•If you’re travelling to Malta don’t forget the english adapter!! But if you do you can still buy it there it costs about 3-4€.

•Also if you like wine you need to try it there! You can buy it in all the markets we absolutely loved this two: Blue Nun-Delicate Crisp Fruity white and Crisp Fruity Rosè.

• If you smoke iqos you need to know this! IQOS is banned in Malta. So buy the cigarettes in your country and take them with you.

•Get around

•By bus

The bus drivers are crazy I think they don’t know how to drive. The buses run all over the island. The bus system is notoriously slow, with bus lines doing many detours and buses often stuck in traffic jams, especially around 6PM.

If you plan to travel around Malta extensively, you may want to purchase the 7-day 'Explore Card' for €21, or the 'Plus' version for €39 (which includes many extra tourist-oriented services). Those can be bought at any Malta Public Transport Sales Office. A single ride fare is €2.00 in the summer (June through October), €1.50 in winter, and €3.00 at night, and you can buy the ticket directly from the driver.

Also don't watch the bus number before it is fully stopped and empty from its passengers, as it can change its number at that time (for example a bus can arrive to Valletta numbered as 51, but then depart as number 53).

•By car

Renting a car in Malta is a fine way to see the country, since it's cheap and driving conditions have steadily improved greatly. Having your own car allows you to make a lot more of your trip and discover the many hidden charms these small islands have to offer. UK driving rules apply, with drivers keeping to the left side of the road.

Prebook your car rental online as this works out cheaper than booking when you arrive.

•To Gozo

There is the regular ferry service between Ċirkewwa on Malta and Mġarr on Gozo, it goes every 45 minutes in the summer and almost as often in the winter (with lower frequencies in the evening, and very low frequency at night). You buy a return ticket at the Gozo end for €4.65 (no ticket required in Malta, though you can buy your return ticket from there, and save time in Gozo). The ferry is not strictly on time, and it can even depart before schedule.

•To Comino

There are tourist services to Comino. Some of the boats depart next to the terminal of the larger ferry, offering a return ticket for €13 (April 2019). One boat brings passengers to the Blue lagoon, then there is a choice - either return back to the same ferry terminal or take another boat to Gozo. Both options are included in the ticket. There is no return trip from Gozo to Malta - use the regular ferry. Each trip takes around 10-15 minutes. The departures are hourly, from 09:00 to 17:00.
