The Simplest And Best Way To Get To Your Destination

Now you have landed at the airport. What is the next step? How do you get to your destination?

There are a number of transfers in Malta from which you can take from Malta International Airport and from any other place on the island.

You can choose either a personalized transfer or a shuttle service sharing the trip with others which will be cheaper. For us the best of all is a private chauffeured car. We at Malta Info Guide have used it very often and it is absolutely great and it is our top recommendation.

1. A Shuttle Service for Arrivals or Departures

A van that is used for transfers from the airport and vice-versa.

It is good to pre-arrange a shuttle service to meet you at the airport. It is cheaper than a taxi as you share the service with others. The shuttle will also be carrying other passengers and the driver speaks English.

This service is also great if you are a group of 4 or more and you have lots of luggage. You will be met at the arrivals terminal and picked up with your minds at rest and it is all organised from beforehand. It is a service that is very frequently used by many passengers.

It is great to save money if you are also one or two persons. It will be ideal to book your transfer online, no worries for later when you arrive and especially if you will need Euros to pay for the service.

This shuttle has many positive feedback reviews.

2. Private Transfers for Arrivals or Departures

Several transfer vehicles parked in a car park.

A private transfer directly to your accommodation. This type of service is more expensive than the above due to the fact that it is in a private vehicle and with no other passengers.

If you are more than one person up to four, the cost of a private transfer will cost you less when you consider the cost divided by the number of passengers.

The driver will meet you at the arrival lounge and will take you just two minutes walk out of the terminal.

To fly back home the driver will pick you up and will drive you to the airport with enough time to check your luggage in. When making your booking it is important to enter all your details correctly.

The private transfer is available up to 4 people per vehicle as you will be picked up in a normal size vehicle and not a van.


3. A Cheap Alternative to your Accommodation or Airport

Take a Public Transport bus and buy your tickets from the bus. It is the cheapest way to get to your destination.

You will have to handle your own luggage on the bus and on arrival at your accommodation. You have to walk to the bus stops from where the route bus passes.

This takes much more time as the bus goes round various tourist accommodation areas. You need to plan substantial amount of time for this service. See further details on this service where we provide a list of hotels that are close to the various stops along the bus route.

If to include that this services will take around one or two hours.
