Location information for Malta

Car hire in Malta

Most visitors prefer to use car rental in Malta when touring the tiny country. The capital alone is so compact and dense, packed full with a variety of edifices and historical landmarks. Tourists can also plan a leisurely trip through the country's low hills, beautiful bays, hidden coves, medieval ruins and imposing citadels.

Major airports and ports

Malta (Valletta) International Airport is the sole air hub for visitors coming to the island. From this former RAF station, the capital of Valletta is easily accessible with car hire in Malta. The capital also accommodates a large ferry port, the Valletta Waterfront Pier, where travellers can visit Catania and Palermo in Sicily and Civitavecchia, Livorno and Genoa in Italy, as well as any of Malta's three islands.


The country's peculiar bus system uses 1950s-era vehicles painted white and yellow and decked out with religious decor. Two types of taxi services are available. White taxis can be found everywhere, but tourists often have to remind drivers to use their meters, while black taxis are privately owned, have fixed rates and distances and require a phone call for pick up. By far the easiest way to get around is a hire car, so holidaymakers should compare cheap car hire in Malta with before travelling.

Driving tips

As a former British stronghold, Malta accepts UK driving licences and motorists drive on the left-hand side of the road, but only people 18 years old and above are allowed to operate vehicles. Don't sound car horns in city centres between 22:00 and 06:00 or use mobile phones when driving. Beware radar traps and follow speed limits. Car hire in this country usually comes with third party liability insurance.

Places to visit

Locals will point tourists in the direction of the legendary and historic Grand Master's Palace in the capital as a starting point of any journey. Malta is a melting pot of European, Arab and African influences, and this is clearly evident in the local cuisine. Motor over to The Avenue in Paceville for a taste of the country's culinary history.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation.
