Murcia: (Covera) newly opened in January 2019 and replaces the original airport of San Javier. Approx 1hr 30mins drive, dual-carriageway direct from the airport leading to the motorways. Most Airlines and larger car-hire companies have now transferred to this new airport, further details to follow when available.
Further details can be provided as to airlines serving the above airports and help/advice freely given in making such bookings.
We would like to recommend that a car is hired for your stay. There is large choice of Rental Companies that serve the above airports. Savings can be made by making your booking on the Internet, and in most cases with no deposit and payment on arrival by credit card. A valid driving licence is obviously required.
Car-hire is also available locally, however prices seem higher than internet pre-booking for collection at the airports.
We have our regular rent-a-car companies that we use, and we would be happy to pass on details of these companies if required. In particular we would like to recommend Zest Car Rental (external link) who have proved to be competitive and efficient over the past years.
