There are many things about transportation in Malta that you should know as a tourist. You should be familiar with the different means of transport you can use from the airport to your favorite hotels in Malta and to the different destination points on your Malta holiday. It is worth remembering the following transport information:

Airport – Malta International Airport is located 10 km from Valletta, between the towns of Luqa and Gudja. Air Malta is the national airline of Malta. You can check the departure and arrival times from your hotel room in Malta by calling (+356)21229990 or (+356)21690890.

Car rental – There are coaches, minivans and chauffeured cars that can pick you up from any hotel in Malta. William’s Garage is located at Triq il-Port Ruman Qawra, and Zarb Coaches at Zarb Garage Gharghur Road, Malta. These two companies will provide your ground transportation needs the moment you leave that room in your Malta hotel.

Public transport – the best way to get around in Malta is through public transport, which is a bus. Malta’s main bus terminal is located in Valletta, just outside City Gate. An express bus service links the main tourist centers with Sliema, Marsaxlokk and Mdina, the three cities with perfect sandy beaches for your Malta holidays. In towns and villages, the bus terminal is usually located in or near the square. You can go anywhere on the island as the buses pass through it and they will return you to your accommodation in Malta.

ferry service – Cars and passengers take the ferry service to go from Malta to Gozo or vice versa. This roll-on roll-off ferry has regular trips and schedules and is operated by the Gozo Channel Company. The ferry ride from one island to another is about 30 minutes. To go to Canimo, the smallest of the three main islands, you can take ferries from Cirkewwa.

Taxi – In Malta, the white taxi service has the privilege of picking up passengers anywhere except bus stops. Taxi services from Malta International Airport to all locations in Malta, including Malta hotels, are based on a fixed rate. There is no meter in Malta, so it is recommended that you ask and agree to the fare before boarding a taxi.

Malta is a relatively small place and you may want to try renting a car or bike to go to tourist destinations near your Malta hotel. However, when driving, you should keep in mind that you should drive on the left side of the road, in order to avoid accidents, it is better to go on foot.
