    Wembley Taxi Services

    Wembley Taxi Service is situated just opposite Portomaso and the grounds of the Palace of Grand Master Spinola. You can use their services 24 hours however at times especially on weekends and when there are importaat events in Malta for example on Christmas eve or New Year's eve its hard to find a taxi sevrice so be careful ! If you catch a taxi from the airport to St.Julians you will have to pay roughly Lm (Maltese Liri) 8.00.

    Bus to Mellieha

    A bus in St. Julian's

    Bus no. 645 leaves every half hour from Sliema via St. Julian's to Mellieha. Find out about the timetables if you're planning a night out in St. Julians while staying in Mellieha as the buses stop running quite early in the evening!

    public bus

    Public buses are cheap and plentiful. It costs €0.47 to get to Valletta, and takes about 15 minutes.

    Many of the buses are vintage!

    Many are modern.

    Local radio (playing rap, hiphop...) is often on the PA system as you bounce along. Fun!

    Get your ticket from the driver. They give change, but not sure if they welcome large notes. Keep it easy for them and have a coin ready.

    All the bus routes "hub" around the City Gate terminus in Valletta.

    Try it - cheap, fun & easy!

  • One way 25 cents

    You can easily get to St Julians and Paceville - the nightlife area, by bus (from Sliema) no. 66 or no. 70. There are also buses from Valletta. One way ticket is 25 cents of Maltese pound = 0.6 cents of euro.

    To go around you can walk or you can take a cab which will take you 4-7 pounds for a short drive (10-20 euros).

    Ryanair

    by iaint Updated Mar 17, 2010

    I got to Malta with Ryanair non-stop from Edinburgh. Flight time posted as 4 hours, but in reality about 3hours 40 minutes.

    I've used Ryanair before for short flights, and worried a bit about a longer one - lack of service, tightly packed seating, no seat allocations etc. However, all went well. Left on time and arrive early. The plane was only 70% full so I had a row to myself. No drunks. A few screaming kids, but nothing intrusive.

    I had a slight wait for my bag on arrival, but Edinburgh is always much worse, so can't really complain.

    About £275 return, but much cheaper and faster than Air Malta via Heathrow.

    airport taxis

    by iaint Updated Apr 5, 2010

    Taxis are very expensive. I'm told €20 for the 20 minutes trip from the airport to St Julians.

    I'm also told that if, on arrival, you stand in the public bus queue the taxi drivers will come and offer to take you for €15!

    I paid €21 for a "taxi" my hotel arranged for me to head back to the airport. Didn't mind, as I hadn't paid anything on arrival (long story).

    The alternative is to take the public bus - €0.47 x 2. You'd take one into Valletta and then another one out to St Julians. Then walk to the hotel. could be a bit sweaty in summer!

    Check the timetables

    by Turska Written Jun 5, 2011

    If you come here to eat out or party out, you should check the bus timetables. The nightbuses go only at friday and saturday at winter. I think they might go more often at summer, but see the info from the ATP- web page. The taxis are quite expensive, even if many other things aren´t at Malta.

    Bus to the beach; Mellieha Bay

    by glamourprincess Written Aug 21, 2006

    If you stay in St.Julians or Paceville and want to go to the beach head to the bus terminal which is situated in the back of Paceville. From there you can catch bus 645 (heading north) which stops at Mellieha Bay (the best beach in Malta). It only costs about 20 cent. You pay as you get on the bus. The bus driver do not have change money, and may send you off the bus if you don't have small or the correct amount of money. Also, the bus gets really crowded! So you have to expect to be standing the whole way.. It takes about 50 minutes to get to Mellieha Bay from Paceville/St.Julians and it can get extremly hot and uncomfortable in a crowded bus.. my best tip: try to get on the bus at the stop before to get a seat!

    Bus to Valletta and Sliema

    by glamourprincess Written Aug 21, 2006

    If you are staying in Saint Julians or Paceville the best way to get to Valletta and Sliema is by bus; number 62. It is really cheap; 20-40 cents. It gets really hot and sweaty though, and the bus is always packed! Make sure to have the exact amount of money (no bills!) as the bus driver have no or little change to give away.

    Malta Taxi Online Company is the only one I will recommened if you are in Malta on holiday, They are based in Sliema and they operate 24 hours however at times especially on weekends and when there are important events in Malta like in Christmas eve or New Year's eve its hard to find a taxi service so be careful ! If you need any Transfer local from Sliema to St'Julian's contact them direct, you don't need to pay any commision to the restaurant or to the bar man, please safe money, We used this company last year all our holidays, which are so relaible a taxi fare from the airport to St.Julians or Sliema we have paid roughly 18euros.
