Renting a car at Malaga Airport without excess is the best option to avoid additional or unnecessary costs, as the insurance covers most of the damages that may be caused to the vehicle, but it is not exempt from a deposit to cover some negligence on the part of the client.
As can be seen below, the excess entails an economic retention of a variable amount, for which CarGest has the Premium rate. The following table shows the advantages of renting a car at Malaga airport according to our different rates.

At CarGest we request a deposit for any type of vehicle and rate. In this way we ensure that we can cover negligence caused to vehicles by clients, such as the loss of car keys, filling the petrol tank of a diesel vehicle or vice versa and other similar circumstances such as racing cars and returning the vehicle in a deplorable state. The following table shows the amount of deposit to be paid for each group of vehicles.
|Group A-D||€ 300|
|Group E-F1||€ 450|
|Group F2-GA||€ 600|
|Group H-JA||€ 800|
|Group L – L2||€ 1.500|
|Group L3 – L4||€ 2.000|
This deposit amount is a bank pre-authorisation, i.e. a “charge pending confirmation” that is made on the customer’s card to ensure that the card is valid and has a sufficient balance. The bank is responsible for unblocking the deposit back into your account, which can take up to 30 days.
If the Premium rate is contracted, the pre-authorisation of the deposit is made only once, regardless of the number of days the vehicle is rented, whereas if the Basic rate is contracted, the pre-authorisation of the deposit must be renewed every 30 days if the vehicle is rented for more than one month.
Below is a table showing the costs (including VAT) associated with repairs for the Basic tariff, as these costs are exempt in the Premium tariff, except for negligence on the part of the customer.
