At the Airport
Malta International Airport is built for efficient travel. The airport is small meaning you can find your way around very easily. Saying that, all the services you could possibly need can be found here. You can organise your transport, as well as access currency exchange services, and sit down for a bit to eat after your journey. The airport is also very central to the rest of the island and you can get to the main business centres around Valletta, Sliema, St Julian’s, and Smart City in less than 30 minutes.
Where to Stay
There is a great range of hotels available to the business traveller. You can choose between well-known 5 star brands, or smaller boutique hotels that offer an oasis of calm for you to relax and unwind in at the end of a long day of meetings. If you want an extra bit of privacy, you can even book into a serviced apartment or self-catering flat for the duration of your stay.
Depending on the length of your stay, there are several options available to you. There are several well priced, efficient taxi companies that provide a reliable service 24-7 and you can even book via app! If you need more flexibility during your stay, then you can always hire a car from the airport or one of the several pick up points around the island. Public transport is reliable and well-priced, but when time is short, and time equals money, it is best to stick to car or taxi.
You can pick up a dongle from one of the mobile outlets at the airport, or you can take advantage of the free Wi-Fi available in pretty much every hotel, café and bar. Connection speeds are fast and reliable, and you can find many quiet locations to sit and sip a coffee whilst catching up with your emails in peace.
If you have chance to grab some time for yourself, there are plenty of things to see and do. Due to its size, you can get to pretty much anywhere within 30 minutes and there are lots of historical sites and cultural attractions to pique your interest. If you are just looking for somewhere to grab a cocktail at the end of a day, or you want to take a business associate out for dinner, there are a whole host of top quality restaurants around Valletta and St. Julian’s that will serve you up some authentic and delicious local food.
Malta is an amazing place to visit, regardless of the nature of your trip. If you have the opportunity, you should consider extending your stay by a day or two so you can truly experience all that this beautiful island has to offer!
