Location information for Malta

Malta is situated in the Mediterranean Sea near Sicily. The country has a rich history and you can reach a range of sites if you are using car hire in Malta. During the hot summer months travel in comfort with your air conditioned vehicle to explore ancient ruins, undeveloped beaches and quaint seaside towns.

Transport

[transport]

Public transport is available on Malta but catching buses can be unpleasant during summer. Car rental in Malta is a more comfortable option, and with your own vehicle you can explore sites such as Hagar Qim and the famous Golden Bay beaches. Malta Airlines offers transportation to the island via its international airport situated in Gudja.

Car Hire Malta

It is easy to arrange your own vehicle in Malta as there are many companies available including Autoway, Drifter and Budget. Prices are reasonable and if you pre-book your vehicle online you can usually get a good deal. With a range of vehicles to choose from at all of the firms, there is a car to suit everyone.

Driving

The road network in Malta has been improved in recent years and GPS coverage can help you find your destination. Traffic travels on the left side of the road and overtakes on the right. The use of a horn is prohibited in residential areas during certain times and drivers are not permitted to use mobile phones.

Things To See and Do

Madina, otherwise known as the Silent City, is worth a visit for its interesting fortress. Tourists can go shopping in Valletta, the capital, or visit some of the city's museums. Don't miss St John's cathedral, which includes rare paintings and relics. If you want to escape the crowded beaches during high season, take a drive to Ghajn Tuffieha. The Blue Grotto's sea caves and rock formations are also well worth a daytrip.

Best Time To Visit

Malta has a Mediterranean climate with hot summers and cool winters. Rainfall occurs during winter and the summer months are reliably dry. Peak tourist season runs from July to September and offers the best time to visit if you are looking for a fun beach holiday and temperatures of up to 30°C. If your priority is sightseeing, it is better to travel outside of the high season as the weather is cooler (10 to 15°C) and there are fewer crowds.

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 121CarHire.com 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?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
