If you’re going on a summer holiday, on your own or with your best friend, or you are just looking for a short-term rental car to stay local then a small car like a Mini would be ideal - easy to park and cheap to run.
If you have a small family then a saloon car, a hatchback or an estate would work – plenty of space in the back to store all the luggage and enough power to plan a longer journey.
If your journey involves more passengers, requires a bit more comfort and more engine power then an SUV, MPV or people carrier would be your best choice.

Electric Vehicle Rental Malta Airport
The electric car rental business is currently in its infancy due to the ongoing push by the motoring industry to improve the car battery technology to guarantee longer life and allow the electric car to travel a longer distance. Additionally, more and more cities and towns are pushing ahead making electric points and charging stations available for electric vehicles (EV's). Some car rental companies are providing electric cars to rent, but currently these are few and far between.
Where is Malta ?
It is the largest of 3 islands, the others being Gozo and Kemmuna.
Malta is a fascinating place to visit, with a mixture of holiday resorts to enjoy the best relaxing break with your family, harbours loaded with luxury yachts or to visit the historic sites spread around the island.
Malta is steeped in history, and has changed hands over the centuries including the Romans, Greeks, Phoenicians, Arabs, Normans, Crusaders, the French and the British.
All have left their mark on the island, and all attracted by its strategic location and good sheltered harbours.
The capital Valletta is a UNESCO World Heritage site mainly because of the great number of historical buildings found in a tiny space.
Things to do in Malta
Mdina is a journey of about 30 minutes car drive from Valetta. It is very quaint. It was first created by the Romans, and was initially the capital of Malta until the Knights of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem took over.
Valletta is the capital and has many interesting historical sites as well as the large naval presence in the deep harbours. Take a trip around the harbour and see all the large cruise liners berthed here.
The North of Malta has the most rugged of all Malta's regions, offering spectacular views across to the islands of Comino and Gozo. Here you will find most of the established holiday and beach resorts, namely Qawra, Buġibba,St. Paul's Bay, and Mellieħa. Further northwards you also have Golden Bay, Paradise Bay and Għajn Tuffieħa. St. Julian's and Sliema are the main coastal resort towns in Malta and this is where you will find good shopping, entertainment and café life, with St. Julian's and Paceville being Malta's main nightlife areas
The South is renowned for its quiet secluded villages and fishing villages. Here you will find traditional authentic Maltese rural life at its best and is where the two Malta's prehistoric temples, Ħagar Qim and Mnajdra are located.
Driving in Malta
There is GPS satellite navigation coverage of Malta by the popular telecoms brands, however it is best to check with your car hire company as to whether they make this available to you as part of your car hire Malta Airport deal or not. Popular opinion states that the GPS mapping of the island of Malta is not altogether accurate, and on some occasions will send you up one way streets without warning.
Unlike the majority of Europe, the traffic in Malta drives on the left hand side of the road.

What Documentation Do I Require for my Cheap Car Hire Malta International Airport ?
To help you with your cheap Malta car hire, we have prepared a car hire travel checklist for your best car hire Malta Airport reservation - but to avoid a headache if you don't plan properly, you will require a valid credit card, a valid photo ID (passport or national ID), driver's licence valid for 2 years and a printed version of the car rental voucher. Depending on the Brexit outcome (please see below), you may also require an International Driving Permit (IDP). If you do not present any of the documents mentioned, the documentation is not valid or you do not have enough funds on your credit card, the car rental agent may refuse to release the vehicle and no funds will be reimbursed to you.

After Brexit - How Will My Travel from the UK to Malta be Affected?
If the United Kingdom leaves the European Union (EU) with no deal on 31st October 2019, the rules for travel to countries still in the European Union will be changing.
The major change is that travellers will need at least 6 months left on their UK passport from their date of arrival at their destination (Malta), however this only affects travel to certain countries.
Fortunately, as there is a considerable amount of confusion surrounding this, the gov.uk website contains a simple passport checker.
Will I Need a Visa for Travel to Malta Airport after Brexit ?
The European Commission has confirmed that visitors won’t need to apply for a visa if they are travelling this year (2019). However, from 2021 they may be required to pay a fee of €7 to enter the European Union.
The reason for this is that a transition period will take place once a Brexit deal is agreed, and this could take as much as 2 years.
Driving in the EU after Brexit
From 31st October 2019, in the event that there is no EU Exit deal, drivers may need an IDP (International Driving Permit) in addition to their UK driving licence to drive in EU and EEA countries.
Further information for UK citizens travelling abroad can be found on the UK Government website.
