Getting around on Malta and Gozo

Airport collection service.

Info on buses, taxis, and other means of getting around.

Airport collection service.

Does anyone know if there are taxis in Gozo who will pop over to the airport to collect visiting guests and bring them back to our home in Gozo? What sort of cost might it be if it was in the middle of the night (otherwise I would go myself!)?

yes, there are - we came over with a van for €85, although a smaller car is cheaper - around €60 or so. Not sure if middle of night makes a difference

for visits and not a lot of luggage, I'd recommend to get a transfer service, which is €35 for up tp 4 people. They drop you off at the ferry and a different car picks you up on the other side (and of course you have to pay for the ferry). If there's little luggage, there's no point having the taxi bear the cost of the ferry and the extra time....
and of course your guests should pick up their own tab, although mine keep getting away with the "have no Euros" excuse on the way over :D

I pay €30 for the split transfer (named in the Recommended Suppliers forum) but the same firm will do a direct transfer for €50 but charge €10-20 more for overnight arrivals or early departures because of the potential waiting time for the ferry and the unsociable hours.

You're not alone. :brickwall:

We have always used straight through transfers and they have ranged from e63 down to e55. The 'taxi' has always been a minibus for sole use and the cheaper one was at 2.45am!

Even though there is a luggage transfer system on the ferry the straight through taxi takes a lot of hassle out of the journey.
