Malta International Airport Car Hire

The Maltese Islands of Malta, Gozo, and Comino are absolutely captivating gems of the Mediterranean. Beautiful beaches with crystal clear waters and warm golden sands make Malta a truly breath-taking holiday spot. Add in the historical, cultural, and natural wonders of the area, and you’ve got a destination sure to please even the pickiest traveller. 

The airport is situated just six miles to the southwest of Valetta, Malta’s capital - on the site of a former RAF base. The shops and restaurants cater to all tastes, and the Observation Deck which allows travellers to watch the planes coming and going, and the Amusement Room will keep you entertained while you wait for your flight.

How do I book Malta Car Hire?

It’s easy to get started searching for the best car hire options once you know your flight details into Malta.

Just click into the bar at the top of the page, input your travel dates and select ‘search’. hoppa will pull all the best results from our vast list of transport providers and return a selection of vehicle types for you to choose from.

It is recommended that you book your car hire online and in advance. While it is possible that you’ll be able to hire a car without pre-booking, your options will likely be limited and your rates will be much higher.

What things should I consider when selecting my Malta Car Hire?

There are a number of things to consider when choosing a rental vehicle. How many people are travelling with you? How much luggage will you be bringing? If you’re travelling alone and not bringing much baggage, you’ll need a smaller vehicle than if you’re travelling with your whole family and all of their things.

Another thing to consider is the fuel policy. The most common policy for car hire is ‘full to full’ - that means you receive the car with a full tank and are expected to return it with a full tank. 

Lastly, where do you want to collect and return your vehicle? Airport pickup and drop-off is very convenient but it isn’t cost-effective. You’ll have to decide whether the cash or the convenience takes top priority for you.
