From Sunday 15th has started the implementation of taxi meters with new rates for the use of public taxi in the town of Fuengirola, equalling prices with the municipalities of Mijas, Benalmadena and Torremolinos.
Summary of new prices for public taxis:
From now on the minimum price of a taxi is 4.60 Euros.
If you want to be picked up at your place of residence the surcharge is 1.20 Euros.
When the freight is more than two suitcases the surcharge is 1.20 Euros.
Some older supplements have been eliminated, such as the surcharge during the Fair, so taking a taxi during the celebrations is no longer more expensive.
All customers are entitled to their receipt once the journey is complete.
These reforms in the public transport sector aim to simplify the fee in benefit of the user, a move that comes after the rise of other services like blablacar.es and Uber.com which are earning popularity and consist in sharing costs and transportation.
Other transportation options
You can hire through Internet taxis at a set price; as an example we have taken some fees for transfers from Malaga Airport to the following destinations:
- From Malaga Airport to Fuengirola for 35,50 €
- From the airport to Marbella for 66,50 €
- From the airport to Mijas Costa for 52,50 €
- From Malaga to Granada for 159,50 €
Other transportation options include minibuses for larger groups which can result in a fairly reasonable price as the expenditure is shared between several people.
You can take a look at our section of Malaga airport transfers with links to reliable websites offering this service.
Taxis are ideal for infrequent transfers, but if we need a means of daily transport during holidays it may be more advisable to rent a car in Malaga from just 25 € per week; depending on the vehicle and the dates chosen the final price may vary.
