Cars or bikes can be hired from public service garages found around Malta and Gozo. In Malta one can find around 700 public service garages, while in Gozo there are about 80.
Here is the list of Public Service Garages in Malta and in Gozo.
Vehicles should be hired from public service garage owners who hold a licence issued for that purpose by Transport Malta. A copy of the Authoritys authorisation should be constantly kept on the premises to which it refers and should be posted up and conspicuously displayed in the premises.
Vehicles may be hired on a short-term or long-term lease basis and should be covered by a hire/lease agreement. Such vehicles can be of any type, model, make or colour. They are driven by the hirer. Vehicles for hire should bear number plates having a letter followed by the letters QZ or two letters followed by the letter K and followed by three numbers.
When hiring a motor vehicle, the hirer is obliged to see that the car is in good working order.
