Top tips for hiring a car in Gozo Island

  • Traveling within Gozo and the surrounding islands will require your rental car to have a full tank, as the islands have few service stations. It's advisable to refill your rental car at the airport or close to your pick-up point to avoid frustrations from some gas stations you might find on the way. You can also ask about the best place to refuel when receiving your car.
  •  Booking Gozo Island car rentals in advance allows you to point out all the specifications you need for your vehicle. For instance, if traveling with minors under 12, you can request a car equipped with child safety chairs or strappings upfront. Other specifications you can point out are the number of travelers renting the vehicle, the type of car you are comfortable driving, and the number of days you will rent the vehicle.
  •  Car rentals in Gozo Island allow travelers to cross the islands without restrictions. It's also advisable to read the terms and conditions about traveling to specific places on the island. Some companies allow their cars to travel beyond Malta island, and others don't. It's therefore advisable to make such inquiries when booking.

If you are passing by Gozo as you tour the rest of Malta Island, you can park your car behind the bus station in Gozo.

Although the parking spaces have security and are safe, it's advisable always to lock the door and windows to secure your valuables and avoid theft or vandalism of the rental car due to negligence.

Gozo is a small town, and bus and train connections may prove problematic. The terrain may also limit public transport accessibility to some remote places. The rental companies in Gozo also allow you to choose a convenient pick-up and drop-off location for your car, making it cheaper than a one-way rental car.

  •  What is driving like in Gozo?

     Driving in Gozo is good in general as all roads are paved. However, it would be best if you noted that it could be difficult depending on the time of the day you are going. During morning hours or evening hours, the traffic is overwhelming. Also, you must put your careful driving gear on as the roads are narrow and curvy. There are no multiple highways, so getting lost as you navigate through is impossible. The driving speed limit is 80 km/h (50 mph) in freeways and 50 km/h (30 mph) in residential areas. Also, read the speed road signs as you drive to avoid getting a ticket.

  •  How old do I have to be to rent a car in Gozo?

     You can rent a car as long as you are at least 21 years old and less than 75 years of age. Drivers between 21 and 24 years old have to pay a young driver's charge as a way for rental companies to insure themselves. Older drivers between 70 and 75 must also provide a medical permit indicating they can drive without supervision. If traveling as a family or a group, you can let someone over 25 years drive you around to avoid extra charges. You must also have driving experience of at least 12 months and a valid driving license from your home country or an international driving license.
