Driving a rental car in Malaga

All driver's licenses issued in the European Union are valid in Spain. In Spain, it is only necessary to pay a toll on motorways. Tolls are collected at toll gates and the amount depends on the category of the vehicle and the length of the journey. There is no need to buy a toll sticker. You can pay with cash or use your credit card. It is also possible to use a payment system, known as "Via-T", which allows you to pass through toll gates without stopping. However, it is only really suitable for those who frequently drive in Spain. The average price while driving a rental car is € 9.5/100 km.

What should I consider when driving a rental car in Malaga?

The legal limit of blood alcohol concentration in Spain is 0.05% (breath alcohol content: 0.25 mg/l), and 0.03% (breath alcohol content: 0.15 mg/l) for drivers with less than two years of experience. Exceeding this limit may lead not only to a high fine, but also to a driver being arrested and taken to the nearest police station. The driver and any passengers occupying the front and rear seats of the vehicle are all required to wear seatbelts. Law enforcement officers can fine a driver or passenger for not wearing a seat belt with a ticket of about 90 Dollars per person. If you park in an unauthorised place, you can expect a penalty of up to about 300 Dollars.
