A number of budget airlines fly to Malaga airport, including easyJet, which is about 2 hours drive from Orgiva. Ryanair have recently started offering cheap flights to Granada, which is even closer from London Stanstead and Luton.
We can arrange to meet you at either airport with transport suitable for carrying bikes. Alternatively, there are numerous car hire companies operating at the airport, who normally will supply a free roof rack if requested when making your booking.
We are happy to offer advice about getting the best value flights.

Most riders prefer to bring their own bike, which is quite easy to do. Use a bike bag or obtain a cardboard box (free) from your local bike dealer. To pack, simply lower the saddle and turn the handle bars sideways. We also suggest removing pedals and detaching the rear mech, and using extra cardboard, bubble wrap and pipe insulation as extra protection. To be on the safe side, you might also want to bring a spare mech hanger out with you. Please also bring 3 spare inner tubes and spare brake pads.
It is advisable to check with your airline or travel agent, as carriers have diferent rules about transporting boxed bikes. Some allow you to book your bike on in advance, normally for a fee, others carry bikes for free, but may not have space on the day.
