You should post this question in the spanish foruns, in Portugal you're only visiting Lisboa so it's simple.

Renting a vehicle in Seville, then drop the vehicle off at Granada, and fly Granada to Barcelona.

For your Lisbon visit you may enjoy the following websites:

visitportugal.com/Cultures/en-US/default.html

http://www.visitlisboa.com/Lisbon.aspx

and, as said above, Sintra is very much worth visiting, it's 1/2 hour from Lisbon:

Absolutely, too much driving and no time for seeing the cities. Kids will get frustrated and bored and it will be very very hot especially in Seville and Madrid and practically everywhere on your route. Check the price of flying, it could be much cheaper and much nicer. Cut your itinerary down to 3 or 4 places and stay in Torremolinos or Benalmadena for 3 days instead of Malaga. You can then do short trips into Malaga by the local train and chill out on the beach or by the hotel pool. I would advise: Lisbon, Torremolinos/Benalmadena (for Malaga and a day trip to Granada by bus. ) Then fly to Madrid from Malaga airport. Your suggested itinerary will end in divorce!

PS The earlier you book flights the cheaper it will be. Check out Easyjet and Ryanair - but you MUST read the small print with Ryanair. Easyjet is WYSIWYG.

As far as Portugal is concerned, you can check out this web site where you may find lots of places to visit and the gps coordinates to find them. You can search by different categories. It is at www.coordenadasgps.pt

Have a nice trip

This morning I picked up a folder about: www.kidzania.pt/homepage.aspx…

It looks like great fun for kids. If you have time when in Lisbon, you may want to visit?
