Another boost for Murcia drivers

Renting a car in Murcia is one of the best ways to get the most out of a holiday in La Manga Club, expanding the range of options one has and freeing up one's itinerary.

Those who take advantage of car hire in Murcia - for example, by booking a vehicle in advance via the La Manga Club website - will soon be able to benefit from a better quality of road in the region.
