Airline tickets to Malaga

We have another article that covers how to get the best airline tickets possible to Spain, and we thought we knew it all. Well, there looks like there is a way to get your tickets even cheaper, and at with a lot less work. Our favorite website to use is http://skyscanner.net. Once you are there select your airports and dates and hit search. skyscanner.net flexible search 1Right underneath the “Search” button you will shortly see “Flexible?” show up. Click it and look for “Change your dates?” on the left hand side of the screen. Click on “Whole Month”. Once you click it you get a calendar for the entire month you have picked to depart. For most major towns in Europe we found November 2013 prices from 25 pounds to 50 pounds, round trip!

Oslo – Malaga: 25 pounds

Car Rental Rates


car rental in malaga - spaniaguiden.noWe just received an email from SpaniaGuiden.no. They have a website for renting cars very cheaply. I was amazed to see that you could now rent a car in Malaga for 28 days for only 149 euro. How is that possible??? I have no idea, but this Winter Special is definitely worth checking out! I wouldn't wait long to jump on these prices.



The weather is ideal for exploring the many historical towns and cities the region has to offer. The high season can be a bit too hot for this. It is also a fantastic time for trying out some of the many golf courses here. Costa del Sol can offer 53 golf courses, with challenges for every level of expertise. So whether you are an history buff, love to golf, want to learn Spanish, or simply want to get away from the weather, Costa del Sol has what you are looking for, and we are looking for you.
