Getting Around in Marbella
When you arrive in the Costa Del Sol, the first thing you'll need to do is get from the airport to your destination. For 1-4 people, this is relatively easy, you can simply jump in a waiting taxi and negotiate the cost with the Spanish driver. Taxis are reasonably inexpensive, and you'll find a chart of rates at the airport so you should be able to get a reasonable idea of cost before even getting in a taxi. The majority of taxis will not be metered, in which case the driver will carry a booket of the official rates authorised by the local town hall. Be careful though, as supplements may apply, such as extra baggage, night service, etc so it would be wise to clarify the price in advance as unscrupulous taxi drivers have been known to charge more to unsuspecting tourists.
If you are travelling in a larger group or if you wish to be certain you will have a vehicle waiting for you on your arrival then you can book with a private hire operator, such as Club Tours Marbella, who operate a minibus airport transfer service. The rates are competitive, they are English run and can offer travel for up to 8 passengers with plenty of room for luggage, golf clubs etc. Visit their website at www.clubtoursmarbella.com
