You pay a fixed price, avoid the queues and can rely on a comfortable journey door-to-door.


If you have been travelling in the region or indeed in other parts of Spain, you might arrive into Málaga by bus. The main bus station (Estación de Autobuses) is just opposite the train station, which is located on Paseo de los Tilos about a kilometre from the centre of the city. Most of the regional buses, however, come and go from the Muelle Heredia bus station located on Avenida de Manuel Agustin Heredia.

If you arrive by bus, don’t forget that we offer private or shared transfers from the bus station to your final destination in the region too.
