Car Rental in Malta Mini Guide

Located in the Mediterranean Sea, Malta is an island laying to the south of Sicily. Malta forms part of an archipelago and three of the island are inhabited which are Comino, Gozo and Malta and an excellent place to make use of a Rental Car - If you are looking for a budget option we have a good range of economy hire cars to choose from such as the Peugeot 108 or the Toyota Aygo. If you fancy something a bit more fun to drive around the island then we have the Suzuki Jimny or the Fiat 500 convertible available to hire, where you can really feel the wind through your hair.

Exploring the island in your hire car is the perfect way to see all the sights, scenery and wonderful beaches at your own leisure and pace.
