    FAQs About Hiring a Car in Malta

    Can I hire a car in Malta if I am under 25?

    Hiring a car in Malta when under 25 is relatively simple. The only caveat is that most car hire suppliers will charge an additional "young driver surcharge," which is drivers under the age of 25 are subject to.

    Is car hire insurance required in Malta?

    Most countries will require drivers to have third party liability insurance, at the very least, when hiring a car. However, Auto Europe makes car hire insurance simple and includes both third party liability and fire insurance in all of our car hire rates - so, you can pick-up with confidence and take to the streets with ease.

    Driving in Malta

    Malta is a small nation in the Mediterranean, made up of a group of islands south of Italy. There are three main islands, as well as a number of smaller uninhabited ones which you can also visit. Malta is a popular destination for travellers, with visitors coming to experience the stunning natural beauty and great weather, as well as an exciting history which dates back over 7,000 years.

    Once arriving in Malta, collect your car hire and start exploring Valletta. This capital city is a world heritage listed destination located on the east coast of the island and features buildings from the 16th century. While in Valletta be sure to visit St Johns Co-Cathedral, the National Museum of Archaeology and the Manoel Theatre, which is the 2nd oldest theatre in Europe.

    Malta has attractions to suit all tastes, and often the hardest part of the journey will be deciding what to see and do next. One highly recommended attraction is the Hypogeum of Hal Saflieni, an underground complex dating back over 5,000 years which includes a temple, burial chambers and halls carved from the stone deep beneath the ground. You can also visit one of the many ancient temples on the island, or perhaps take a tour of the impressive Verdala Palace.

    If you would prefer to do more exploring on foot then drive along the coast and stop at any one of the picturesque beaches or park your car at the ferry terminals and go on a day trip across to the islands of Gozo or Comino, both with great attractions of their own.

    Country Essentials

    Unlike most other parts of Europe, traffic in Malta flows on the left-hand side of the road and passing is allowed on the right only. The speed limit in the city of Malta is around 50km per hour, open roads around 65km per hour and 80km per hour on the motorway. It is compulsory for anyone travelling in a motor vehicle to wear a seatbelt and just like in Australia, the use of a mobile phone whilst driving is not permitted.

    Standard Inclusions

    Auto Europe includes the Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and theft protection in the Malta car hire prices. The CDW and theft protection reduce the liability and excess of the driver to a capped amount. Fire insurance is also included in the price of your car hire.

    Licence Requirements

    The minimum age to hire a car in Malta is 21 years old and you must have held your driver's licence for at least one whole year. There is the possibility that drivers under the age of 25 will incur a young driver's surcharge. The maximum age for car hire in Malta is 70 years old. It is required that visitors carry their driver's licence on them at all times when driving as well as registration documents for their vehicle and insurance documents.

    Tolls and Freeways

    There are currently no toll roads in Malta. The city consists of a number of paved and unpaved roads. The main road that runs from the deep south to the far north of the island is called the Tal-Barrani Road. The widest road in Malta is the Aldo Moro Street in Marsa and the busiest road is the Birkirkara Bypass.

    Border Crossings

    Hire cars are not permitted to be taken off the island or driven outside of Malta. Domestic and international one-way hires are not permitted in Malta.
