Outside of the above times transfer to and from Malaga airport is
available as an optional extra at the following cost:
Malaga - approx €90 per taxi each way. Wherever possible we will coordinate taxi sharing to keep costs down unless requested otherwise. Please see below for other options or contact us to discuss alternatives (e.g. mini bus / coach for larger groups).
