About GPS or Google Maps when renting a car in Malta
Malta is a relatively small island, and Gozo is even smaller. At 27km long and 14.5km wide, getting lost on Malta’s roads shouldn’t get too complicated. There are sufficient road signs to get you to popular areas of the island but rural areas do lack signage. The advantage of getting lost on Malta’s roads is that you get to experience sights that you would have otherwise missed. There are a multitude of breathtaking spots once you leave guide books and popular places behind. If you’re not used to driving on the left though, or are tight on time, you might wish to limit the getting lost part. Using a GPS or google maps can thus make life easier.
Prepare your GPS device for your Malta trip and download the required maps. You can also rent a GPS from your rental car provider. Renting from your provider ensures that your GPS device is up to date with the most recent Malta maps. Most providers only charge for the first few days of GPS rental; a plus if you’re in Malta for a longer period of time.
Using Google Maps is also an easy and straightforward solution when driving in Malta. Check roaming charges beforehand though to avoid incurring hefty costs. If you’re travelling from an EU country, the ‘roam like at home’ rules come in handy: this new regulation ensures that you pay the same for roaming as when you’re at home. Google Street view is now available for Malta too. Added to these options, there are also various apps that make driving in Malta easier. Download one that meets your preference and the island is all yours for exploring!
