Getting from Malaga airport to Sevilla - by train?

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone,
We're leaving next Monday (myself, husband and daughter) for Andalucia for two weeks. So I'll probably be asking a lot of questions here at the last minute, :)..

We are flying into Malaga at 11:50 am (if the plane's on time) and we need to be in Sevilla that same day, where we've rented an apartment for the week. (We rented the apartment when I thought we'd fly into Seville - turned out to be a lot cheaper to fly r/t to Malaga..)

We plan to take the train from Malaga to Sevilla.
There is a 2 pm train and a 4 pm train.

I'd like to take the 2 pm but that seems to be cutting it close.
Should we take the 4 pm?
Is there a place in the Malaga train station, or nearby, where we can get lunch? (I'm also vegan which complicates things - although my ethics get more relaxed as my hunger pangs grow...:). But I won't eat meat so the food needs to at least be vegetarian..)

Or should I book the 2 pm train? What happens if we miss the train?

Is the train at least comfortable and restful? I know we're going to be exhausted after flying all night, etc.

Re; booking - I wanted to do that in advance. Or should I just wait until we get there, in case we can get on the 2 pm? It's a Monday, in case that's significant.

I've read about all of the issues with booking with Renfe and know to use petrabax if REnfe doesn't work (?)

Finally - we want to rent a car the 2nd week when we leave Seville, to drive to Ronda and Granada, then Nerja, then back to Malaga.
Car rental recommemndations? (The folks at SlowTravel say AutoEurope. Sevilla% recommends carjet. We have a AAA card and get a discount on hertz rentals. )
What do we need to know about insurance on the car?

Thank you so much for your help!!
