This new group is FVAR. The new automatic Espace 7 seater has less luggage capacity then the previous model and when using the 7 seats there is very little space for luggage. You have 5 normal seats and 2 smaller folding seats in the back, perfect for families with children and 6 persons seated with some space for luggage. Bookings now taken for Malaga and Gibraltar.

Look out for the radars when driving on the Costa del Sol

09 May 2015 12:15

We and other hire car companies on the Costa del Sol are experiencing a high amount of traffic fines being drawn up against our rented cars. This is much due to the lowered limits that applies to the radars and above all for us hire cars companies with much traffic to and from Malaga airport as all cars driving the Coast road A7 (old N340) are passing the zone radar in the Faro/Mijas stretch. This radar measures the average speed for aprox 5km between aprox km 200.4 y 204.8. Even being a double lane road looking like a perfect motorway the speed limit is only 80kph and the radar will jump at 88kph.

The person hiring the car is responsible for the fines. If it comes from a radar it will be sent to us, we will identify the driver and the fine will be sent to the clients home address. If no possibility to identify the driver it will be charged to the credit card used for the contract.

If pulled by the Traffic police you can pay the fine on the spot with card or cash and get a 50% reduction.

The table below shows on the left the speed limit and on the dark grey area when the radars will jump and after the amounts applied at different speeds
