Why It's a Deal A recent Kayak search shows the lowest round-trip airfare between New York City and Málaga starts from $787 in early May (Turkish Air). Add to that $260 per person including taxes for six nights at Hotel Las Piramides, and you're already spending $1,047 on airfare and accommodation alone. Even if you add in the $51 per vehicle rental car charge and $20 per day for indoor parking at the hotel, you still end up saving $29 with this travel package that gives you air and six nights in Southern Spain, plus a seven-day car rental, daily breakfast, and all hotel and air taxes and fees.
