FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
How I can make a malaga rent a car reservation?
Reservations can be made directly on our website, or via telephone.
Do you charge me for fuel?
No, we do not charge you for fuel. Our trade policy is different, we will deliver the car with a certain amount of fuel in the tank and you must return the car with the same amount of fuel. There are other malaga airport car rental companies do charge for fuel.
What exactly does the malaga airport car rental insurance cover?
We have three types of insurance:
Basic: Liability insurance covers up to 50 million euros. The damage caused by our clients to other vehicles is covered. However, the insurance does not cover any damage caused to the car by the client. The customer is responsible for everything that happens to the vehicle.
Basic + Excess: Full insurance with a premium equal to the deposit that is left when you hire the vehicle. This type of insurance covers accidents, all damages caused to third parties and covers the customer for damages up to the amount of the deposit left. For example, if the damage to the rental vehicle reaches a total of 800 € and the premium is 200 € the customer would only have to pay 200 €, the same amount of the deposit.
Total: This is the most comprehensive insurance and covers any damage to the vehicle without excess. Windows and wheels are covered.
We hope that this is clear, but if you have any questions please contact us.
