Renting a car in Spain

Car – Rental cars are very inexpensive from the Malaga Airport and many other locations in Spain (excluding high season in July/August).  Do keep in mind that 90% of the rentals will be a stick shift (manual)  and likely a small car.  We always find the MPV to be the best deal for space, size, price.  They hold 5 people and loads of luggage.  We actually owned a Citroen Berlingo and loved it.  We often rent via Gold Car, but have found many other rental car deals using Easy Car.  We have rented a car for a few 28 day periods (not high season) for anywhere from €131 to €220 for the entire month!   Check prices today and just click on the image below:
