You can buy a 12 month pass for €500. Seems alot just to pose around the port. Anybody can get one, you do not need premises in the port.

If you are a tourist and are in a hire car they will accept your rental document as ID. They assume you must have shown your passport when you hired.

I used to buy samsonite but i think baggage handlers get a kick out of damaging expensive luggage. I now buy cheap soft cases and never have a problem. you see the handlers playing catch and dropping the expensive cases if you look out of the departure lounge at Malaga.
