Hi ChrisWales,
The Toll roads I've used in Spain, just drive up to the "Manual" kiosk , fee is displayed on sign , can pay with a note and get change.

Pleasantly surprised last week as the R-4 toll has been reduced by circa 5€

The only Toll road I see on your drive is the AP-46

Could be avoided by using A-45...........but I would recommend the AP-46..............but then I'm a Toll Road man. :D

You dont need to use the Toll roads at all on this route. I think the only Toll section, which is optional, is just south of Antequera towards Malaga.
If you are using a GPS or mobile phone route planner, just put "avoid Tolls" in the options settings.

The only tricky bit is around Seville, however its well lit and if you follow the signs you will have no problems. Once out of Seville it is all dual carriageway and an easy drive. Make sure you follow the signs at Antequera towards Malaga. Dont worry, its an easy drive.

If you want to avoid the hassle of the city head north east on the A4 about 20km and then cut across to A92.
The distance more or less the same but you avoid confusion of city driving.
It is easier than going into town and picking A92 from the start.
The link route is SE 40.

Hi ChrisWales,
If you look at the Google MAP and woolie's route you will be driving on Motorway style roads .

The A4 does indeed bring you right into the city. What i am suggesting is take this route in the outward direction for about 10km.
Then use the SE 40 link route to get to A 92. I would you go on maps and just click on a point on this route, when you get to this point you can put in your final destination. I know there is an option to use interim points with maps but i never used this.
Be careful when you are putting in "avoid" as maps will bring you the shortest available route, sometimes it will bring you all over the place.
I was over there last week and i had in avoid motorways from a previous trip, i was all over the place until i realized something wrong.

I've got to be honest wollie, that sounds quite confusing. Would it be that bad just following google maps and going through the city?

If you are not familiar with the A45, and are driving at night, I would take the toll road south of Antequera. The A45 is very twisty & only 2 lanes, as well as a few stretches of 80 kph speed limits, whereas the toll road is 3 lanes, hardly any traffic & pretty much 120 kph all the way :-)

Hi ChrisWales,

Aeropuerto

A-4.................. Córdoba

SE-40............. A-92 Granada ...... Jn 526km

A-92 ..............Sevilla .....Málaga -- Granada

A-45 ............ Córdoba ..... Málaga....... jn152

AP-46 ........... E-15 A-7... Almería ....... Málaga (este) .........Toll

A-7 ..............285km Torrox....... A-340 Costa...... A-720 Competa

Do a bit of homework and pull up Google Maps and follow your route, also use "street view" to checkout whats on the signs above

If I was doing this journey my route card would a bit briefer

A-4.................. Córdoba

SE-40............. A-92 Granada

A-92 ...............Málaga -- Granada

A-45 ......... ..... Málaga.......

AP-46 ........... E-15 A-7... Almería .......

A-7 ..............285km Torrox ...... A-340 Costa...... A-720 Competa .

Enjoy your drive...........

I agree just switch on maps and fallow where it takes you as you clearly do not want advise from here...

Hello Chris, May I suggest that you book into a hotel near the airport and then set off when you are refreshed the next morning.
I assume that you will be in a rental car, so considering all the facts, with children, all tired, stressed and negotiating the route at night, in a strange car.....Just a suggestion.
Regards,
Gordon....
