Why Malta is the Safest Country to Travel To - 5 Reasons

With the lifting of the lockdown travel ban, and enough summertime left that you can still enjoy a good holiday, there’s already a lot of talk over where you should go next. The lingering threat of COVID-19 has changed the way we travel and approach a trip, and while some people are still worried about what they’re going to find when they make it onto a plane, Malta’s travel sector has mostly gone back to normal. 


Here’s why Malta should be your next holiday destination in 2020, even with COVID-19 still a concern

  1. Discounts!


Thanks to support from MTA UK, we can now offer each passenger a discount amounting to £50. The offer’s available from the 1st of July to the end of this year, and travellers need to book with a deposit of just £1, and then contact us. Quote ‘MTA50’, and your savings will be with you in no-time! 


Even better than that: accommodations island-wide are slashing their rates to appeal to travellers, giving you some truly excellent choices to stay in for less than their normal rate.

  1. No quarantine necessary

While other countries have clamped down on the free movement of travellers with COVID-19 in 2020, Malta does not have a current quarantine system in place for travellers coming from exempt countries. Travellers coming to Malta or flying from Malta will be given a temperature check upon arrival, and be instructed to wear face-masks and observe social distancing regulations during baggage claims. 

The airport and all aircrafts are sanitised daily in order to prevent the spread of the infection, and all air-crafts are equipped with HEPA filters to mitigate the risk of spreading the virus. 

(Plus, if you change your mind and decide you don’t want to travel after all, or things change again, you’re not out much: just the single £1 deposit you placed initially! - We're also being flexible and accomodating much more than usual, so we're happy to move your dates if the need arises)

  1. Business as usual

Most of the island’s restaurants, hot-spots, and beaches are open as usual, with very little change to routine. Travellers visiting Malta might want to factor in longer waiting time and fewer tables as restaurants adhere to current social distancing guidelines, however they are open, accepting bookings, and ready to make the most of your trip here with as little risk as possible. 

In terms of cultural and social hot-spots, most are operating underneath the same restrictions as the airport, with face-masks being worn at all times and more awareness placed onto social distancing laws.

If you’re interested in seeing a particular attraction, we’d recommend checking with specific locations first before planning out your itinerary so that there’s no room for disappointment.

  1. Safe hotels

Hotels are making the most of the COVID-19 measures and making sure that you can use all their facilities safely, with the caveat that some hotels have shut their indoor pools to make it easier to clean.

This is not a problem, though, as hotels are offering more deals now than ever to entice you to spend your hard-earned money on a vacation with them. For people looking to travel to a beautiful location for the summer, you can check out our previous articles to see which hotel best suits your needs.

You can speak to us, let us know your budget and requirements and we'll use our experience and local knowledge of the country to find you an accomodation that suits you exact needs. You can choose to book your flights through Choice Holidays or book them yourself.


  1. Deals, deals, deals

Speaking of deals -- most of Malta’s shopping and entertainment districts have quite a few offers on, so if you’re looking for a bargain, and don’t mind wearing face-masks into stores, make sure to take a little bit extra spending money with you so you can pick up a few souvenirs.

Also, those face-masks?

You only really need to wear them if you’re going into stores; everywhere else, restaurants included, you’re free to move about as you like. 

While COVID-19 is still considered a threat, the Maltese islands’ diligent approach to locking down when the virus was at its peak, and the construction of testing centres that are still heavily used, means that COVID-19 is unlikely to gain a further foothold in the islands, making it a good place to spend your 2020 summer holidays if you’ve got that travelling itch!
