Have you remembered these 3 steps during preparations for your Costa del Sol trip?

The fact that the Costa del Sol is such a well-known hotspot for tourists, should not fool you into thinking you will barely need to do any preparation for your own next holiday there. 

We certainly know this ourselves here at Simply Shuttles. By booking one of our Málaga Airport transfers to Marbella, Estepona, Fuengirola, or all manner of other locations along the Costa del Sol, travellers can ensure they get even more out of the time they spend here. 

And when you do prepare well for your Costa del Sol trip, you can be sure of those sandy beaches, blue skies, and plentiful sunshine being even more enjoyable for you. 

So, whether you are planning to head away for some autumn or winter sun, or looking to get ahead for next summer, you might well be highly appreciative of our below “top tips” for holiday preparation. 

  • Book your trip early

One of the best ways to make sure your holiday starts off on the right foot is to save your hard-earned cash – and this can be achieved by getting ahead of the game and booking early. 

Shop around on travel sites and with various providers to see who can offer the best value for money. Once you have, you will be able to jet off in the knowledge that you have probably saved money, compared to the person who simply books with whatever providers they are already familiar with. 

It is also a good idea to take a look at extra elements such as your transport arrangements within the Costa del Sol region itself, and to get these booked at the same time if you can.

  • Have an itinerary

While holidays are a great time to be spontaneous, having a loose itinerary can help reduce stress, and make sure you get to see specific attractions and trips. 

Whether you want to enjoy some history in Gibraltar, get back to nature at the Nerja Caves, or shop until you drop in Marbella, having a basic plan will let you tick everything off your list.

  • Learn the lingo!

While you don’t have to be fluent in Spanish in order to enjoy a Spanish holiday, having a few basic phrases under your belt can be an excellent way to help enhance your trip, and will show the locals that you are making an effort. It can also be a lot of fun to test out your skills when you arrive!

Indeed, we have written previously here at Simply Shuttles about how you really can speak Spanish as if you were a native during your time on the Costa del Sol. 

By making the right preparations, you can help ensure the perfect Costa del Sol break 

So, there you have it – three things that will greatly help you to plan and enjoy your next holiday in this part of southern Spain. 

And of course, don’t forget to pack the sunscreen too, alongside the booking of any required Málaga Airport transfers to Marbella, Puerto Banús, San Pedro, or other key destinations around Andalucia.
