The main car hire pick up point is Malta Airport although vehicles can be rented across the island at St Julian’s , Sliema, Mellieha, Qawra, St Paul’s Bay, Bugibba and the capital, Valetta. Renting Malta Airport Car Hire is a very simple process with all car rental desks situated to the left in the arrivals hall after collecting your baggage. All major car rental companies are represented at Malta International Airport – Hertz, Sixt, Avis, Dollar/Thrifty, Budget, Europcar and First Car Rental.
Once you have picked up your documents from the car rental desk, the car rental representative will give direction to where the rental car is parked. There is a general parking area for all rental cars – a map of which is here.
Driving is on the left in Malta as it is in the UK with speed limits restricted to 50Km/h in towns and 80km/h on stretches of open road. Minimum age for car hire in Malta is 21 although a supplement will apply unless you are 25 or over. Please be aware that seat belts are compulsory.
