  • Car Hire Murcia - Where is Murcia Airport?
    Murcia San Javier Airport is located to the North West of La Manga approximately 20 minutes drive by hire car. To drive to Alicante from Murcia airport takes around 40 minutes.

    In the past few years there has been a vast increase in the volume of commuters using this airport; Murcia saw a 22 percent increase in the number of passengers passing through the airport between 2006 and 2007, these were primarily passengers from the UK. However the airport has taken all the necessary measures to accommodate this influx of travelers. Property owners and holiday makers alike are now enjoying the convenience that Murcia Airport offers.

    The Airport is located just outside of Murcia City, approximately a 10 minute drive, making any additions for on going expansion possible. In 2006 the recent temporary modernisations and expansions were finished adding over 1000 square meters to the arrivals area, the number of check-in desks was doubled, and two new baggage claim carousels were added as well as offices for four new car hire companies.

    After two million passengers traveled though Murcia San Javier airport last year a permanent expansion of the terminal was considered vital. In July of this year the work began. The EUR266 million Euro development is due to be completed in 2010 and will make Murcia airport the most suitable and convenient for anyone visiting La Manga.

Excellent transport links make hiring a car here a really sensible option. Leaving Murcia the A-30 is a quick and direct route on a good road that will take you to the La Manga resort.

    When it comes to urban sprawl and development the Costa Calida compared to the Costa Blanca or Costa Almeria is relatively untouched, but where building has taken place great consideration has gone into the planning ensuring the resorts have been constructed in harmony with the natural features of the area. The attractive woodlands, golden beaches and crystal blue green seas, have all been conserved to maintain the original alluring charm of the area.

    The Calblanque nation park remains one of the least disturbed areas of conservation land, and it will stay protected there for future generations to enjoy. Recently The World Health Organisation decreed the Murcia Province the cleanest in Spain.

    It is well worth considering this trip by hire car as you can take in the outstanding natural beauty of the Costa Calida at your own pace. Sample the scenic twisting coastal roads, and reach towns and villages of the region which might otherwise have been missed.

    A Car Hire Murcia is the perfect way to explore the region. With so many interesting places to discover a Car Hire Spain is the recommended and most cost effective transport option.

    • We booked a four day golfing trip with Liz from Platinum and it was nothing short of amazing! The courses that Liz selected for us were amongst the best we have ever played. When you get collected from your apartment and taken to the golf course then collected after your round, it's like having your own personal chauffeur during your stay. We are already starting to plan another trip with Liz - therefore, I would have no hesitation in Recommending Platinum Holiday Rentals to anyone who is looking to play hassle free golf, accommodation and travel.
