Top tips for hiring a car in Malta

Bear in mind that Malta has a large number of cars for a small country, so traffic congestion is high and inevitable during rush hour, especially in Valletta, the capital. All public transportation vehicles, especially school buses, have the right of way, and roundabouts are in place at various points around the island. Please use prudence when you approach them.
Parking a rental car can be a tricky proposition in Malta, due to the high volume of cars and the limited spaces in which to park them. Regulations are strictly enforced when it comes to illegal parking, and cars are clamped or towed for serious infractions. To avoid Time Parking Zones, you can use one of the public car parks, which are attended and free of charge.
Take a day and explore the island of Gozo off the northern coast of mainland Malta. Ferries are available to transport your vehicle, and since the island is small, you won’t need more than a couple of hours, unless you plan an extended visit. A plethora of activities abound, so you’ll have plenty to keep you occupied if you need to take a break from the road.
A drive along Route 1 travels from Birzebbuga near the Malta Seaport in the south and winds northward past Malta International Airport, through the University of Malta in the east, and skirts the eastern coast up through Bugibba and Mellieha, where it culminates at Cirkewwa in the north. The trip takes about an hour each way, traffic permitting, and should get you back well before dinner.

What is driving like in Malta?

The driving norm in Malta is to drive on the left side of the road. Both front and rear seatbelts must be used by all passengers whenever the vehicle is in motion. Be advised that there are rigorous drunk driving laws in place that could land you imprisonment if you’re convicted. It is not recommended that anyone drive who has consumed any alcohol.

How old do you have to be to hire a car in Malta?

Maltese law requires anyone intending to rent a car in the country to be at least 21 years of age but no older than 70. Also, you must have been legally driving for at least one year (three years if using Sixt). Drivers under 24 will be charged a fee of about 15 € ($17) per day. One good thing is that no International Driver’s Permit is necessary if you have a valid US driver’s license.

How much does petrol cost in Malta?

Prices for petrol and diesel are very expensive compared to prices in the United States. A liter of petrol sells for about 1.36 € ($1.54) and about $5.84 per gallon in the US. Diesel fuel prices are 1.23 € ($1.39) per liter and $5.28 per gallon. Thankfully, it’s not a very big island, so you should get excellent mileage from a full tank, if you rent a car in Malta.

What are the speed limits in Malta?

Should you decide to rent a car in Malta, be advised that there is no official limit for speeding on the highways/motorways, so exercise good judgement and vigilance if you use them. When you are driving along rural roads, you should observe a speed limit of about 70 km/h (43 mph), and if you are exploring the city limits, you should keep to a maximum speed of 50 km/h (31 mph) in order to avoid fines.
