Coronavirus Update

Here is the latest information concerning COVID-19 and renting a car on DiscoverCars.com.

We are working around the clock to keep up with the constantly-changing situation throughout the world so we can provide you with up-to-date information regarding travel restrictions, rental branch opening hours, shuttle services, safety measures, and more. Our Customer Support team is ready to assist you any time, night or day.

If seeking general travel advice, we strongly recommend consulting the guidance of your government and the World Health Organization.

Your health and safety are of the utmost importance to us.

If you do travel, we want you to be as safe as possible while doing so. Thus, we have added information in our search results letting you know which rental companies are disinfecting their vehicles to prevent the spread of the virus.

Badge

A badge is shown next to all cars that we have confirmed are disinfected between each and every renter.

Search filter

Use the filter on the left-hand side of the search results to only see vehicles that are confirmed to be thoroughly disinfected.

We understand your need for flexibility.

We’d like to tell you that we’ve become more flexible, but the truth is that we were always flexible. If you need to change the dates of your rental or you decide to travel somewhere else, you can modify your booking in the My Booking section without charge (although the rental price may change).

Malta Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Get your rental car at Malta Airport! Then drive to nearby Valletta, Malta’s capital, and park outside the center to explore the city on foot. There are very few places in the world with so many classical buildings in such a small area. See St. John’s Co-Cathedral and visit the Cathedral Museum, which is home to two works by Caravaggio.

Hypogeum and the seven megalithic temples are impressive too—they were built by one of Europe’s oldest prehistoric civilizations. Some sites are located on the outskirts of Valletta and others on Gozo, an island that you can reach by ferry. While you’re there, or on Comino, the smallest island of the Maltese archipelago, drive your rental to local villages and experience the traditional atmosphere. Back on the island of Malta, don’t miss the fish market in the village of Marsaxlokk.

Malta might be small, but there’s so much to see. Why not get a longer term car rental and explore more? You can even pick up your rental car at Malta Airport and drop it off in Valletta or at another location. Start planning your adventure now!

Malta Airport is also known as Luqa Airport, Valletta Airport, and Ajruport Internazzjonali ta' Malta.
