“We first hired a car from you in 2001 and since then I have hired from you forty three times and only once hired from another hire firm. Unfortunately our experience with the other hire company was very poor - the hire car overheated in about thirty minutes just past Marbella and about two hours later we got a re-placement car. We have never hired from another company since then.”

My first time renting a car on vacation. This company really deserve it reviews. The company and the staff are very professional and service minded. It so simple and easy and everything went really smoothly and quick, from arrival to departure. I paid for the super excess waiver and felt so relaxed when the lady at the desk said "You can do whatever you like now but don't drive it from a cliff" I.e you can feel calm and relaxed that anything that might happen with the car - it's okay, we will handle it.

Good service, no quibbles about the condition of the car and any scuffs were already marked on the paperwork prior to handover. Nice car and appreciated the upgrade to an SUV for driving up some steep hilly tracks.
Simple, fuss free, and wallet friendly. A true example of what car hire should be. Easy to hire, easy to drop off, and fair and honest pricing and policies... Brilliant... See you next year

What to see in Andalusia
Andalusia is a unique destination to explore and with a hire car it’s easy to drive around and custom-made your trip. The Spanish cities Granada, Cordoba and Seville are just a few hours’ drive from Malaga with good road connections.
In Granada, the Alhambra Palace and Generalife gardens are a must to see. It´s necessary to book the entrance ticket in advance in order to access the Nazari Palace. Cordoba has an impressive cathedral and Mezquita, which is on UNESCO's World Heritage List, and not to forget the old quarter of the city with flower courtyards. It´s recommended parking the car outside the city centre and walking into town as the streets are narrow and it´s very difficult to park.
Seville is located close to Cordoba and worth a visit are the Plaza de España, Alcazar Palace, the Cathedral and Giralda.
Andalusia also has the finest beaches along the coast. In the Cadiz area you will find white sandy beaches and with the right wind conditions, it´s a paradise for surfers and kiters.
