A mere 316 square kilometres in size, there are no long distances to travel once you get here either. With an excellent road system and efficient transportation services reaching all parts of the island, bus journeys are rarely more than 30 minutes long. And should you wish to visit Gozo, a regularly scheduled ferry service will get you from Ċirkewwa in Malta to Mġarr in Gozo in roughly twenty minutes.
There are a number of ways of navigating the Maltese Islands. No matter where you wish to go, no distance is ever too far away. With a vast range of transport options available to suit all types of budgets, you’ll always be able to reach your destination quickly and efficiently, in a way that is suited to your needs.
Taxi service is available on 24/7 basis from both airports as well as in all hotels in Malta. A pre-booking of the service with pre-agreed prices is recommended. Many local companies have mobile applications for online bookings.
Malta’s buses are comfortable, affordable and reliable. They provide an excellent way of travelling around the Maltese islands. You can plan your journey effectively through the Tallinja smartphone app or by visiting Malta’s Public Transport website
With ferries running from Ċirkewwa in Malta to Mġarr in Gozo, passengers can either travel on foot or by car. Car passengers can leave their vehicles below deck (and above on some newer ferries), and make their way to the upper deck to enjoy the views. For those wishing to travel from Valletta, there is the Gozo Fast Ferry, taking passengers from the capital Valletta to Mġarr.
E-BIKES & SCOOTERS
If you prefer two wheels to four, there are many e-bikes and scooter stations where one can easily hop on a bike. There are also a number of bike rental companies in both Malta and Gozo. Motorbikes too are an option for those over 21 who are in possession of a driving licence.
Malta is ideal to travel around using a car. Whilst most choose to book online, there are car rental companies at the airport should you wish to hire upon arrival. Bear in mind, however, that driving in Malta is on the left, and one must be between 21 and 70 to rent a car. Make sure you compare prices, car models, and agency locations to get the best deal, and always use a reputable company.
