Throughout the past few years, the population in Malta has gone sky high as a result of the influx of fellow foreigners from all around the globe settling in this alluring island. Despite the measures taken to keep traffic at bay, traffic remains a concern. Navigating from Point A to Point B nowadays has grown increasingly cumbersome, especially if you rely solely on public transport. Timetables might not be adhered to, leaving bus stops inundated with irascible commuters. Buses end up with passengers packed like sardines before the journey even commences. Unfortunately, the fact that a plethora of bus routes terminate from 8:30pm, not to mention the long frequencies, certainly does not facilitate the lives of daily commuters who finish their shift at midnight, while bearing in mind that night routes are not guaranteed to operate.
Luckily, taxi services cater for said matters at a fee depending on the distance between the pickup location and destination. Are you tired of having to rely on public transport? Say no more! It’s all up to you to see which of the taxi service providers below can satisfy your needs best at a reasonable price!
The island’s currently leading taxi service provider comes in a fleet of black cabs in five different types, namely Standard, Executive, Luxury Executive, Van and Executive Van. Bookings are accepted through their application, website or by calling on 21383838. So far, using the application or the website is deemed the cheapest solution and less error prone. Moreover, one can also deal with the company directly by visiting their sub-office in St. Julian’s just a few walks away from Paceville, Malta’s most prominent nightlife district. The application offers a great deal of options such as the time at which you wish to be picked up, whether you want to be picked up instantly (on-demand/ASAP booking) or later, means of payment, cab type, and ultimately the pickup location and the destination. Upon completing all the required fields, a price will be generated alongside other relevant trip information such as the time at which the cab will arrive, total distance and duration and current traffic situation. The price remains intact post submission, with the exception of pre-booking/scheduled trips.
