Maltatransfer discount code – cheap Malta airport transfers

A reminder that the Maltatransfer discount code “maltapoints” will still give you approximately 15% off airport transfers with maltatransfer.com.

The exact discount will depend on your booking, but will be clearly indicated before you need to commit to the purchase.

Maltatransfer operates in such a way that it almost always offers a lower price than a taxi from MLA (the only possible exception to this I have found is Valletta if 3 or 4 people are travelling, to where taxis seem to have a particularly low fixed rate tariff). We reviewed it here.

Maltapoints does not receive any commission from your booking – the full discount is passed on to you.

How do the maltatransfer prices compare to a taxi?

Full details of taxi fares from Malta airport are available here. However, below is a summary comparison of prices (including the additional “maltapoints” Maltatransfer discount code saving) to some of the main tourist spots. Savings with Maltatransfer go as high as €22.

Sliema/St Julians

  • Taxi: 1-4 persons €20
  • Malta transfer: 1 person €7/2 people €10/3 people €13/4 people €17

Valletta

  • Taxi: 1-4 persons €15
  • Malta transfer: 1 person €7/2 people €10/3 people €13/4 people €17

Mellieha

  • Taxi: 1-4 persons €29.50
  • Malta transfer: 1 person €10/2 people €15/3 people €21/4 people €26

Cirkewwa (for Gozo ferry)

  • Taxi: 1-4 persons €32
  • Malta transfer: 1 person €10/2 people €15/3 people €21/4 people €26

So as can be seen, where you’re travelling in numbers of 1-3, Maltatransfer consistently saves money compared to a taxi.

In any event, please note that while we have stated that a taxi will carry up to 4 people, this is unlikely to be viable if you all have large suitcases (and hand luggage), in which case 2-3 people is more realistic.

Finally, the above prices are based on the adult maltatransfer fare – you get substantial additional discounts for children, which can be calculated via a test booking. Obviously, children take up one seat in a taxi.

In short, if you’re at all uncertain as to whether you’re better off going by taxi or Maltatransfer, simply compare the taxi price here to the Maltatransfer price here (in the latter case, don’t forget to include the “maltapoints” Maltatransfer discount code).

It’s also well worth bearing in mind maltatransfer.com for your return journey to the airport. You will not benefit from any fixed taxi price when travelling back to the airport, and Maltapoints has heard a number of stories of tourists being ripped off on this route (€40 from Sliema to the airport is often quoted).

Is there a cheaper option than Maltatransfer?

Maltatransfer is not directly cheaper than the Arriva bus (€1.30 regardless of destination), but should be weighed up against the fact that the Arriva bus generally takes over an hour just to get to Sliema, can be extremely full, and will not drop you at your hotel (or necessarily anywhere near your hotel).
