Malaga Car Hire – Avis

I’d booked my car hire for Malaga with Avis and chose the Medium: Intermediate range, as I was happy with a VW Golf/Audi A3 size car and the features they had.

I arrived at Malaga airport and went to the Avis desk and was told I had been upgraded – yippee!  Sadly, I’d been upgraded to a people carrier – a Vauxhall Zafira. 

As there were only the two of us it was quite big for our needs and with a visit planned for Gibraltar, I was wondering how to get this thing through the narrow streets of Gibraltar.

Unfortunately, there were only very smaller and much more basic cars available from Avis and has I’d prepaid there would be no refund available.

The Vauxhall Zafira was ok to be honest and was pretty good on petrol.  It was nice to have plenty of room for the shopping and suitcases etc.  It would’ve have been ideal for a family of 4 say, with all their ‘extras’.

I paid £150 for 7 days with Avis, so just over £20 per day wasn’t bad at all and enabled us to get to see more of Nerja and indeed Spain and Gibraltar.

I’d rent again with Avis, but next time try and get them to guarentee their cars or maybe I was too picky?
