Cheap Malta Holidays - How to Plan a Cheap Malta Holiday


If you are planning a trip to Malta, there are many ways for you to do so and not have to spend a fortune. Malta is located in the Mediterranean Sea and comprises the islands of Malta, Gozo and Comino. Surrounded by the beautiful Mediterranean, it is a country filled with beauty and history.

Coming into the country, you will land at the only airport in the country in Valletta, which is also the capital city. Valletta is the largest city in the country with a population of approximately 6,098 people in the city proper according to a recent survey.

Planning a trip to Malta takes time and definitely a lot of research. The suggestions below are just a brief listing of how you can enjoy your trip while saving money.

Online Flight and Hotel Reservations

There are several online websites that cater to people who want to save money on airline flights. They have the ability to research airlines to find the best prices possible for a flight to Malta. Often these websites will also have a feature allowing you to book a reservation at a hotel for a discounted rate if you book both the flight and hotel at the same time. This can be a significant savings for you. Checking prices offered through these services against pricing you receive directly from an airline or hotel should be done before you make your reservations.

Renting a Flat

Depending on how long you will be staying in Malta, you may want to rent a flat (apartment). Prices to rent a flat range from $500.00 per week to $750.00 per week. This could be a huge savings over a hotel room which average approximately $97.00 per night in winter and $152.00 in summer. The savings here can come in several ways. First the cost of the hotel room versus flat, second, in a flat, you will have a kitchen available to you. If you can prepare food in your flat, you can save a lot of money on dining out.

Public Transportation

Malta has a very good public transportation system. Buses run from Valletta and go almost anywhere in the country. Considering the price of renting a car (not to mention that the driving may be hazardous as Malta follows the European tradition of driving on the left side of the road), this can also be a very large savings for you. By taking the bus, you can also sightsee at the same time, without having to concentrate on the road.

Off-Season Travel

Since summer is the height of tourist season in Malta, travelling to Malta during the winter or off-season, is a very good way to save money. The climate in Malta is hot and dry during the summer and cooler and a bit wet during the winter months. The average rainfall during December is 4.06 inches. You may be able to score a better deal on hotels during the winter.


Sightseeing does not have to be expensive either. With all of the architectural beauty in this country, sightseeing could be as simple as walking the streets observing the beauty of the buildings. Of course, there are also many beautiful temples to visit also. Pricing for any of the normal tourist attractions is standard, whether you travel in the summer or the winter, but, you can visit as many or as few as you would like.

There are many ways to have cheap Malta holiday, it takes time and imagination. Booking your trip as far in advance can also save a significant amount of money. The closer you get to your holiday date, the more expensive your flight and hotel may be.
