Is it best to buy bus tickets from Malaga to Granada in advance?


I am coming into Malaga airport at around 3pm on an Easyjet flight.
I have been told that the best way to get to Granada is by bus.

Is it possible to get a bus from the airport to Granada or do I have to go to Malaga bus station.

Is it best to book in advance or to buy the ticket when I arrive.

This is a very common question.

In my opinion it is best to buy a ticket to Granada from Malaga in advance.
It makes things easier if you aready have the ticket and it is one less thing to worry about on arrival.

If you miss a bus they normally let you onto the next bus without paying again as long as you have a ticket.
