The strike could be extended to the entire national territory

The strike that started in Malaga could be extended to all the national territory. This situation occurs as a complain to other transport services like Cabify or Uber. Taxis are on a war footing after they knew those services were going to expand their fleet during the Malaga fair week. Now they are asking for total exclusivity during the days of greater demand.

Those who have chosen an alternative means of transport do not have to worry. This strike will not affect them.

What to do if you need a taxi in Malaga and there is a strike?

Many of those who arrived at night to Malaga airport were unable to use any means of transport after the last bus and train departed from the terminal.

Those without planning their transport in advance have found that there were no options for transport on arrival. Some of those visitors had to wait for the first train that stops at the airport at 5:30 am.

The airport is one of the major affected by this strike. If you planned to use a taxi we recommend to rent a car or book a Malaga airport transfer instead so you can have peace of mind. Transfers are available for any kind of service, so if you want to visit the fair or going anywhere else you can check the price and book online.
