Malta is comprised of three islands: Malta, Gozo, and Comino, and driving is permitted on the larger islands of Malta and Gozo. Malta is packed full of interesting sights and there are lots of interesting things to do in Gozo.
Renting a car in Malta is one of the best ways to explore. While Maltese buses are a good alternative, a rental car allows easy access to the more remote sights: we managed to visit all the Game of Thrones filming locations in Malta and Gozo, we visited the three UNESCO World Heritage Sites, discovered the best things to do in Gozo and had fun exploring the island of Malta.

The biggest benefit of having a rental car in Malta is that you can visit the off-the-beaten-track sights and stay in hotels from the crowds. This also allows you to save money as generally hotels in urban areas are more expensive as tourists can’t travel too far from them without a car.
In Malta, the smaller the car the better. There are many narrow roads and tight spaces to navigate and we found life easier with a smaller car!
Roads are narrow and we preferred renting a small car in Malta.
