A Travel can Car Hire Guide to Malta

If you are looking for a good way to get around Malta then hiring a car is probably your best option. There are several reasons that back this fact up, but the two main ones are; it is economic and that it is the best way to check out all the best attractions. The attractions scattered all over this island have made it comparable to an open air museum. You might be thinking that public transportation would be more economic than hiring a car; however, it should be noted that public transport is not that efficient. You will be able to move more freely and thus visit more sites if you hire your own car.

As mentioned above, there are several things and places to visit in Malta so you will find yourself driving extremely short distances. The best way to ensure that you don’t waste a lot of time in between attractions trying to find the right route then the right move would be to plan the route before leaving the hotel.

Touring by Rental Car Malta

If you hire a car then these are the places should make sure to visit when in Malta;

  1. Valletta:  This also happens to be Malta’s’ capital city; the city itself is mostly pedestrian so the closest you can come to it with a car is the outskirts of the city. You will enjoy the attractions more while on foot because there will be probably be an attraction at every turn. The city has a rich history. Valletta is also a UNESCO heritage centre; it’s hard not to visit this city if you are in the country. The city is also home to the one of a kind St. John Cathedral which was built in 1573 by GirolamoCassar.
  2. Mdina: also known as the silent city, its name was derived from the Arabic word ‘medina’ which translates to city. It was built by the Romans and used to be Malta’s capital city before St. Johns Knights arrived in the mid-1500s. Mdina is also a UNESCO heritage site and is also one of Malta’s most popular sites.
  3. Rabat: is home to St. Paul’s Catacombs; these catacombs were the earliest archaeological evidence of Christianity in this region. It used to be part of Mdina before it was split. Rabat also translates to ‘suburb’.
  4. Hal Tarxien: is a subterranean structure that was excavated in 3600 B.C. It consists of chambers, halls and passages that were curved out of living rock and cover an approximate five thousand square meters. The Hypogeum is the world’s only prehistoric underground temple and is thus a UNESCO heritage. The site is, however, under very strict conservation rules; in that it only allows a maximum of eight visitors each day. This means that you will be required to make a booking in advance.
  5. Qrendi:  is home to Hagar Qim temples which are on a hilltop that overlooks the little island of Fifla and the sea. The temple was excavated in 1839.

Quick And Easy

Very easy and painless booking process. car was close to what i booked. i would recommend clarifying 100% what the security deposit will be as the site mentioned 200euro and the local company charged me 1500euro. i know you get this back but its a large amount to block and the last thing you want to deal with after a long flight!
