Getting Around

Once you land in Malta, you will find that getting around the island is quite manageable. The size of the country is an advantage in the sense that nowhere is truly far away and various transport options are always available. Because of this, arriving to your chosen accommodation, the school, and anywhere else on the island should be an easy process.

Malta hosts a daily bus service that runs from early morning to around 11 pm daily, with a few late night routes also taking place during weekends. Bus fares are quite cheap and can be even cheaper if you buy a weekly ticket. There are various cards available depending on your frequency of travel and the length of your stay in Malta.

It is also possible to rent a car. There are various outlets available for this including the Malta International Airport. This service should cost you a few hundred euros at most. Please be informed of Malta’s driving regulations – one of the most important being that the Maltese drive on the left.

Taxis are not cheap but are usually quite standard fares compared to international rates. When sharing taxis with friends, trips become a lot more affordable but one may still prefer to use them as a last resort for when buses are not available. They have a metered or fixed rate.

Boats and Ferries

People travel to Gozo via a ferry service leaving from/to Ċirkewwa, Malta and Mġarr, Gozo. Ferries cross very frequently at all times during the day, the journeys are cheap and quite short (not lasting more than 25 minutes). Passengers pay less than €5 per round trip. To get to Comino you may catch a boat from the Sliema ferries or from Ċirkewwa. For a more adventurous trip, one might want to get there by speedboat.
