KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Valletta

  • Choosing car hire in Valletta gives you the ultimate freedom to explore Valletta city and the beautiful island of Malta on your own schedule. Driving between attractions, like the Vendome Bastion or the historic Valletta city gate, is a great way to avoid walking in the heat or travelling on crowded public transport in summer. With Valletta car hire, you can also reach out-of-the-way attractions in a shorter space of time. For instance, driving to the famous Verdala Palace takes around 25min, compared with over 1 hour on public transport.
  • Valletta is located around a 15min drive from Malta International Airport (MLA), making it convenient to hire a car straight from the terminal. To collect a pre-booked Valletta hire car or find out about hiring a vehicle when you land, you should leave the terminals and make your way to the Park East building, which is a short walk away. The car hire branches are located inside Park East on Level -1.
  • Using car hire in Valletta, you will find that the streets in older parts of the city are quite narrow and that visibility at corners is sometimes poor. This means that drivers should take care when turning or pulling out at junctions, to give other drivers plenty of space. Visitors should also be aware that many Malta fuel stations do not accept card payments, so keep some cash on you when you’re driving around, especially in more rural areas.
  • During the high tourist season, from June to August, you may encounter heavy traffic congestion in Valletta city centre, especially around the popular tourist spots. If you’re visiting during a busy time, it is a good idea to explore older parts of the city on foot and use your Valletta car hire for excursions outside the city instead. The summer heat in Valletta and the high volume of city traffic can also cause structural damage to the roads, so be wary of cracks or potholes that may appear towards the end of the tourist season.
  • Book your car hire in Valletta at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini car hire in Valletta are around 66% cheaper than other car types, on average

However, if you plan to mainly drive outside the city, a sporty coupe is also an excellent choice for speed and handling on quieter roads.
