How to avoid additional charges when hiring a car

Understanding the pricing of car hire companies is the basis of a successful service. However, many customers who rent through brokers and external agencies can be often misled. At the end of the day, it is the terms and prices of the car rental company that apply. In this article, we want to offer a thorough explanation of Marbesol’s prices and conditions for avoid additional charges when hiring a car.

Car hire is clearly one of the most practical solutions for discovering any part of the world. It gives you full independence and allows you to manage your own budget as you wish. There are however some cases in which the final price can increase, for instance: a delayed return, a traffic incident, insufficient cleaning or returning the vehicle without refuelling.

Despite the variety of car rental companies based at Malaga airport, there are significant differences in the offered services. For this reason, the Marbesol team insists in explaining the service terms upon arrival.

What does Marbesol have to offer?

Marbesol is a car rental company offering a wide selection of car models and prices. Thanks to this, every driver can pick the most suitable combination for the planned journey. To be exact, the offices of Marbesol are located a few minutes away from the airport terminal in Malaga. Compared to other companies which are right beside the terminal, Marbesol offers cheaper prices and a courtesy transport to save this gap. Besides, escaping the crowds at the airport can be seen as an advantage when parking or returning the car.

An overview of our fares and prices

The number of services that are included in your booking depends on the type of package you buy.

  • Basic Package:

The basic tariff seems very attractive because of the lower price, but it’s not always the most recommendable choice. Especially for those who plan a long trip or tend to drive roughly, it’s not the safest one.

First of all, you only get the most basic insurance, which means any damages to the car or even a flat tyre will be charged separately. Road assistance is not included either. But most importantly, this package does not include the fuel in the price. So once you arrive at the office, you will also have to pay to fill the deposit.

  • “Plus” Package:

This fare does include some additional services, as for example road assistance, theft coverage and the full-to-full policy. But in the event of a car breakdown, the customer is liable for the extra costs, which can turn out to be higher than the price of the all inclusive package.

  • “All Inclusive” Package:

The all-inclusive package is clearly the safest one, since it gives the customer full coverage.
It also includes the full-to-full policy with unlimited mileage, a free additional driver, free GPS and a price reduction on baby seats. In short, if you are running on a low budget and are a careful driver, the basic or plus package may be an option. But if you want to play it safe, our team highly recommends booking the all inclusive package.

At the airport, customers who have booked ‘all inclusive’ will also benefit from priority check-in thanks to the Express Desk. At this point, you will be requested to show your ID and a driving license which is valid in Spain.

Once you go online and visit our website, remember to check the services included in each package and take your time to read the service terms. Regular clients can benefit from a variety discounts for visiting the Costa del Sol by signing up for the Marbesol Club.
