Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Málaga car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Málaga.
Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Málaga car rental.

If you want to discover the sights of Malaga and the rest of the Andalucía region, you need to rent a comfortable car that’s suitable for the inner city, motorway, and coastal driving. Whether you want to soak up the summer sun in a convertible or are staying in the heart of Malaga, a smaller car is advisable to travel around the narrower, older streets. However, if you want to take the rural roads to nearby villages, an SUV would be better suited to your journey.
