Useful information about the flight from Glasgow to Malaga

Malaga beaches and attractions

Malaga is one of the most popular spots in Spain for holidaymakers. Sitting right by the crystal waters of the Mediterranean and with a rich history dating back 2,800 years, it's not hard to see why.

A colourful city of processions and festivals

Festival time is when Malaga comes to life and the city enjoys several such events throughout the year. Easter sees the Holy Week processions, while on January 6th there is the Procession of the Three Kings. The second half of August sees a massive celebration take place with the Feria de Malaga, a party which goes on for nine days complete with fireworks.

Planning your trip - things to bear in mind

It helps to be prepared and know what to expect in Malaga. If you're planning to drive around the city, make sure you get your hire car booked well in advance and remember parking spaces in the centre tend to be at a premium. Don't drink and drive as the law is stricter than in the UK with the legal limit of blood alcohol level being 0.05% (0.25 mg/l). Learn a few key Spanish phrases - it's always appreciated, although English is widely spoken. Look out for the Menu del Dia offered in many restaurants, a budget three course meal served at midday with prices starting from €6. Many businesses still observe the siesta and shut from 2 to 5pm.

The cost of living is low in Malaga, with restaurant and grocery prices generally much lower than those in London. Set clocks an hour later on arrival.   

How to get around and where to stay

To get from the airport to central Malaga, it's only around €3 for a bus, €1.75 on the train and about €20 by taxi. Journey time is around 15 minutes. An airport bus to the Costa del Sol with a destination like Marbella is €6, and it's about €4 to the coastal resorts of Torremolinos and Benalmadena.

Around the centre, you can reach most major sites by foot. If you do get a bus, it's ca. €1.30 for a single trip, or get a rechargeable multi travel card. Taxis are quite pricey, especially on Saturdays, holidays and after 10pm. You can get a hotel for about €50 per person per night and hostel rates start at around €10.
