Emergency Telephone Numbers - Police/Ambulance/Health/Fire
Please find below a list of Emergency numbers that you can call in the unlikely event that you need them. It is advisable to take note of the following information or URL to this page (should you have a Smart/I-phone), prior to your holiday and bring them with you. At the very least, the main Emergency Number should be stored to your phone prior to your Holiday.
Please remember that Sol Rentals staff are available if you experience any kind of emergency. Should you need us, feel free to call us on our contact numbers on your booking forms. Please note though that we cannot guarantee to be available 24/7 - 365 days per year, so in the event you have an emergency during your stay you are responsible for dealing with it yourself.

in this area.

Taxi & Bus Services
Taxi's are available at the Malaga Airport Arrival Terminal freely (no need to book) and are the quickest option for travelling to and from your holiday home with us here at Sol Rentals. They are however a little pricey. Prices can vary dependant on season, but as a general rule we would advise clients to budget 40-50 Euros each way for their Taxi ride.
If you wish to call and order a Taxi for your return to the Airport, or to use at any time during your stay use the following contact for any pickup in the Fuengirola area:
Radio Taxi Fuengirola
Sol Rentals also have a more personal Airport Pick Up
service available at far lower rates than local taxis will provide.

served in the Peak Seasons.

Bus Services, though not quite up to the standard of Spains excellent rail networks, are cheap and allow you to travel between virtually any town or tity in Andalucia. For instance, if you wish to visit Marbella, the bus service will get you there for under 2euros per person.
Schedules change often and in the busy season are so popular they rarely run on time.
The local bus (single level, shorter bus either yellow or red) will get you between your apartment and Fuengirola centre. Simply ask the driver if he goes where you want (they are used to it!).
If you want to travel to Marbella, Benalmadena, Torremolinos or anywhere else further afield, you need to make your way on the local bus (they virtually ALL stop here at some point on their route) to the Bus Station in the centre of Fuengirola and purchase a ticket at the kiosk. Then, simply wait for the bus with your destination written on to come along! Queuing in Spain is generally regarded as optional, by the way.
