Luqa is a village on the Mediterranean island of Malta whose proximity to its International Airport often makes it the first port of call for visitors out to explore the many historic sites and tourist destinations in the beautiful weather which Malta typically enjoys. We recommend car hire in Luqa for anyone fresh off a flight who wants to head for a relaxation spot in minimum time and with minimum fuss.
Due to the two nations' long-time association, much of the Maltese culture is influenced by British tastes. To that end there are many attractions around Malta with a distinctly British flavour which can be experienced when you hire a car in Luqa.
What is now Malta International Airport was once an RAF base; the British presence remained until the late 1970s and their leaving the island allowed it to transform into the civilian transport hub it is today. As the only airport in the entire nation, most passengers landing in Malta will be able to enjoy the sights in nearby Luqa including the hugely impressive St Andrew's Church.
Hiring a car in Luqa allows visitors to get around the whole island in good time thanks to its great road systems; wherever you're planning to stay in Malta you're assured of a relaxing holiday with plenty of things to see and do including several World Heritage Sites listed by UNESCO.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
