Car hire in Malta
Hiring a car in Malta
Malta may be a small island, but it certainly packs a punch when it comes to providing all your holiday requirements. There is masses of history, culture and beautiful scenery, all wrapped up in an easily navigable parcel that is perfect for hiring a car and driving around. With an area of just 316 km², you’ll be at your destination in no time.
Having been ruled by the Romans, Moors, Knights of St John, French and British at one time or another, it’s not surprising that Malta has influences from all of these cultures. Explore the capital city, Valletta, which was established by the Knights of St John in the 1500s, and Mdina, which served as the capital from antiquity right through to the medieval period.
What you need to know
Booking a hire car for your holiday couldn’t be simpler, with many of the big names offering services on the island. You can choose from around five companies that provide cars in central locations, but for many people, it is much easier to collect your car at the airport, avoiding the need for a transfer to your hotel.
There are ten hire car companies to choose from at Malta International Airport (MLA), with the majority of them rated 'good' by our customers. By using our booking tool you’ll be able to find the right vehicle for your needs at the best price before you travel.
Where to pick up your car
If you have chosen a car hire company that can provide you with a vehicle in a city centre location, then be sure to check the details of it before setting off. Once you arrive at the firm’s office, staff will be able to help direct you to your hire car.
Picking up your hire car at the airport couldn’t be easier, as all of the desks are located within the terminal building. Simply look for the name of the car hire company you booked with and before you know it, you’ll be driving away to start your holiday.
