Uber is now available on the Costa del Sol which means you can now arrange to be collected through your location via the app, without the struggle of explaining in Spanish where exactly you are. Uber isn't necesseraly cheaper than calling for a taxi but it does have some perks depending on your needs. Before making the final steps to book your Uber, you will be able to check roughly the price of your journey.
Uber drivers in Spain aren't like the ones in the UK, they have to have an SP License.
Its always good to have a backup!
