The Maltese Islands are not very large, which makes getting around relatively trouble-free.
The public bus service on Malta and Gozo is a good way to get around as buses serve the major tourist areas, go practically everywhere and are cheap and efficient. The longest bus journey takes about fifty minutes; the average ride is between twenty and thirty minutes.

Renting a car is also a good option if you want to get to the farther reaches of the island, especially as taxis can be somewhat expensive. All the road signs are in English and driving is on the left.
Major and local car hires are located on Malta and Gozo with daily rates of €16 – €28. International and national driving licenses are acceptable. A number of internationally based car hiring firms as well as local garages also offer the services of chauffeur-driven cars. Renting scooters, motorbikes or mountain bicycles is an option, but travel this way can be somewhat limited as not all roads are two-wheel vehicle friendly.
A regular ferry service links Malta to Gozo, taking about 20 minutes each way. There are also regular boat services between each island and Comino.
