Malta Luqa 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.

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!
