Car rental prices from Malaga airport

Can your rental car price really be true?

Well its time to have a look at what seems to be great prices online, but really masked over with the Terms and Conditions when you arrive. Who honestly is looking into there car rental company contract before they travel and who is going to be another victim when they arrive on holiday? This question could be the answer to a successful start to your holiday or the main conversation for your vacation period!

Fuel Charges: This is a good place to start with an increment to your cost to add a fueling charge from 30€ plus the cost of the fuel, normally at around 1.60€ per litre for a full tank of fuel at 50 litres (this is a 3rd more expensive than the normal cost per litre). This would be a grand total of 110.00€ to add to your rental price, if you refuel the car before returning it they will refund the difference of what you spend. You will probably only get about 50€ maximum of fuel back in the tank, which means you have given them 60€ for WHAT!  The crazy part is that 85% of clients do not see this in time and once you have arrived, it’s to late to cancel! See image below to show a screen shot of fuel policy conditions.


Insurance: Most car rental companies have the basic insurance policy which only covers the third party full and the main driver will be required to leave substantial deposit, normally around 1,100€. In any case of damage to the vehicle this deposit is at their disposal to use for the repairs. Most car rental companies will use top end dealerships for the repairs under contract, this way they can charge the highest rate from the deposit and they are not at liberty to supply you with a receipt. Along with administration fees you can nearly lose 50% of your deposit for a scratch to a door panel.

Taking out any of the other insurances covering a medium to full policy can cost you and extra 8/ 12€ per day, with additional 56€ plus to your car rental total (this is based on a 7 day rental).

Child Car Seats: For families this has to be the worst business behavior for me, that your child is not as important as the car. What do I mean by this? When you book a car with most online car rental companies, you choose the car and then you add the extras i.e. Sat Nat, Child Car Seats, etc. these items are tagged on to the booking as a separate item (insignificant to the car rental company) you then normally pay part or all of the booking. These items are only quoted for at this point. Once you arrive for your car rental, because these are not items under contract with the car they may not be available, this leaves you with a car and no child car seat. If they are available then the prices can be extortionate! If you take the prices from the image below for a 1 week rental, this will total from 50.82€ to 86.03€ per seat.


Extra Driver: Another way for you to spend another 8/12€ per day for the safety of having the optional driver, when if you have one of the optional insurance policies this is included. Check the terms with the policy for the full insurance option before committing to pay for this. Tots Store car rental include the the second driver with the Full insurance policy (see our Terms and Conditions).

Queuing: This could be the worst start to your holiday having to start by linking on to a 3 to 4 hour queues to wait to collect your rental car. With very insufficient information of where to collect your car once you arrive, especially with the comparison car rental websites, they have created another way for you to pay between 50 / 70€ for express process. Waiting in an airport with a child or children for another 2 hours plus after a flight and early start can not be a fun start to your holiday! We have heard of customers waiting in the wrong queue for over an hour and then upon reaching the desk, told that in order to process the order it would cost the client 55€ extra for standing in the shorter queue for Speedy Process! Or the client would need to rejoin the longer queue, which was now at approximately 4 hours.



Tots Store Car rental service has put a stop to all this nonsense providing you with a complete vehicle and children equipment rental service. The price is what it says, this does not increase once you have agreed. These are some of the benefits you will receive with this service:

  • Advice on vehicle size for rental.
  • Personally met on arrival at the airport.
  • Escorted to your vehicle parked outside the Terminal doors.
  • NO long queues, no shuttle bus service or waiting in office for your vehicle.
  • Tots Store products will be in the vehicle.
  • On return, bring the vehicle to the same place outside the departures.
  • NO unfair fuel prices. Return the vehicle with same fuel level.
  • Leave the Tots Store products in the vehicle for us to retrieve.
  • This has to be the no hassle way!

Great car hire with quality child seats

4 5 1
We recently used Tots Store for child seat and car hire. We were experiencing problems with car rental companies at Malaga Airport and we were concerned about the quality of car seats they provided. We decided to use the Tots Store car hire service as the car seats were already fitted in the cars for when we arrived and we didn't have to queue with everyone else hiring cars. We were met promptly by Richard and his colleague from the car hire company, Richard had cold bottled water for us all which was very welcome, especially for the little ones. We were taken quickly to the cars which were better models than expected, and the child seats were already fitted and of very good quality. I would have given five stars if the cost had been slightly more competitive, and if we were given a little bit longer to get our bearings once in the cars (we were rushed out of the car park as the parking ticket was about to expire!). But all in all a great service, we were very happy with everything and we will use the service again if we return to Malaga.

Fantastic Service Summer 2017

We travelled to Malaga with our two boys and needed a car with seats and space for our luggage to reach our hotel in Roquetas de Mar. We did get picked up right at the arrival and 10minutes later we did drive off with happy faces and a chilled water bottle. Registration and services at the airport were easy and simple just the way you need them when travelling with kids. Also the pricing is highly competitive once you need child seats, especially if you find out your car has been upgraded to a bmw with no additional cost 😉 Highly recommended and yes I will recommend you to our friends.

Combined Car and accessories hire

having recently used the new car hire service with Tots store, i think this is a greta addition to their services. We had previously used them for car seat hire, so we had the utmost confidence that the products would be in great condition and as advertised. The whole process was extremely efficient, no long queues or lengthy rental agreement processes; we were in our car in approx 20 minutes. The cars were in good condition, clean and the other tots store products we hired were installed in the car when we collected. I would not hesitate to use this service again in the future. For a family travelling with children, the convenience, speed and cost of the service is a winning combination.

This is an excellent service

The idea is excellent , provide things that people need at not too inflated price ,but above ALL make it easy to access . This company does that and does it well . Have you ever tried placing hired car seast onto a hire car ( as they are not "allowed "to fit them for you ). In the heat of the day and an unfamilar car seat is the last thing you want at the start of a relaxing holiday with the family ( lets be straight , its nvver going to be relaxing but you might as well make it as pleasurable as you can ). We done for being at Malaga . Its a pity you cant be at Rome , Barcalona, Paris and other places we fly to . Thank you

I most certainly will use this service again. Thank you. First class from quality of item (baby car seat isofix) to customer service .

Superb holiday hire

We travelled to Marbella last September with a 3 year old and 3 months old and it was a massive helping hiring all the baby equipment as well as the hire car. Richard was most helpful prior with any question I had and met us at the airport with our car and essential equipment that we needed. This was much quicker than hiring a normal hire car ad we were pretty much straight out the airport saving us time having to go to the basement. We were met later that day at our apartment with the rest of our baby equipment. I would have no doubt or hesitation on using Richard again as it was a smooth process and helps your holiday by being equipped for the children.

Fab fab fab!

Good communication from start to finish. Great to get the children's car seats already installed. Staff met us on arrival, took us to the cars nearby and got us off on our way within minutes. We were even upgraded so we had two brand new BMW X1's for the week. Thanks guys - it was the perfect start to our holiday in Spain.
