Looking for the best Malta airport transfers to your place of stay? You’ve come to the right place.
Today I’ll show you what the transfer options are, what you can expect in terms of cost and where you can get the best rates for a hassle-free transfer to and from Malta International Airport.
The best provider I’ve used in Malta are Any.cab, which is a local company that offer both airport transfers but also regular taxi rides. Why I recommend them:
You can check prices and book your airport transfer with any.cab here:
I don’t know about you, but when I’ve landed after a long flight I want to just get to my place of stay as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Although you can book transfers when you arrive in Malta, you often end up paying more and you’ll end up queuing to get booked.
Booking in advance means you’ll have someone waiting for you as soon as you enter the arrivals hall, whether you book a shuttle bus transfer or a private taxi.
The cost of your transfer will depend on two things:
A private taxi is more expensive, but for some it’s worth not having to stop at a number of hotels and having to wait at the airport for all passengers to have been collected for a shuttle bus journey.
The below table gives you a rough idea of the differences in travel time between each of those transport methods and the estimated cost for each, to a few of the popular transfer destinations in Malta.
If you decide to go for a shuttle bus, I usually recommend booking a transfer to and from the airport in advance with Holidayextras.

Transfers to and from Mellieha can take 30-50 minutes with a private transfer, depending on any traffic congestion.
Being a destination that’s pretty far away from the airport and will have several stops along the way using a shuttle bus, I’d recommend using a private taxi transfer.
Transfers to and from St. Paul’s Bay, Bugibba and Qawra back to the airport usually take around 30-40 minutes, again, depending on the time of day and how busy the roads are.
Being a popular destination for tourists, expect shuttle buses to be pretty busy and pricey considering it’s shared transport. Private taxis usually work out close to the same, if not cheaper than a shared bus.
If you’ve chosen to stay in Gozo, getting to your place of accommodation to and from the airport may take a little while. Because of the distance, expect a transfer time of around 1.5-2 hours total:
The cheapest way to get a taxi transfer to Gozo is:
Total cost for two adults: Around €55 / £50 / $63
