We recently hired a transfer from Malaga to Seville. We had taken a plane to Malaga airport and we wanted to combine our stay on the Costa del Sol as well with some andalusian culture. Before leaving, we spent quite some time trying to figure out the best means to get to Seville from Malaga.
Here is our research. The means of transport to go from Malaga city to Seville are by train, bus, car hire or transfer. That´s it. Now, the distance between the two cities is only 200 km (124 miles).
The bus is not really advisable, except you have plenty of time or need to do some budget travelling, as it takes 4 ½ hours to bring you to Seville. As well it takes the routes through the mountains; so if you have a good stomach to stand the many curves, you will be rewarded with stunning landscapes!
For some unknown reason, the railway system between Malaga and Seville has not been renovated yet and so there are no fast trains running on this route. The result is that it takes nearly three hours to get there. The price is not very cheap either: About 50 € a return ticket for one person. So, if you are travelling more people, a car hire or a transfer comes even cheaper. This is what we did this time. We used a transfer from Malaga airport to Seville. The service was very professional and swift, we didn´t have to worry about getting to Malaga city for the train and the motorway starts right next to the airport. It was a good experience and I can recommend it; the next time though we come to Malaga we will hire a car ourselves, as we found out how nice it would be to stopover wherever we wanted to, which is not really possible with a transfer.
