I enjoyed Pedrogalejo, very quaint seaside resort. But we found it quite expensive down by the beach and at restaurants.

Re: Credit card fees for car hire

Malagacar lets you use Debit Card or cash. They blocked 1300euros on mine last week, which I was not aware was going to happen. Didn't read small print obviously. They put it back in my bank a couple of days after I returned the car. It still has not come through to my account and is pending for two...

Re: Driving from Pruna to Seville airport

Er, just to let you know. I bottled it. Drove to Osuna. Got the train to Santa Justa. Spent some nice time in the city. When I went to get my train back to Osuna, my son got the airport bus outside the train station. Stress free

Re: Spanish residents getting married in UK

There are many institutions that couples inform once they are married eg, insurance companies for car, travel, home etc. Social Security and tax offices. Pension companies and many more.

Re: Malaga Airport Train Ticket Machine

The one I have got is for all routes. We got about a third off on the high speed trains off-peak. I bought them in the station at Seville.

Re: Malaga Airport Train Ticket Machine

Also you can get a Tarqueta Dorada (seniors discount ticket that lasts a year) if you are over 60). I have used it twice this year going from Seville to Malaga and once from Malaga to the airport and I don't even live in Spain.
