Why rent a car in Malta?

Malta is a great place for renting a car. The distances are small, but each city has its unique character and atmosphere. Having your own ride gives you the opportunity to also visit smaller villages and more private beaches all around the island. It’s also possible to take your rental car on a ferry from the main island of Malta to the smaller Gozo and Comino islands. 

Malta Car Rental

Top ways to enter Malta

  • Malta Airport: Malta Luqa Airport is served by many airlines, including a number of low-cost carriers, that connect it to mainland Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East.
  • By sea: If your car provider permits it, you can take your rental on a ferry. It only takes about 90 minutes to reach Malta from Sicily by boat. You can also conveniently pick up your rental car after you’ve already arrived in Malta.

Top cities and places to visit

  • Valletta: Malta’s capital might not have a lot of people living in it, but next to its cozy atmosphere it is also famous for stunning history, architecture, and many religious buildings.
  • Gozo Island: The smallest of the two islands making up Malta, Gozo also mixes wonderful sea coast with interesting history. One can find unique natural fetures, such as the Blue Hole and Inland Sea located in San Lawrenz. Unfortunately, the Azure Window collapsed a few years ago in bad weather. 
  • Cottonera: Made up of three different historic towns, Cottonera is known for its fort, churches, and Maritime Museum.
  • Marsaxlokk: The main attraction of this cozy village is the weekly fish market that is still in place every Sunday.
  • Rabat: Home to St. Paul’s catacombs and other historic landmarks, Rabat has a timeless feel.
  • St. Julians: North of Valletta, St. Julians is packed with hotels, resturants, bars, and clubs. It is also a good place to find boat tours around the islands.

Need a car to explore. Be very aware that the Malties are very bad drivers
