The Mediterranean paradise of Malta may be one of Europe's smallest countries, but this tiny island nation at the crossroads of Europe and Africa has more than its fair share of ancient history, beautiful beaches, and historic structures. Malta International Airport not only receives daily flights from a variety of European cities, the airport also acts as the main cheap Malta car hire hub. Exploring Malta by cheap car hire is especially recommended as many of the country's attractions are accessible only by car.
Valletta, Malta's largest city located just eight kilometres from the airport, is walkable, walled, and practically surrounded by water. One of the first designated World Heritage cities, Valletta is filled with stunning medieval architecture such as the St James Cavalier, the Casa Rocca Piccola, and St John's Co-Cathedral and Museum. The Upper Barakka Gardens provide the most spectacular view of Valletta's harbour.
Although the 3,000-year-old city of Mdina is just a short drive from Valletta by Malta car hire and worth visiting, only locals are allowed to drive within the city. Malta's strong Catholic influence has made the country more relaxed and tranquil than most of its Mediterranean neighbours, but those searching for lively nightlife are likely to find it at the seaside resort of Saint Julians, not far from Valletta by Malta budget car rental.
On the other hand, those searching an even quieter and more rural atmosphere than what Malta's main island has to offer will easily find it on the nearby island of Gozo, which also boasts one of Malta's finest beaches, Ramla il-Hamra.
