Malta car rental companies
Malta is a fairly inexpensive car rental destination, compared to other popular tourist locations in the Mediterranean. Even at the height of the tourism season it is often possible to rent a car in Malta from around £100 per week, if you book via internet search engines and well in advance. At this rate usually only small city cars are available, but by looking deeper into the price list you might find very competitive deals in a variety of rental classes, including estate cars, convertibles, SUV’s and minivans to rent in Malta.
