Apologies if this has been done before, but I'm finding the pricing for car hire from Malaga in mid-Feb 2013 very confusing. The main thing is that the broker type sites produce very low prices (e.g. £30-£40 for 8 days all in for a smallish car), but more direct sites spit out a price which is much higher, and to be honest, more like what I expected to pay (e.g., £100/week). It's been a few years since we hired a car from Malaga, and while the low headline prices are gratifying, i am very suspicious that we are going to be hit with numerous surcharges and extras which may mean the higher headline priced deals might be more suitable.
I tried Malagacar.com which has been well reviewed and offered a middling price of 55 euros, only to discover when the voucher arrived that all the extras basically doubled the price. Meanwhile Helle Hollis (again well reviewed) was closer to £150 on the quote.
Any suggestions about which of the companies can be trusted and is reliable, even if not the cheapest, will be gratefully received.
