Car hire next week

Postby gruff » Thu Apr 06, 2017 1:05 pm

I'm coming to Malaga next Tuesday for 2 weeks. I "always" rent a car through Malagacar.com but it appears that all the rental companies know how to charge over Easter and it is going to cost me 224 euros. I've just done a general search and found I can get one through Marbesol for 144 euros. A big difference. As a regular client of Malagacar I don't have to put a deposit down but even so it is not going to add that much to the Marbesol price. Any fors and againsts for Marbesol please?

Ashtondav has just posted about them on the Travel board - I hadn't noticed one in the Amigos Lounge earlier, but I've yet to look this evening....

I've seen some poor recent reviews about Marbesol on Trip Advisor.
i can do without the hassle so I'm going to bite the bullet and stick with Malagacar.
