About Renting a manual car in Malta
Whilst driving an automatic transmission car might be more convenient, manual transmission cars are a more favoured option in Malta, and Europe as a whole. When looking for car rental for your Malta holiday, you will easily realise that there is far more choice for manual transmission vehicles.
Added to their greater availability, manual cars are cheaper to rent and not overly difficult to secure, even if you’re booking at the last minute. When it comes to fuel efficiency, there is negligible difference between automatic and manual.
The Maltese love their cars and an automatic transmission vehicle is widely seen as the ‘lazy’ option. A manual car is more fun to drive. If you’ve never driven a manual car before, starting out may be a little tricky, especially due to the hilly nature of our islands, but you will soon grow accustomed to changing gears.
If you think that driving a manual would be a challenge, especially if you’re also not accustomed to driving on the left-hand side, then maybe opting for an automatic transmission car would be a better option for you.
A Hyundai i10 or i20, a Chevrolet Lacetti Saloon or Station Wagon, a Suzuki or Maruti Jeep, or a Kia Picanto in manual transmission are perfect for your travels on the island. Having your own rental car means you can explore at your own pace and to your own liking. Guide books are only there as a guide; time to get behind the wheel and discover the islands’ secrets.
