Hi Bluerose

You can get an Antigen test, at Malaga Airport, currently this costs Euro 24.45.

You are strongly advised to book an appointment so that you do not have to queue or find that they are too busy to test you before your flight:

https://travelcovidtestcenter.com/aeropuerto-de-malaga

I would pay the additional Euro 6, and get the test where you are staying, up to 72 hours prior to departure so that, if you test positive, and cannot fly, you have a day or three to make alternative arrangements.

You should also check that your intended travel insurance will pay out for the additional expenses of staying in Spain another 10 days to quarantine and the additional cost of the return commercial flight and/or a private jet to get you back immediately.

Best regards

Philip

Hi.   You can book a test at Malaga airport before your flight - results in 5-20 mins (we got ours in 10) and it costs 24€.

You need to test within 72 hours before return flight, so could be at airport, prior to flight

In fact, the UK government rules allow you to take the test at any time 3 days before departure, which is a bit longer than 72 hours, especially if your flight is in the evening:
