Re: Ancestry search

It is quite a way inland from Malaga. Inland rural. You could stay in the village or one of the surrounding villages to use as a base. It is quite near the beautiful town of Ronda. Let us know how you get on

Re: Car Hire- Malaga or Gibraltar Airports

Just back from Spain. Chris is a very nice honest man. He met us at the airport. We went to his place (behind Malagacar) and filled out contract. We had already done all the personal ID questions before we went, passport number, licence info etc. He is very cautious himself. We picked up the automat...

Re: TRAINS

I see that Spain is to reduce its AVE train fares. Piloting Madrid to Barcelona from April as not enough folk using them due to air fares being cheaper. Intend to roll out if this is successful

Re: Car Hire- Malaga or Gibraltar Airports

Than you Pensure1988. Been in contact. My sister and I are coming over for a week at New Year. We have booked a Corsa automatic for £170. £140 plus £30 fuel. I use my own annual excess insurance. We pay when we get the car.

Re: Car Hire- Malaga or Gibraltar Airports

Agree their is no prices or booking form. I have emailed them re this. I await their reply. Would be great if it was legit.
I have found Helle Hollis to be honest but a bit expensive. They do have a holiday home owners club where you can get some discount though

Re: Manuel Chaves - Guilty

I take it there are more trials from the other divisions of this still to come. Does any of the corruption money ever get recovered? Yes, I agree the crimes were worse than the Catalans and they deserved higher sentences and should have been banned from public office for life.

Re: interesting neighbourhoods in Malaga city area and beyond

Elusive. i agree Goldcar at airports and plenty other hire companies at airports are really bad. Had lots of bad experiences. That's why didn't hire at airport those times. Too much hassle. but we wanted to make a couple of trips and the downtown office was a completely different experience.

Re: interesting neighbourhoods in Malaga city area and beyond

El Chorro (Caminito del Rei). There is a train station there but you would need to check train times. Ronda is lovely and worth a visit. Buses go from Malaga I think. Antequera. There are plenty of museums and galleries in the region. Malaga has a big tourist info office. Twice when I have been in M...

I have used trains fro Malaga to Seville a few times. I went to the customer services office and as I am a pensionser I received a Tarqueta Dorada, a discount card which lasts a year. There are restrictions

I enjoyed Pedrogalejo, very quaint seaside resort. But we found it quite expensive down by the beach and at restaurants.

Re: Credit card fees for car hire

Malagacar lets you use Debit Card or cash. They blocked 1300euros on mine last week, which I was not aware was going to happen. Didn't read small print obviously. They put it back in my bank a couple of days after I returned the car. It still has not come through to my account and is pending for two...
