From the airport to the centre of Málaga in no time!

Published April 24 2023

Málaga is a well-connected city when it comes to public transportation, so going from the airport to the city is easier than you might expect. You actually have different options depending on where you’re staying and personal preferences.

Train: You can take the train at Terminal 3 and it’s the cheapest option to get to the city centre. The train line you will have to take is C1. There’s a train every 20 minutes, from 6:10 am to 12:20 am; it takes around 10 minutes to get to the centre of Málaga. The ticket costs 1.80€ for an individual trip and it will take you to Estación Centro Alameda or Alameda Centre Station.

Bus: The line A Express will take you from the Terminal 3 at the airport to the city centre. In just 15 minutes you will reach the centre of Málaga for just 4€, which you can pay directly to the bus driver in cash. These buses are operative 24 hours of the day with a frequency of 25-30 minutes. The stops in the centre are the following: Alameda Central, Plaza del General Torrijos y Plaza de la Marina.

Taxi: A more expensive option, but more comfortable and better if your accommodation is far away from any of the public transportation stops in the centre. The price for a taxi depends on where your destination is, but it is usually around 20-25€.

Rental cars: If you want the freedom of moving in and out of the city, renting a car is the best option. There are many car rentals in the airport, but the most common ones and with great reviews are OK Mobility or Europcar. They have a wide selection of vehicles, so you can find a big and comfortable one for your family. The price may vary depending on the vehicle, brand and dates of your trip. Remember that you have to return the car to the same place you got it from.
