Sixt Services in Malaga

Our Malaga rental fleet is designed to suit every visitor, whether you are travelling for business or leisure and whatever your group size and budget.

Beautiful coastal roads run through Malaga and there is no better way to cruise these than in the luxury of a sports car or convertible.

The Sixt fleet contains premium brands such as models from BMW, Porsche, Audi and Mercedes-Benz. Malaga contains a sometimes bewildering mix of narrow cobbled streets, but when you hire a car with a Sat Nav city-centre driving is easy.

Sixt Tip: The Unique Coffee Culture of Malaga

If you find choosing between coffee options difficult in the UK then you will find ordering coffee in Malaga a unique and challenging experience. Malaga is famous for having one of the longest lists of coffee types in Spain, if not Europe. Make it less challenging by taking your coffee break in Central Cafe on Constitution Square. Its tiled wall gives pictures and names, so just point at your choice. Drink it like the locals in a glass rather than a cup. Malaga Cathedral, just a short walk away, is one of the city's best-known landmarks and also unique: never fully finished, the cathedral is still missing one of its towers.

To enjoy a panoramic view of the city with its sparkling blue bay and the recently revitalised port and dock areas, head up the hill in your Malaga car rental to the Gibralfaro Castle.

The weird and wonderful architecture is at its best when lit up after sunset.
