Rip Off Airport Taxis

Just returned from Malaga where I paid E40 for a taxi from the Airport to Benalmadena.

When I protested to the driver he pretended that he didn't understand English

Would advise anyone travelling to agree the fare before hiring a taxi at this rip off joint.

Can anyone advise if there is a cheap way of travelling from Malaga Airport to Marbella. Thanks

Hi Amber

Was going to Santa Ana so not a long journey. I know I should have asked the fare beforehand but it was raining heavily at the time and I forgot so just wanted to make others aware.

Are you able to suggest a cheap way of getting to Marbella?

Cheers

Official fares are posted at the airport on a large sign by the door.

If you get an official taxi there is never a problem in my experience. If you have a problem, take his number and report him. All official taxis though that I have taken have had a pay meter.
