You can buy pre-paid tickets from the booth at the Welcomers’ Hall in the arrival area or pre-book your ride via the Malta Taxi app that is available on Google Play and App Store. They are easy to find in the streets or by calling them.

Private transfer is a good option if you are traveling with your family or with a group of friends, as you get the privacy and comfort you need.

AtoB transfer service is there for you as you can pre-book online your transfer and plan your trip. Moreover, personalize it according to your needs by selecting bottled water, extra waiting time, or extra stop.
