Anyone know the fastest way (bus,train,rental car) to get from Salamanca to either Malaga or Granada?? I'm having a tough time searching for this information online.

Quickest way would probably be to take a train to Madrid and fly to Granada from there. Though if you only want to go overland then check out the Renfe (train) and the Alsa (bus) websites to see which would be quickest.

I'm not sure how long it would take to drive.

Malaga is much easier to get than Granada (without flying) as there are both more trains and Malaga is on the fast AVE line.

You can do Salamanca to malaga in 6hrs 30, with a change in Madrid (note that you almost always have to make you own way between Charmartin and Atocha stations, though this is easy). Be aware that timeings vary through the day, and some take a chunk longer. Also, some connections involve an extra change south of Salamanca (in Valladolid, Medina or Avila), and that all long distance Spanish trains require compulsary reservation.

If you include flights, it is much simpler. fly direct from Salamanca to Malaga, taking just over an hour, and both airports are reasonably accessible. I just slapped in a date at random and it gave me a price of 120euros, though no idea how typical or otherwise that is.
