The car was fine, although it was more of a city car and not quite suitable for the hills in Gozo and the rest of Malta. But all in all the car did the job. Tips for fellow travellers, be careful where the car is parked. As the car plates indicate whether it is a rental or not, fines may occur more for cars that are rented when parked.

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

Driving on the left side took a little getting used to, but it makes getting around the island of Malta to explore all the sites much easier, and cheaper as well.

Malta is a nice country. Highly recommend renting a car as distances are short, however taxi rates are expensive.

Malta is a fantastic island to explore - and also take the ferry to gozo for the day. Recommend going over summer, November wasn't the best weather.

Used the car to drive to Gozo to visit my parents who retired there so didn't see much of Luqa. Visit frequently so will be using Surprice again for sure

A car is the best way to travel around Malta and Gozo as the islands are so small you can get to all the unusual/unique places.

We were staying in Gozo, and drove straight through Luqa. having a car gives you freedom to roam and explore at your leisure, these fabulous Maltese towns. Gozo is a reasonable drive from Luqa, and of course, you need to get the ferry to Mgarr. You don't pay to get to Gozo, you only pay the return journey. A return fare for a small car and two occupants is €20.35. Popping back to Malta, Valletta is superb, steeped in history and loaded with a massive selection of restaurants, Cafe's and Bars. We chose the Saturday to visit Malta, as the Maltese people flock to Gozo at the weekend... It worked out well.

Hard to navigate the airport. Very hard to find car drop off as all the other car hires are together but surprice is at a separate location

Although there are buses on Gozo they are every hour which isn't frequent enough with a family. Therefore renting a car allowed us to go where we wanted when we wanted. Free parking in Victoria too which was great!
