    Thanks for the update, very informative. We should now be in our very favourite hotel Molino del Santo with our children and grandchildren but it was not to be. As soon as we are able we will be back to Costa del Sol and will hire a car from the best car hire company we have ever dealt with in all the holiday places we have been. Thank you so much for being such a customer friendly company.
    Stay safe

    It’s great to hear from you and we really admire the new measures you are taking to ensure customer safety and security during these critical times. We should have been with you this month and again in June and will really miss spending time in beautiful Nerja. We are really looking forward to the day we can come back and see you all again but till then take care of each other and stay safe.

  10. Benoy danny says:

    Hope you are all ok!!
    We had a booking from 2nd of June until 29th June 2020, but our Tui flight has been cancelled, and as the situation is very unsure for the moment, we have to cancel our booking for the car.
    As soon as we have the possibility to travel to Malaga again we will contact you for a new booking!

    Stay safe, and hope to see you all again very soon.

    Kind regards,

    Danny & Ann Benoy
