Getting there

Couldn't actually be much easier! Flights to Malta (Luqa) are available from Ryan Air out of Luton., Easyjet fly from Manchester and Gatwick and  British Airways fly direct from Gatwick all year, and there are also flights available via Air Malta. from Manchester, Glasgow, Birmingham, Stansted and Heathrow which are now great prices!. Low season prices start from as little at £40 including taxes, return, but obviously are more expensive over the summer. Or there's the charter option. PalmAir also fly from Bournemouth and have just been voted the World's 3rd best airline!! Check out Thompson and First Choice

Then what?
Again, easy! By far the easiest is to pick up your hire car at the airport (they drive on the left!). It's a 20 minute drive to the ferry and is very clearly signposted (we will send you maps as well and help you book your car if required). The ferries run frequently, even overnight and are very cheap (about £7 for a car and 2 passengers) and there's no need to book in advance. Once you arrive in Mgarr it's a 10 minute drive to the apartment. Alternatively, you can get a cab from the airport (about £15) and another on Gozo (we can prebook this for you!). We can even arrange for your hire car to be delivered to the apartment! There's a new direct bus shuttle operating from Luqa airport straight to the Ferry terminal, and details can be found here. We suggest you try Auto Europe for a car hire quote (link opens in a new window). Their rates seem to be the best, and we use them when we visit!

Don't want to drive?
A hire car is really the best way to explore the island, and the Gozitians are good drivers. There's not much traffic on the island and only one set of traffic lights! You can't really get lost, if in doubt, head towards the Citadel of Victoria which can be seen from most of the island! However, there is also a good bus service and a stop just across the road from the apartment., even if the buses do look like they were used in the making of St Trinian's!
