Malta Luqa Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Situated in the Mediterranean halfway between Europe and Africa, the island of Malta is one of Europe’s most famous holiday destinations. Naturally, the main draw is the coastline, but Malta was also home to some of the earliest civilizations of the region, as well as plenty of seafaring peoples who came later, all of whom have left their cultural mark on the island. These are three of its main attractions:

  • Valletta. Although home to less than 6,000 permanent inhabitants, Valletta punches way above its weight when it comes to attractions. For many visitors, the most notable one is St. John’s Co-Cathedral, known for its stunning interior, and the accompanying Cathedral Museum. Others enjoy the Palace of Masters (home to Malta’s president and parliament, but partially open to visitors), the National Museum of Archaeology, and the Upper Barrakka Gardens with their stunning views of the harbor and sea below.
  • Mellieħa. Located near the main island’s northernmost point, Mellieħa is all about its coastline — it is home to several of Malta’s most beautiful (and most popular) beaches. However, there are also other attractions to enjoy, not least the Saint Agatha’s Tower, a coastal fortification known for its distinctly reddish hue and dating back to the 17th century, as well as the Tuna Fishing Museum which is dedicated to one of the main historical industries of Malta.
  • Ghadira Nature Reserve. Located near Mellieħa even further to the north, Ghadira is one of the most interesting nature preserves on the island. The area is known for its great variety of birdlife that is especially present during the migratory seasons of spring and autumn. A wetland of an official Ramsar designation, the reserve has a short walking trail with a viewing platform at its end.

I loved all of it. Booking, chosing - all conditions are clearly spelt out - picking the car up, the condition of the car - I only didn't check the windscreen liquid while picking the car up so I didn't have it. Dropping the car was also easier. What made me the most comfortable with the whole process, that made me sure I will try to use the services of this company next time too is the communication - all the conditions, reports, explanations and instructions sent - that was very clear. Thank you!

Easy to rent a car as desk in airport, short walk to get to car BUT ask for detailed instructions, as car parks are quite big and the rental one is across the perimeter road. Being right hand drive and driving on the left as in UK makes driving around easier, but watch out, as a lot of Maltese drivers just go for it. If you hesitate to much they are quite in patient. Sat nav I took with me was a god send as we hit a few road works and detours are not marked very well at all/

Nothing really to see in Luqa itself, but Malta is small enough that everything you would want to visit is a short drive away! Close enough to the airport (with a shuttle service) to make it worth going here, instead of the more expensive 'on-airport' car hire companies
