KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Nerja

  • Arranging car hire in Nerja will give you the freedom and independence to explore Spain's famed Costa del Sol region. You can visit the tourist attractions in the region, like the Cueva de Nerja cavern in the nearby Maro hills, with its palaeolithic-age paintings. Or travel a few miles away to the Iron Age necropolis of Cerillo de las Sombras. You can also drive a bit further afield to towns like Almuñecar, with its wide variety of botanical gardens. Hiring a car allows you to plan your own itinerary without having to rely on public transport schedules.
  • The nearest airport to find car hire in Nerja is Málaga-Costa del Sol Airport (AGP). Many of the most well-known car hire brands have branches here, as well as a good few local providers. The majority of them are located in Terminal 2. To reach them from the Arrivals hall, follow the signs to the ramp that will take you to the lower level of the airport. Others are situated outside the main terminal building, on Avenida García Morato. This road runs parallel to the building, and courtesy buses will take you there.
  • First and foremost, remember that Nerja is a very popular and busy tourist town, especially during the European summer months. So drive carefully, and keep a sharp eye out for pedestrians exploring the centre of town or walking to one of its beaches. You'll also need to adjust to driving on the right side of the road. If the road has double white lines, it's illegal to cross them for any reason, and you'll be fined on the spot if the police see you doing this.
  • Nerja's roads are generally in good condition, so you won't experience any issues on that front. Traffic circles can be a bit hazardous, as the locals don't always adhere to the regulations. Watch out for drivers in the inside lane suddenly crossing in front of you to take an exit. Driving in the Old Town district is pretty much impossible, due to the narrow streets, so it's best to park outside the neighbourhood and walk there.
  • Book your car hire in Nerja at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini car hire in Nerja are around 48% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Nerja?

    The centre of Nerja and its main tourist areas can get very congested during the summer holiday season. If that's when you're visiting, and you intend to spend most of your time in the resort town, choose a compact city car for the best convenience. If you need something bigger, choose an SUV. These are manoeuvrable in the town and also make great vehicles for road trips to other attractions. You might want to consider an automatic as your Nerja car hire choice. This will make it easier to adjust to driving on the right, rather than changing gears with your unfamiliar hand.

  • What's the speed limit in Nerja?

    The town has the same speed limits as the rest of Spain, and a daily police helicopter monitors traffic to identify speeding vehicles. Bear this in mind when booking car hire in Nerja, lest you incur a heavy fine. There are a variety of speed limits with good signage. You can drive at 50 km/h (about 30 mph) on double carriageways, dropping to 30 km/h (roughly 19 mph) on single lane roads. Be careful to note that when the pavement is on the same level as the road, the limit is reduced to 20 km/h (about 12 mph).

  • Where are the best places to park in Nerja?

    While parking won't present problems in winter, it's totally different in tourist season, when the town is much busier. Your best bet is to head to what's known locally as "the dust bowl". This is a large free parking area in Calle Avda Pescia, near the central Nerja bus stop. On the eastern side of town, near its main beaches, you can park at the underground car park on Calle Filipinas. It costs around €10 (£8.50) for six hours.
