

(we have seen queues of 50 families out of season!)

When returning usually they take you and your luggage

straight from the nearby office to the terminal in your car, if practical, or

if not their regular shuttle bus

You can also use Gibralter airport which is about 55 minutes drive away.
