Having a rental car parked for three nights in Granada..

Jump to last reply

We plan to rent a car in June, to drive from Sevilla to Ronda (2 nights lodging), then Ronda to Granada (3 nights lodging), then Nerja (2 nights lodging.)
Originally, I planned the trip thinking we;'d travel by bus and train everywhere, so booked lodging accordingly in the center of these towns. However, I prefer to be in town even if we have a car, so we don't have to drive in every day...
However, that means we pay for parking lots/garages.

My main concern is Granada, where we'll be for three nights. We're staying in an apartment in the Albaicin. I understand there's a parking garage nearby.. My concern is the cost,of parking the car, however when we won't even be using it those 2 days in Granada.

Should we keep the car parked for three nights, or should we consider dropping the car off in Granada and renting again when we leave for Nerja? Which would be more cost-effective?

Also- we are staying in Sevilla for one week before, with no car. On our last day there, however, we'd like to rent the car and drive to Cordoba for the day, then drive back to Sevilla and park at the parking lot near the Maria Luisa park (it's the closest one to our rental apt.) We'd park it for one night, then the next morning, we leave for Ronda.
Is that a good idea? We thought it would be cheaper than the train for all three of us, and give us the freedom to explore around Cordoba more, and on the way back...

I'm also curious about the area around the Maria Luisa park -is that a safe lot? Are the public lots, in general, manned or monitored, and are they relatively safe? (In terms of theft and petty crime..) We will have our luggage with us and not in the car, except when we're traveling from town to town...

Thank you for your advice! I hope this is not too long-winded or confusing!
