Transportation from the airport to the hotel with kids

When it comes to traveling to the hotel with kids, the best transportation option will depend on your needs:

Public transport with kids: Yes or no?

If you choose the bus or the train, you should make sure that there is a stop near the hotel. Traveling with kids and luggage can be quite tedious. If you need more information, we have a comprehensive guide to buses and trains from the airport .

Rental car for family vacations

A rental car at Malaga airport is a recommended option, you will have mobility and you can enjoy your holidays with kids to the fullest. There are many events and activities around the province throughout the year that you won’t want to miss.

Taxis and transfers from the airport with kids

When you travel with kids, a private transfer is undoubtedly a way to take a great weight off our shoulders. If you can’t rent a car, either because you don’t have a driving license or because you just don’t feel like doing it, the most recommended and comfortable option may be a transfer from the airport .

They will pick you up at the airport or hotel at the time and day you choose; don’t forget to include child seats during the booking process.
