Is it cheaper to pre-book a taxi from Malaga Airport?
Pre-booking a taxi can be cheaper than getting a taxi at the Malaga Airport taxi rank. With a pre-booked transfer, you can choose a vehicle suited to your needs and the number of people you are travelling with. For example, if you are travelling with only one other person, you can choose an economy taxi for a maximum of 2 passengers for a great price. If you are travelling in a larger group, you have the option of booking a minibus, which works out much cheaper than taking several taxis.

SolHoP provides great service. When we arrived, the driver waited for us even if we were late. And when we drove back to airport, the driver arrived on time. The customer service responses through email were also very quick and they answered all my questions promptly and thoroughly. We will use this service again when we return.

Great service and reservation follow up to go from city center to Malaga airport Driver in perfect time and very kind!
We were 5 people (inc. 3 kids) traveling from the center of Madrid to the Madrid airport. Given we had an early morning flight back to the U.S., we booked this taxi transfer. Booking was easy. The driver was very professional, on time, and the vehicle was very comfortable. I am glad we chose this service for an easy transfer at the beginning of a long journey home.
The driver was really professional and I was delayed due to luggage issues so I called him and he waited patiently for me. The car provided was an upgrade and a nice surprise and the ride back was smooth. Nice welcome and fluent in english
We were 5 people travelling from our hotel in Granda to a hotel in Malaga. The booking process and journey were both very comfortable. The vehicle was on time and the driver was very professional and courteous. The 7 seater van was also of luxury class ( Mercedes).
